It is pleasant to walk again!


The greatest thing about fall is the cooler weather.  D H and I walked the beach today and I commented on how pleasant it was to walk without a coat on.  We didn’t see many birds however the blue jay, ducks, seagulls and geese were active.  We even caught a glimpse of the cormorant. 

The foliage is just starting to change.  The sumach is turning red and the golden rod is a blazing yellow.  The leaves are still green and haven’t fallen off the trees so I couldn’t kick them around.

I so missed walking when the weather was hot and sticky.  It took my breath away.  The sun was so bright I needed sunscreen.  I am also anxious to do some baking since the house has also cooled down.  This a perfect weekend to consider making my banana cake as well apple crisp.

Thanks to my son-in-law P for celebrating his birthday so I can bake him a cake.  The nieces are looking forward to helping out.  They just love Birthday parties. It is also a chance for the family to get together.

Today is the first full day of autumn and I hope everyone enjoys it.


  1. I love how you describe Autumn,it is my fave season.Glad you had a nice walk and I hope that baking tastes yummy and the party goes well

  2. I am glad that you and the hubby had an enjoyable stroll. The weather is certainly lovely today! Enjoy your baking for your son-in-law's birthday, and also the help from the kids! AND apple crisp sounds delightful. Apple crisp, and hot apple cider are two of my favs in the fall.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog post. I guess my train would go to the New England states this fall if I could get my wish!

    Happy Saturday!

  3. It *is* nice to be able to be outside without fear of heat stroke, or something, isn't it? I've been out a few times this week. Around here, I still have to get out in the morning for an actual workout, because it's not exactly cool just yet, but a month ago, there was no time of day that seemed *safe* much less *comfortable*!

  4. Sounds like a nice weekend. I love apple crisp and banana bread but have not had any for a long time. I will have to wait till my kitchen also cools to start baking some of these special treats.
