Change is gonna do me good

“It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes it will”

Sam Cooke

(the new fall crop of pumpkins and gourds / Julie Cook / 2014)

September 22, 2014
A new day to a new week and the first day of a new season.
Happy Fall!!
Never mind that someone forgot to tell the thermometer.
Never mind that someone forgot to tell the temperature.
Never mind that someone forgot to tell the sun.
Never mind that someone forgot to tell the humidity.

Probably shouldn’t be putting out new pumpkins to sit and bake in 87แต’ heat.
Did I not read somewhere that this week is going to “cool” down?
Cool down.
Upper 70s.
Oooooo. . .ahhhhhhh

Cool is a relative word is it not?
A state of mind really.
And it is a state that I’m very ready to experience.

Yes change is good.
Of course any sort of change can be difficult, as well as dreaded- – –
or – – –
It can be anticipated and welcomed.

And in this case I think it is certainly welcome.
So yes, change is a coming and it’s gonna do me good.

    Mid-high sixties here by day Julie, but down to 40 overnight – frost warning light went on briefly in the car this morning!

    Summer is slipping away here in Oregon Julie. It’s bittersweet for me to see fall arrive.

    I do love your exotic squash and Sam Cooke!

    • the more exotic seems the better as far as these “pumpkin / gourds” are concerned!! I’m loving the textures and colors!!
      I know the wet cold weather will be advancing Debra but think of all those beautiful colors you’re soon to be privy to!! Savor the brilliance before having to hunker down as it were!
      Blessings from Georgia—Julie

  3. Today is the last day of summer and I’m never sad to see it go! I’m so looking forward to the autumnal equinox tomorrow and what it will bring, at least at some time. Like yours our area is not saying that but I know that the day is coming when fall will get under way with its crisp cool days and chilly nights. I can hardly wait. Thanks for the preview! Hugs, N ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

  4. Beautiful pictures, these are the same ones I was telling you about, all the different sizes, shapes, textures and colors!

  5. I’m sorry about my earlier comment. Today was the autumnal equinox. I looked it up weeks ago and could have sworn it was on the 23rd this year. But hey I’ve been wrong before. Thanks for keeping me on my toes. Love and hugs, N ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

    Gorgeous gourds! Hope it cools down for you soon! ๐Ÿ™‚ Laura

    • Hi Laura–thanks—it has cooled down considerably since Sunday. About a 10 degree difference in highs and the low did dip into the 50’s—plus the humidity has thankfully dissipated—hallelujah!!!!
      Wooohoooo-all ready for Fall!
