Six word Saturday


Through Autumn’s golden gown we used….


…to kick our way.  You always loved this time of year.”  Was ever there a more haunting Autumn anthem?  The Moody Blues song always echoes in my head as the season draws to its close.  Don’t you love the gleeful expression of the guy hoovering up the leaves, and that little intent group by the pond?  There’s so much to love about this life.

I’m putting the miseries firmly behind me and having one more flurry with Verena’s Festival of Leaves.  It’s a little drab and grey here today but there’s always joy to be found.  This afternoon I shall be celebrating a 70th with a rather special gent. (no, not mine!)  Make the most of your weekend, won’t you, and don’t forget to share six words.



    1. I last saw him surrounded by grandkids. He was having a whale of a time, and so were they 🙂 🙂 Thanks, Yvette. Sun’s just rising, reluctantly, on another Saturday here. Wishing you a good one!

  1. Such gorgeous fall colours you still have Jo. Ours are long since gone but we have been so lucky with warm temperatures till now. Well warm by Canadian standards. hope you had a wonderful celebration.


    1. I had a superb afternoon, thanks, Sue! Friends I hadn’t seen for years and a lovely atmosphere. 🙂 My stepsister flew back to Calgary on Friday and she couldn’t believe the predicted temperatures.


  2. The path to my front door is almost knee-deep in lovely crisp leaves and I’m leaving them there as I secretly love to swish my feet through them as I did as a child. Plus they are lovely to look at – from indoors! The promised rain today may make them a sodden mass but I’ll risk itl Your positive attitude is a real antidote to Sunday blues, so yes do enjoy your celebrations this afternoon.

      1. We’ve locked ourselves away in air conditioning for most of the weekend, feels as though we’ve missed spring and launched straight into summer. I hope things don’t get too cold and miserable over winter.
