WHAT I LIKE ABOUT FALL!



All those "Fall Festival's "  
That's what I Love!


Saturday I went to the festival in the next town, they have it every October. I love going to them, all the food and other goodies they have.









I love the town with it's old buildings. I don't like it when towns tare down the buildings and build new ones.  This small town is just minutes from where I live and still looks like the 1800's but in a good way!






 





 Now for "The Other Goodies"!

Look what I found, a booth that won my heart!
Teacups!
Sure had to bring a trio and another teacup home with me!!

This one is Royal Windsor,
England



 It has a touch of pink on it. I love the handle and the gold trim.


 This trio is my favorite!
It's hard to read the back but from what I can make out, it's 
Century Services Corp. Somi Vitrious , Alliance,Ohio
Autumn Gold


 
 Just perfect for fall harvest tea!




 On our way out~~~~






We stopped and got Boiled Peanuts!


Can you smell them boiling?
Hope your fall day is a Blessed One!

Pumpkin Spice Cake ~ recipe



I made a cake this weekend, it turned out really good, everyone loved it so I want to share it with you.
It's so easy to make, just TWO  ingredients!







Just a box of cake mix and a 15 oz can of 100% pumpkin.
Bake at 350degrees about 30 -35 minutes.

And it turns out like this. You can make muffins too or cupcakes!

I whipped up 2cups heavy whipping cream with 1/4 cup confectioners sugar and made a topping. I then drizzled caramel over the top and sprinkled cinnamon over it. It was so good!

  But I didn't wait for it to cool so this is what happened! Went right off the cake.
It always pays to wait for better results!
So I waited for it to cool and and tried again, 
it taste the same, but looked better or at least stayed on the cake.




You can make it with a yellow cake mix, but I like it spicy!



Have a Blessed Autumn Day!

On the Road Again



With this cooler weather it's good to get out and enjoy it!
So we do! Yes, every chance we get because colder weather is on the way and then we may just cuddle up and stay inside.


Yep, this is from a past winter in my yard!
 Love my iphone it does things I didn't know it would do!
 
But until then back to Autumn.
 
 
 Another outing, with my grandson, Johnathan.


Well Peach season may be over but Lane is open for all kinds of Autumn fun.


 The kids were enjoying these farm tractor's.



And the corn maze!



 And the children's hay maze.



 But I'll sit and rock awhile!




 I had rather go inside and see what I can find!
Teacups and Teapots, just what I like!



 And Pumpkins!



Here I am "The Great Pumpkin"
 


After getting lunch at the restaurant inside. It was back outside again.




So much to see and do, if you wanted to.

 

Then it was time to leave!

 Until next time,

Have a Blessed Weekend!

Day Trip Day Two





 Love going to other towns and seeing how they've decorated for Autumn!  This Scarecrow is outside the restaurant that we love eating at in Warm Springs. They really go all out for each season.

Here are more photo's outside the restaurant.







After having lunch in the restaurant we stopped in the next town on our way home. I love this store, it is full of antiques and odds and ends.


And I couldn't close this without posting my granddaughter when I took care of her (Morgan) while my daughter worked, she was two years (young).  Three of my friends, with their daughters,and I would have "play dates" at each others homes. This photo was at my home, we had a pumpkin decorating party.


Look at those curls, and today she uses a straightener to straighten her hair.


Another 'play date' we took them to a pumpkin patch. We would go on hayrides and other fun trips.

Hope you're having a great Autumn and making memories.


Have a Blessed and Joy Filled Day!

Thoughts for Sunday

To everything there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under 
the heavens.
Ecclesiastes 3:1


 In this season of our lives may we find joy 
and happiness.  As the Autumn leaves turn
bright colors and God's beauty shines all around,
as seasons change from one to the next, may
these changes in nature remind us to make 
changes in our own lives and attitudes .
Share our  joy and and blessings with others.

 The joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10


Enjoy this fall day which we have been blessed with, 
with a thankful Heart.

Have a Blessed and Joy filled Sunday!

Day Trip One of Many






I love taking road trips, just get in the car and go!
Where to ?
It doesn't matter, just drive!

That's what we did one day this week!


So ride we did, (4 hours) around and up and down! By fields and pastures!


WE have great mountainous views (some would call them hills, but I call them mountains) around where we live here in western part of  central Georgia.





Don't you love these clouds!!
It was a nice day to enjoy God's beautiful handiwork!

After riding for so long we did get hungry! We ended up in the town where we met, married, gave birth to and raised our girls for most of their younger lives. We stopped at the Bar B Que place where we took them when they were so young they would stand up in the back seat to see! (no seat belts back then)
 

 By the looks of this sign, it hadn't changed since the '60 s!


 Back then there were 'car hops' that would come to your car and take your order.



Today you have to go inside to eat or walk up to the window and order for yourself. I did go to  the window since we had our Chihuahua (fur baby) with us! We ate in the car and then traveled on.


We ordered what we got- those - so - many - years ago! 
It's nice every now and then to revisit old memories!

Find joy in your day and be Blessed!
