This morning I awoke to my alarm at 7:30am. I looked out my bedroom window and the ground outside and in the fields behind my home were covered with Frost. I'ts the 1st of the season here and it was a crisp 38 degrees out then. Now it's a plaeasant 58 degrees with sunny blue skys dotted with white fluffy clouds. Autumn has come to my new Tennesean home here in Newport TN, (just and hour east of Knoxville), the trees are turning from green to brown, some have lost thier leaves and others are displaying some bright orange, red leaves. It is peaceful here on Lou Ellen St. with the birds outsde chirping in he trees and flitting to and from the feeders. I will go outside and finish trimming the hedges by my porch, cleaning my lopers to store for the spring and sweeping the cutting off the porch and into a bag for the city to pick up.
I'm thinking of supper today and feel like making chicken soup, Mmmmm! a nice way to warm up after spending a day outside. I'll post some pictures later after I finish cleaning up around the porch.
well ttyl all. off to do some garden work here. :)

It is so nice to have my "Purple Passion Flower" computer back home. Yesterday I found my programs and this morning I found my pictures Yeah! Memories! Here are a few to TBT (through back Thursday).

After spending the night in a cleaner hotel in Houston I met up with Nancy and we made our way into galveston which was only an hour away. She showed us around town a bit, we took a ferry ride across the bay and then made our way to the beach house.... The week was perfect despite the rain, we were at the beach. I enjoyed my weeks stay at the Beach House, did a little sight seeing and a lot of just hanging out on the deck or in the house relaxing while the kids did their own thing... the week went fast and before you knew it - it was time to head home.
The drive home was uneventful, I had decided to take the coastal route instead of going back up toward Houston and except for the ferry ride. I waited almost an hour to get on the busy ferry and when on the ferry broke down so all the cars, including me, had to back off and wait for another ferry taking another hour of waiting. finally I was on my way. the skies were clear with no hint of rain the entire trip home. I ddn't make a lot of stops along the way because of the heat. it was around 96 degrees out all the way home. It took me two overnight stays before I arrived home in Newport TN around 10pm on Wed eve. So glad to be home and the bonus was 78 degrees out. how nice! It was and adventure and I enjoyed it immense, so now back to the real world.... and a whole lot of summer fun to share with you.
