Is it Fall?

I think it might actually be fall here in Texas. When I woke up this morning, our temperature in the house was below the air conditioning setting. This is a big clue that we are headed toward fall here in Texas.

Now that doesn't mean that our fall is anything like the fall that I grew up with on the East Coast. Here's what our turning leaves look like:

Our leaves get brown and crunchy. That's it. While our leaves are ugly, we do have some pretty bushes in the front of our house that get nice berries.

It was nice and cool in the evening, so we took a walk down our road.

The dogs get frisky when it drops below 90 degrees. They are old enough that they really notice the heat. Anna enjoys walking to see our neighbors and our neighbors' animals. We stopped at her favorite neighbor, Miss T's.

Miss T has lots of animals, so it is like our very own zoo. We visited with the dogs (5), cats, birds, chickens, ducks, and horses. Great fun!

We also let Anna go to the Pumpkin Patch in town and pick out a pumpkin. She told us she wanted a "little Pumpkin." Here's her choice:

We'll have to get a bigger one to carve, but the little one is amusing for now.

Oh, yes, knitting, you ask? Well, I'm working on Klara. I have about 1/3 of the first sleeve complete. I might actually cut out about 3 inches, not 2 as planned. I'm not sure yet!
