My new bike looks just like this; just no basket of flowers; no bottle of wine in the back rack.

The crisp cool air, the Goldenrod in the ditches, and the Black-Eyed Susans. That anticipation that "sweater weather" will arrive soon.
The fruit trees in the yard will go dormant for the year; already the fig trees have lost their leaves. The ripe, heavy fruit on the citrus trees is beginning to show tinges of orange!
Dratted squirrels ate ALL the persimmons; but I wish them the joy of them. Squirrels have to eat, too.
The bike trails where are I ride, mostly Rails to Trails, are lush with the first glow of autumn. Deer grazing, unafraid, just off the trail; once, a rattlesnake sunning itself on the bike path. Just steered clear, and wished her well.
It is almost time to cook up my yearly extra large batch of vegan gingerbread. This recipe uses a ton of fresh, grated ginger root, and just the right amount of spice. I make extra to give to friends, and also secret serving size portions in the freezer for later. Delicious on a chilly afternoon with a cup of hot tea. Wonderful!
Isn't life just so full of delightful small pleasures? How can every day not bring numerous opportunities for experiencing beauty, love, joy, gratitude?
Wishing all of you the pleasures of the season as the year winds to a close --and a bright new year that will come close on its heels.
To squeeze every bit of joy and beauty out every single moment of every single day!
Ride my new bike as often and as far as possible!
Enjoy every moment of every day!
I live in sunny Florida, and am so grateful for the fabulous weather here! I have a very large yard (approx. 1 acre), and it is filled with flowering bushes and fruit trees. It is like a sanctuary; my private garden of Eden.
I have two elderly rescue dogs that I adore. I spoil them terribly.
I am addicted to audiobooks and have a very large collection of them. My preferred genre is Fantasy Fiction.
I have distinct leanings toward the Wiccan version of spirituality.
I am probably the happiest, most content person I know!
I have so much to be grateful for in my life. I feel like I am living in a sea of bounty, and daily count the many wondrous blessings that the universe had bestowed upon me.
LIFE IS GOOD!
