Never get tired

I never get tired of deer in my yard, of how they just blink blankly at me while I awe at them. I never get tired of searching the skies for some special surprise~ a red-tailed hawk, clouds scattered like feathers, hot-air balloons roaming at dawn.
I never get tired of watching the old Chevys putter around town. I covet them, especially the one that is colored Robin's Egg blue.  And I never get tired of Fall or Halloween, or the excitment this time of year brings to the little faces around me. Together we relish in the cozy smell of burning wood, crispy leaves, pumpkin spice and caramel apples, sending me into a feverish frenzy of baking, decorating, and buying scarves I don't need.  We are in earth's annual call to huddle close and celebrate the last gifts she has to bring before she goes quiet for the winter. May I never tire of or take these gifts for granted :).

Much love to you this Friday



  1. oh YES! i so hear this.

    i wish we had deer in our yard....the deer-fencing makes them a very rare treat indeed...although we sometimes see their magical hoofprints...

    the call to huddle...so lovely. xo

    ps. how can you not love a truck that colour?!?

  2. oh how i love this time of year as well! and i love your gratitude for all of it...i can feel it in your words. enjoy...

  3. oh, can't believe I miss fall and its glory this year. I've been complaining about fall and winter for years, and the first time around that I won't be experiencing it, and I fail miserably at it. be careful what you wish for...

  4. Great post!!! I love Halloween!


  5. Wow! Deer in your yard! I love that you have that, and I am just a tad bit envious, too. They look so tame.
    I Hope you are well MJ! A big hug to you.

  6. amen sister

    ps deer in your yard...you are blessed!
