Autumn Color

It's Thankful Thursday and I am overwhelmed by blessings, so my heart is in awe. I love Autumn, yes I'll just keep saying that! Here are some more beauties that are draped in gold.

Breckenridge's main plaza.
This Linden tree is in our back yard and so gold right now, but the colors aren't coming through. It reminds me of several trips to New England~it is so incredibly beautiful, but when you take photos they just don't show the depth of color. 
All around us the trees are changing and the leaves are beginning to drop.  Yesterday my two granddaughters made drawstring skirts for their American Girl dolls; it was so fun and easy that our time was over in about an hour.  We played Quirkle until their brothers were done with their wood working project.  Today, our other two granddaughters come over for the same project.  I'm not sure what this morning will encompass, it could be a drive or just working on Christmas presents(sorry girls, I'm not saying). One thing I'm very thankful for is that my heal feels normal today and I'm so thankful.  I am not one to just sit around the house doing nothing(unless I'm recovering from a bug or last winter's surgery), the idea of not being able to walk Hunter was not pleasing to me.  It might mean I'd get more sewing done and other projects, but I don't like being lazy. 
I hope your day is filled with gratitude and joy and that you are able to do something that you love.


  1. Hi Noreen! I share your frustration at the fact that our photos never seem to portray the gorgeous scenery we see. But I love those golden leaves!

    I have a linden and it's really not changing at all yet. Still waiting!
    Have a wonderful day :)

  2. Autumn has come in all her glory and she is beautiful! Thank you, Noreen, for the lovely photos.

  3. So pretty. Mom misses those colors. We don't see them in California

  4. Glad you are feeling better. We don't seem to have a lot of color changes this year so far.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. Noreen, Glad your foot is better. I loved reading about the sewing projects. I love you colorful tree photos. I have been loving looking for all the beauty this time of year...glad you have some too. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  6. Beautiful fall colors! We just don't see fall colors here, it's kind of sad! I haven't been around blogland this week due to my hospital stay and now Matthew's hospital stay, so I'm not sure what happened to your heal but I will be praying that your are feeling better and able to walk Hunter soon! Many blessings, Cindy xoxo

  7. So glad that your heel is feeling better ... although I must take exception to your comment about sitting and sewing being lazy. ;-) I'm sure Hunter is glad that his mama is able to get out and walk with him.

  8. Hello friend~ I am right with you. Nothing like feeling better to make us thankful. Sweet pictures. You have a blessed day!!

  9. Such beautiful pictures! We do not have change of seasons in central Florida, so I love seeing it from other places. I do enjoy bringing the colors of fall indoors. Nothing like autumn colors to warm the house.

  10. I'm not sure if my comment went through on your last post. What a lovely place to visit. I just love the trees. Read about your heal and glad it is better now. Sounds like a good time sewing and that the grandchildren are keeping you busy. Enjoy your weekend.
