Autumn Leaves

I was reading poems to my granddaughter last night  and just loved this one.
I know that Autumn is just about over with and the leaves are gone now,
but I hope you enjoy it anyway

Autumn Leaves
by Aileen Fisher
 
One of the nicest beds I know isn't a bed of soft white snow,
isn't a bed of cool green grass after the noisy mowers pass,
isn't a bed of yellow hay making me itch for half a day--
but autumn leaves in a pile that high deep, and smelling like fall,
and dry.
That's the bed where I like to lie and watch the flutters go by.

I could tell she enjoyed all the poems that I read to her because of the smile on her face as I read them.

Now on a different note earlier yesterday my granddaughter was spending some quality time with her Auntie Kay and here are a few pictures that I got of them together.

Making silly faces

not sure what Sharlee was doing

Sharlee and Auntie Kay

Auntie Kay lets Sharlee play games on her phone.
 
Well I need to get my butt in gear and get my Thanksgiving shopping done today so I can do my cleaning and preping tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!!
I am so thankful for a wonderful family!!!!
Happy Stitching
