“This was one of my favorite books when I was growing up,” my mom told me many years ago when she gave me a copy of Anne of Green Gables. It quickly became a favorite of mine, too. I loved reading about the imaginative Anne Shirley and her life on the farm with Marilla and Matthew. It was one of those books I couldn’t put down and didn’t want to end.
But it did have a wonderful ending with another great quote—“God’s in His heaven, all’s right with the world.” I read and reread the book several times, finding out much later that there were actually sequels to the book. But I always liked the first book best, and when I saw this quote about October from the book, it made me want to read it again!
I can just imagine what Anne would enjoy about the month of October—the beautiful colors, the cool autumn air, the gently falling leaves. There is beauty in every season, and the beauty is especially vibrant in October! Hope you find many things to enjoy about your October, too! 🙂
God has made everything beautiful for its own time. ECCLESIASTES 3:11 NLT

Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.—WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT
Hope you are enjoying the outdoor beauty and rich colors, the cooler autumn weather, and all the fun things autumn brings! Some of my favorite things about Fall are pumpkins, colorful leaves, maple-scented candles, apple cider and donuts, warm sweaters, and the coziness of home. What are some of your favorites?

When the Year from fruitful labor turns to rest…Founts of warmth and comfort in my being flow….
–C.B. Galbreath, “Autumn Afternoon”
Some of my favorite things about autumn are apples and apple cider–and those freshly-made donuts you can buy at some cider mills! But freshly-picked apples are always a treat, and these lovely rustic organic apples come from my friend Alisa’s farm…from a tree planted long ago by her Grandpa and enjoyed every year when autumn comes around.
Happy Autumn to you!
Imagine my surprise when I went for a walk in a quiet wooded area recently and saw this sweet little creature! It looked like a baby bird, but it was so big…probably at least a foot tall. I took some pictures with my i-Phone…
I thought it might be either a baby hawk or an eagle–I’ve seen eagles flying in the area before–and those feet really looked like eagle feet to me. The baby didn’t look or seem injured in any way. I didn’t know if it had fallen from a nest or why it was there. Hopefully the mama was close by. The closest I got to the baby bird was about five feet. Later on, I googled “baby eagle photos” and found a variety of different–looking baby eagles…some had yellow beaks, but some had beaks like this one…and the same coloring.
The baby bird wasn’t there when I checked back. Hopefully the baby is with mama bird.
So what do you think–could this be a baby eagle? Do any of you know anything about eagles?
