Fall is on the way!

For the first time this year, I pulled out a sweater!

By 1 pm I was peeling it off, but I think it has signaled the feel of Fall!

We’ve been picking some garden goodies over here at our homestead. The beans were a surprise, and the flowers a delight! 💐


Enjoy this amazing weather while it’s here!


Just a friendly reminder to check out our other channels if you haven’t popped over!

I’m building my YouTube channel, and welcome any new friends! 📺


In case you need an anti-stress remedy, I recently shared some fascinating info on holy basil. 🌿 Holy Basil for Anxiety 🌿

Thanks for coming!

Hope you meet a new friend today!
