Tuesday, I swept a lot of dried leaves off the porch. As you can see from the photo up there, a few more had fallen by the time I got home yesterday, along with a few acorns or hickory nuts or ... whatever they are. I do love the color of fall. I'm a colorful person and I enjoy watching the leaves change. Seeing the pretty reds and yellows made me want to get my camera out.
Last Saturday, our Library had their Fall festival which includes pony rides and a used book sale. Stephen goes for the horses, of course. I love the used books and arts and crafts. We've been doing this since he was about five or six. The owners of the horses saw us coming and shouted, "There's Stephen! We were hoping y'all would make it!" I couldn't believe they remembered us by name ... then again, it's hard to forget Stephen. ;-) We paid for three rides and he enjoyed every one of them. Come to find out, they own a ranch close by and the lady has worked with special needs children at the Special Equestrians Foundation,which I've been trying to get him into for the last few years. The reason he hasn't been yet is because they send you a stack of papers as thick as War And Peace to have signed by every doctor and physical therapist he's ever seen. I've gotten about half way through that paperwork. You all know what a procrastinator I am, plus, I suffer severely from adult ADD, so it may never happen. The nice lady who owns the ranch also gives riding lessons! Cool, right? We have her card, she says never mind the mile-high paperwork, just bring him. Upon hearing this, he clapped his hands, very happily. That means, YAY! in Stephen language.
So it's time I sign off and get started on housework. =) Y'all take care!
