Fall Nature Walk & Some Random Notes

Fall Nature Walk & Some Random Notes

It was a beautiful fall day on Sunday. So, we bundled up a bit and went on a fall nature walk. We live near a nature center, even though we’re very close to the city, too. Even though the weather has been weird, we have still been blessed with a bit of fall to enjoy …

Hello, ducks!

My favorite leaf, yellow with just a bit of red! So pretty!

My son is feeling better, but he is still not 100% … I think it was good for him to be outdoors for a bit anyway …

We even found some purple …

This was taken in our yard while my husband raked … I thought it turned out cute. My preschooler in her Little House bonnet with wild flowers!

Today, it’s raining … It was the perfect day to make homemade chicken-wild rice soup! I tripled the recipe, so that I had enough to share it with two families from our parish who just had babies. I will be making deliveries later today.
I also gave an easy muffin recipe a try. All you do is combine a box of spice or carrot cake mix and a 15-oz. can of pumpkin. Bake as directed on the box. They’re still cooling, so I haven’t tried them, yet, but my house smells wonderful right now! I’m on my way to the kitchen to see how they taste and hopefully knit for awhile before I have to pick up my daughter from school!

  1. Great pictures. Your kids are so dern cute! That soup sounds yummy. I just got back from the commissary and it is so muggy/humid today I almost dropped to the ground. I can't stand the sweltering heat. ANd, I get to bake today!!! I usually love baking, but it's too hot and I'm scared to make it warmer in the house.

  2. So nice to see that someone got a bit of fall color this year! Ours didn't get a chance to develop.

    Glad to hear kiddos are on the mend and well enough to enjoy the fall weather.

  3. pretty, pretty pictures sarah. all those leaves are such lovely colors! we don't see enough red ones still on the trees around these parts. mostly yellow.
    your kids are all so darlin'!

  4. What a lovely day! Did you sew the Little House bonnet, Violet made hers from a pattern in Sewing With Saint Anne, they're fun to sew up 🙂 Many blessings!
