Colorful leaves

My sister in law is the greatest! She has a wonderful and beautiful way with the written word, me, not so much! Kathy can transport you with her letters that is makes you feel like you are right there with her. Makes me have a love/hate with the way she writes. Why can't I spend some time with the blog and write something very profound??? Well, it's not me, there it is! Kathy forgive me for the love/hate comment!! I do love you!
So with all of that out of the way, fall has arrived and like summer it has just came, BAM, it's here! Trees are turning such beautiful colors, the reds are so intense and yellows are so sunny! Makes me fell bad that the colors are going to be gone by mid October.
Tonight on our way out to have the truck worked on person's house, we saw wild turkeys, Sand hill cranes, and geese, all within a 3 mile area. Wild life is abundant around here right now. We saw no deer, but that's okay. Well, that's all from the northwoods, blessings, my friends!

Winter is rough for me, long dark hours and the boredom you can cut with a knife. This year I hope will be different as I joined the fitness center and maybe the boredom can be kept at bay!
So I signed up for a week without sugar, it's going okay, not the best. Had a piece of cake last night after Bible study and I made it all day with any sugary treat, man that stunk! I have been toying with the idea of giving up sugar, but this commitment has made me realize how much I eat during the day without knowledge!
I have a box of apples to tackle and make some no sugar applesauce. So, off to work I go! Blessings!
