It's beginning to feel alot like fall around here

Fall is hands down my favorite season of the year and it's beginning to feel like it here in Northern Illinois.

My house is "falled up". I've never been big in to Halloween decorations, but love the pumpkins and dried berries.

I've been met with nasty fog the last few mornings on the way to work. Never mind it's foggy, but then this idiot driver is taking a picture as they're driving. I'm a safe driver, really I am!

The trees are starting to turn.

Some more than others.

The soybean fields are a ripe shade of gold and leaves are falling off the plants.
The corn is starting to dry and ready for harvest.

And of course, no Fall season is complete without the little "goose gifts" all over campus. We have a pond on campus and this time of year, the geese are very prevalent. When we go out for our walk we are constantly dodging the landmines they leave for us.

Hey, I could have taken a picture of the dead possum that was at the end of my driveway sticking his tongue out at me this morning. Carnage or poo, you decide...


  1. What the heck! Next time take a picture of the possum. No one will expect it. Life is real. We are real. Life is about sharing. Next time don't be so stingy! LOL!

    Your home and fall decorations look wonderful!

    See you Sunday! We can't wait!

  2. I love every single fall thing you've done! I know I'm not supposed to covet so I'll just shamelessly copy, or try to. :) I can't find a white pumpkin; I've looked several places but I guess they're gone already. Boo! blessings, marlene
