Autumn Everywhere

Fresh kettle corn.  Hot homemade vegetable soup.  Freshly baked bread warm and smothered with butter and apple butter.  Apple cider and old fashioned sassafras root beer.  Maple syrup and maple sugar candy.  Roasting chestnuts and peanuts.  The sounds and smells of autumn everywhere.

It could mean only one thing.

The Annual Springs Pa. Folk Festival!

We enjoyed walking the path through the woods and past all the old and historic reenactments and points of interest from days gone by.

LIKE A MAGNET....  Summer is drawn to any and all animals.

  But then again... Look at that face.  
I'm drawn to these sweet little guys myself.  Summer giggled when it squatted to pee.

The weather was perfect...  with a light rain starting just before we exited the festival.

And then...  heavier rains.  

Heading for home...  Just in time.

Dear Diary,

I remember days...  oh so very long ago...  when mom said, "No jumping on the furniture, Gracie!"   I say this now, because I think it's cute the way she drops whatever she is doing to get down onto the floor on her hands and knees to gently lift me onto the chair or the couch or whatever I happen to want to jump onto but can't.  Seriously, she never means what she says.    Gracie.


  1. Oh Gracie, you have your humans trained well. The festival looks so fun. And your delicious fall words ALMOST make me love fall again!!I think Summer will be a vet when she grows up.

  2. What a fun day for y'all. You are making me hungry with all that talking about food. It was nice that the rain held off a bit for you. Hey, send some of that stuff over to us!

    Gracie, you keep working it, Hon. It works, lol.

  3. Its neat that in your family no matter what the season, Summer is always there :)

    Looked like fun times for all. We're going to get out and do some fall things here with family; looking forward to it.

    Gracie, you have Bobbi wrapped around your little paw. Just don't' get too smug about it, okay??


  4. Oh, that looks like fun! I think Ginny may be right...Summer will be a Vet when she grows up. Glad the rain held off so you could enjoy the sights.
    Gracie, You look very comfy. I wish you all a nice weekend with lots of love.

  5. You and your Gracie, so sweet to see how very much you love each other. And I must confess to enlarging the pictures. The girls are so lovely. I wish I lived close by so I could come and hang out with them. You are so blessed.



Cool theaters with heaps of junk food is where you want to be on hot summer days (when you're not in the pool of course). If you ...
