Fall Is Somewhere

Fall is somewhere
not here.

I have one foot in summer
the other in fall.

Today it was 98 degrees in my back yard.

I feel a lot like my fruit bowl looks!

All mixed up!!!

 It may feel like summer
I have had many reminders that it
Sweet September!

Oh my goodness ! Petra turned 4
became a baker and party planner
with the help of her Easy Bake Oven!!!

Dax started kindergarden
he told me the things he really likes
his lunch and three recesses.

To the delight of my heart the sound of the high school marching band
has been drifting into my back yard!
Many years ago I marched to the rhythm of the band.

I have been up very late gazing at the moon.
It has been rising around midnight.

Oh what beauty!!
The lovely golden color of the harvest
now the planet Jupiter is brightly shining to the right of it in the southeastern sky!

coconut, bananas, cantaloupe, avocados and oranges

Living in this mixed up season
for the heat
has been filled with such wonder
 that so works for me!!


I am linking to Outdoor Wednesday.



  1. such a wonderful description of what is taking place in your "neck of the woods" and alot of the same here. I too can hear the whistle blowing as the boy are practicing for the Friday night game. We had a taste of Fall, the cool crisp air, but our friend here in the South, "Mr. Humidity" has crept back in the door. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I am with you Dottie.Every one is trying so hard to rush fall and we are not even half through Sept. I don't want fall yet. Go away come another day. Richard from My Old Historic house.

  3. Oooh thats hot Dottie!
    I know you are enjoying your summer!
    Easy Bake Oven? Oh I had one years was the beginning of a life-long love of baking!!
    Love your sweet images.
    Hugs to you xo

  4. I love a big bowl full of fruit and veggies! I have a perfect avocado right now...need to make some guacamole! We were so thrilled to see the full moon over the ocean this week! It was amazing! ♥

  5. Yes you are right this month does seem to be a combination of things. Our weather here is the same, one day 100 and the next 78; it does tend to confuse one.(-:

  6. Good morning is sending cool thoughts your way. It has been crazy hot down South this year....but fall is right on the "heels" of summer.

    Stay well......beautiful friend.


  7. Hi Dottie,
    What cuties! I am glad everyone enjoyed the meatloaf! :)

  8. I visited Tanna today and looked at her comments. I read yours and wanted to visit.

    Another beautiful lady from Texas.

    I know what you mean - GA - in the 80's but I can feel fall is coming!

    I love fall.

    Did you get some rain I hope? I have a lot of friends from Texas here.


  9. This weather is hot one minute and cool the next.....(I vote for hot) Oh well, nothing I can do about it! I do like sleeping with the windows up. I just sleep so good!

  10. It is hot here...I just keep visualizing how nice it is going to be!

  11. The birthday girl looks very happy with her cake :-)
    Love the moon shot, Dottie!
    Hope your weather settles down soon so you can enjoy the delights of Autumn.
    Thanks for linking up to LACE this week!
    God bless you..Trish

  12. I too dream of is in the 90's here as well! Your wee ones are adorable as was your post!!
