Friday, already? 😉
With the holiday on Monday, the week seemed to fly; didn’t it?
For this edition of Friday Favorites, I have a fall-ish illustration from a vintage children’s book.
I’ll bet you can still remember crunching through the autumn leaves when you were a kid, and maybe even choosing a few pretty ones to take into the house with you!
Speaking of being young…..
Here’s a quote with a youthful theme . . .
“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”
Have a super special weekend, Kids!
See ya Monday 🙂
What a sweet illustration! Makes me want to jump on a pile of leaves right now.
O Brother…Here is my memory of piles of leaves.
My uncle lived in Long Beach, Indiana.
There were TONS of Oak Trees.
I was about 4. My cousin Frank was about 8.
We were raking leaves in his side yard then jumping in the piles.
I went running through a huge pile and ended up at the end of the driveway.
I guess, I was heading for the house. I came around a line of cars that were parked in the drive way out to the road.
AHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I was screaming there was a LION…HELP!!!!
I remember it vividly.
It was a St. Bernard.
I think that was the last time I played in the leaves.
Thanks for another great memory that you have evoked from my childhood ~lol~
Have a great weekend.
The best part of grandkids is I get to relive my youth. I get to play in the leaves, snow and have picnics. That illustration is so beautiful.
It actually feels like fall today. It is overcast and cool about 65 degrees today. Fall is my favorite time of the year and I love the leaves. Soon the dog events will be starting and Kouga and I will be attending some of these while Scott is working.
I’m trying to keep my brain young with college classes, but sometimes I think I have reached capacity. With 13 credit hours this semister my brain is truly getting a workout. I love my marketing and management classes. They are my favorites so far.
Have a great weekend everyone.
I love to watch the leaves blowing on the road. They look like they are dancing! Happy weekend!
Hi Crystal! I don’t think I ever grew up because I still enjoy making piles and sloshing through the leaves! I love the sound and the smell of them…and I always collect a few to bring inside. I have a little red maple leaf from last year that I just tucked in the cabinet…and it dried perfectly, and kept it’s color too! Oh autumn, I just love you! xo Paulette
Drats! I thought I’d be the first one to catch Monday’s post! xo Paulette
