Thankful Thursday



Today I am thankful for the simple break in temperature.  That's right....it has been darn hot.  Unseasonably hot and now fall is, literally, right around the corner.  This barn/fence photo shows a bit of the dry, crunchy grass that has overtaken our area.  Even the leaves on the trees have protested and fallen to the ground.  

This weekend might be the perfect time for the inaugural pot of chili.


"Now Autumn's fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt."

Linking up with Theresa today....

  5. A gorgeous view. I'm a bit jealous of your cooling off and the fact that you can have a pot of chili. :) I'm kinda like those leaves....I feel like falling, but from the heat.

  9. Well, here we've had another stretch of 90s hazy, hot and humid. I'm not complaining. Warm Sept. I can take. Why? My memory is good. I know what Jan. and Feb. bring.
    Like that barn shot a lot.

  11. Pretty view! Our grass is pretty crunchy, too, and the ground is showing it's usual cracks...always makes me think it's going to split wide open. I am also loving the break in temperature!

  16. Your pic is gorgeous!
    I wish that you could have sent me some warm weather. It was unseasonably cold here this summer on the IL/WI border. I hate cold weather.

  21. I do love the shot, and boy, does chili sound good! It surely has been hot here, too, and am thankful for the break in the heat. Though today is still hot enough.

  22. It was a brutal start to school here in Massachusetts.Hotter than I have ever felt in 24 years of teaching….in the 90's and VERY humid. We are having a thunder storm right now that's supposed to break things up. So hard being in school without A/C. I feel for the kids (and the sweaty teachers).

  23. Are those donkeys plowing? We got a break too, but just from hot and dry to hot and muggy, with thunder and dry lightening.

    1. Inger, that is a small team of mules plowing a field. We have quite a few people in my area who keep this tradition alive.

  24. Beautiful rustic shot! I will be extremely grateful when our temperature breaks here in S CA. It's been crazy-hot!

  25. Very nice scene. I've seen a few of the trees around here with dry crunchy leaves as well from the hot/dry summer. We're having a burst of heat this weekend though so summer's not quite over here.

  30. Hi, Pretty girl...I just love your header...and I just noticed the mules..my grandpa had 2 mules just like these that pulled a big old board that they hauled stuff on. I remember riding it and thinking it was the most awesome thing, ever.
    hugs, bj
