Autumn Blog Hop

Welcome to my Autumn Blog Hop Page.

Lot's of fun stuff for you to see and DO here! There may even be some things you may want to copy & save.  Just hope you have fun & enjoy yourself.

What better way to start then with Toni's Tuesday meme?

1. Favorite Autumn Activity? A walk in the woods
2. Favorite Autumn Meal? chili with sour cream & cheese toppings
3. Favorite Autumn Drink? cider
4. Favorite Autumn Weather? sunny and 75

This graphic goes perfectly with Toni's meme.  Don't you think?

How about a recipe for a pumpkin cake?  This one is from Susan Branch, one of my favorite blogs to visit!

Autumn Ambience

Thick leaf-fall glows amber, ochre, bronze
on yards, walks and lawn.
Gutters gather gold dust.
Afternoon sunlight bounces colors skyward,
charges ambient air a mellow yellow.
And I, who walk amid this Midas mist,
am gilded head to toe, a living statue
raised to honor Autumn.

Sister Anna Maria Ahl, SC, 2008

This page would not be complete w/o my favorite friend, Maxine.

So there you have it, dear friends.  You have reached the end of my Autumn Blog Hope page.  Hope you enjoyed your visit as much as I enjoyed having you.  Next stop . . . Susan.  Just click on the quilt square below to go there. 

Thank you, Kim for the great idea. Hope we do this more often even monthly!
