Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!

Well summer is gone and now my favorite time of year is here. I love everything about Fall. My pumpkin patch is full of pumpkins even though I had doubts earlier from the bad weather.My decorative gourds are decorating the porches and the flowers are brilliant in their blooms. I love all of the wonderful fall treats to munch on as well. I find myself spending more time outside enjoying the pleasant weather and the beautiful sunsets in the afternoons. I have been tagged by Linda at Somewhere in Time. Go visit her, she is just a lovely person. So here goes Linda.
1.Where was I ten years ago?..... I was in a small town, in a neighborhood that had turned gang ridden and drug infested, constantly dreaming and praying for a country place so far, far away. But my life was sweet. At that time, our children were still small and the joys of motherhood masked all the unpleasantness outside .
2. What is on my "TO Do List" today? .... move some of my potted plants into the greenhouse because the night air is getting too chilly for them. And as always....spend the day embroidering!
3.What would I do if I were a billionaire? ....Give, give, give, ...live, live, live...! I would give and help out every one I know, send my children to the colleges they want to go and make sure their future is secure, put a big tall fence around our property to protect my pets from predators and start raising the sheep I want and also open up my antique/quilt and embroidery shop. Go to Montana to adopt wild mustangs!!
4. Five places I have lived.......well I have lived in Texas all of my life. I have floated from town to town through the years due to college, marriage. And now I have settled here.... in heaven on earth!
5. Bad Habits... I worry too much. I am a Christian and I know I am supposed to let God take control, but I still worry. That is one of my "new year birthday" resolutions, to trust God and to stop worrying.
Well, I think that is enough of hearing about me, I hope all of you have a wonderful fall weekend!

Always nice to hear someone who loves where they are in life. I like your answers, your pumpkin patch seems to be calling for some pictures to be posted and yes if we had a wad of money - the biggest joy would be in giving - I do like the high fence idea though!

Hello Kathleen- I've missed you!! I've had lots of chores keeping me away from my computer lately, so we have a lot of catching up to do! :)
I envy your pumpkins... I just don't think mine will make it- we put them out too late. Fall is by far my favorite time of year... cool mornings, crisp blue sky, apple butter, football... life doesn't get any better than that! LOL
I'm with Linda Sue- pumpkin patch pictures please! (try saying that 3 times real fast!! tee hee)
