I don't know if you've experienced Fall in Texas before, but true Fall doesn't happen here very often. The old Texas proverb says, "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes." If you're expecting four regular seasons, you're probably the wrong place. It can be 80 on Christmas and 20 on New Years. For this reason, we don't really expect all that comes with Fall to last around these parts. So when we actually had the first changing of leaves since I can remember, I jumped in the Jeep with my camera.
This is just a hop skip and a jump from where we live, and I think it's the road dreams are made of. It's storybook. I can imagine Little Red Riding Hood. I can imagine singing "Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother's house we go" and the road going on and on for hours.
Isn't that fiery orange gorgeous? I can just imagine throwing a picnic in the middle of a nature walk.
I have one more fall picture I want to capture, but traffic has prevented me from attempting it since it's just off a two lane highway with a 70 mph speed limit, but I'm going to attempt it tomorrow before the cold weather and precipitation comes. I'll post it if I can get it. Until then, here's one more.
When I saw this dilapidated barn, all I could think was that if I closed on this property, I would get to work right away putting it back together again. I would be filling it full of Howdy Honey goods for a barn sale. That is a dream that makes my heart go two forty six.
I could hang this new sign I painted up, and it wouldn't just be some city slicker thing. Not that there's anything wrong with that. City Mouse and Country Mouse alike can hang it up. I just put it in the Howdy Honey Etsy Shop.
For now, it's a dream. There is a season for everything. For me, this is the season of dreaming. What are you dreaming about?
Keep up, Honey!
