Yesterday, was a day of celebrations. First, we celebrated the first day of autumn and hopefully, the end of very hot summer. These salvia did so well (grown from seed) this year given the weather.

This past week we have enjoyed daytime highs in the 70's and overnight lows have been in the 40's. But, we are headed for 90's again next week. Boo!!!

And so, we have begun our decorating for Fall. These pumpkins are some of the ones that Joye grew this year. As you can see, in the next pumpkin picture, she had a very LARGE one! :)

Not only did we celebrate the beginning of Fall but we also celebrated Joye and Hope's birthday.

 We went out for a late lunch at our favorite restaurant, "The Iron Skillet". Delicious as always. Then, later that day we enjoyed a 4 layer Gingerbread cake with buttercream frosting. 

All in all, it was a very nice day. And, it brought to mind this quote. "I just find myself happy with the simple things. Appreciating the blessings God gave me."
