~It's Here, It's Here, Fall is finally here~

Written by Sue, Monday, September  27, 2021 ~   Sunny, cool, crisp, gorgeous fall day, 70's

 Fall has finally arrived both on the calendar and weather wise, and I am one happy camper! Have I mentioned that fall is my favorite season, and that Christmas is my favorite holiday, withThanksgiving and  Easter being my favorite celebrations!  Well, that just about covers everything except birthdays. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

I didn't decorate for fall last year, we were in the middle of this pandemic, and on lockdown, I just wasn't in the groove of things, however by Christmas I had picked up!  This year is different I decided I wasn't going to let a virus, mess my enjoyment of  the many beautiful seasons, especially fall , a season of Thanksgiving to count my many blessings. I especially  love the sights, smells and taste of fall, especially apples and cinnamon together. 

I went full force with my decorating,  I am almost finished with the inside, this is the foyer, one of my favorite places to decorate,  it is the first place you see as you enter our home.  First time putting up a fall 6ft. tree. 

Do you remember the little 'blessings jars' that were so popular a few years ago, I still have mine and continue to fill them, this is my fall blessings/thanksgiving jar! I love to open the jar and read the notes, written, it is  always a reminder of the faithfulness of God and how he cares so much for us!

Other news around the farmhouse,..

 I love to have plants placed around the house, but for some reasons these plants were left to sit in the window seat all  summer, I guess they didn't get the memo 'to social distance"! they looked leggy and root 
bound too!

 This is what  root bound  looks like, I divided the plants and cut off extra roots, so they could breath, I almost thought I heard an AHH! maybe it  was me! Along with those I had rooted in a vase above my sink I soon had everyone situated.Would you believe most of theses plants started with just two plants!

After repotting,pruning, and watering,  I cleaned and shined the leaves with coconut oil, very heathy for plants, oil  helps with dust accumulating and wards off pests, plus it gives a beautiful shine! Just in case some might be wondering, it doesn't take much time to shine the leaves,  just patience.  The plants have found new places to reside, and are quite happy!

A potted plant, that you created,  makes a wonderful gift for a friend, a person who is ill, or someone who  just needs some cheering up! So here is a plant just for you, enjoy your day!😍

Just some simple happenings around the farmhouse today, May your days be filled with many continued blessings!

How delightful to have really gotten into Autumn decorating!!! Beautiful...

I finally did too! But not nearly as much as you. I actually have less of all decorations now. It's just the way that life progressed. To each, their own. -smile- But I really love, love, love yours!!!!!! Thank you for sharing.

Yes, we all need to try to live in our own life 'bubble,' and do not let all the horrrrrrrors of what is going on in our Country, and in parts of the world, defeat us. I do so most of the time. But today, I just had to share Information.

Anyway, Happy Autumn!!!!! May we all enjoy every moment of it!!!!

Good morning, my FFF! (Fellow Fall Fanatic, that is. 😊) Your home looks so beautiful and festive! I'm glad you felt celebratory this year.

So even though we're FFFs together, I do not share your green thumb. (Mine is very black.) But I will enjoy your lovely plants and they do make a home looks so cheerful and alive!

Happy Fall! (Can you believe it's nearly October already?!)

Edna B said...

I'm just now getting caught up on your posts. Wow, your plants look beautiful! And all those jars of food in your pantry are awesome! Reminds me of my eldest daughter. She cans a lot of veggies and jams, etc. She's always busy. I love your Fall tree. I've never heard of putting one up, but I do love the idea of it. It's quite beautiful. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Barb said...

Hi Sue! I just love seeing your foyer during Autumn, Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's always so beautiful!

I have never used coconut oil to clean my plants! I have one that I shine with a damp cloth, but I will use coconut oil from now on.

Enjoy your beautiful weather, Sue!

Theresa said...

Beautiful, I need to do some repotting too. What a great idea to gift some plants. Enjoy your day dear friend. Hugs.

Deanna Rabe said...

Aren't plants fun? Mine need to be dusted, I'm sure!

I love fall and I agree with you, Sue, that we need to celebrate and not worry!

I didn't realize you were blogging again! I'm happy to see it!
