Mother Nature's Fall Decorations

Mother Nature has just begun to share her beautiful fall decorations with us here in this part of NC. The beautiful colors are starting to peek out in several places.

Unfortunately, to go along with the beautiful scenery, the seasonal flu bugs have hit our home. My son has been home from school with Bronchitis since the end of last week. My plans for starting "Tuesdays with Dorie" will be put on hold until next week because I am enjoying some rare moments of hugging my "baby" during this time. You know how 11 yr. olds are...most of the time they don't want anything to do with Mom hugging them; but when they are really sick, they don't seem to mind it. ;) Hopefully he will be able to return to school tomorrow. We were aiming for today but that didn't happen.

These pictures were taken down by the river about 2 1/2 miles from our home. I took them yesterday while waiting for the pharmacy to fill my son's prescriptions. The news reports that prime viewing time for the rich, bright colors will be in about two weeks. I sure hope so!

In the meantime, here's what it looks like here:

Oh, so sorry you have kiddos that aren't feeling good! It makes it extra hard on us mommies when kids are sick!

Your fall photos look amazing! West Texas looks nothing like that in the fall!

Thanks, ladies!!

It is so hard when the kids are home sick..especially when we have days like this and they want so badly to play but they just don't feel like doing anything.

So pretty! We are about 2-3 weeks after you, so I can't wait for the colors!
