Autumn is coming

I can't believe it's Labor day weekend? Where did the summer go? School has started and we had our 1st big football game last night.(unfortunately is got pretty much rained out)I've never been a big game watcher but my 2 oldest started going last year and now it's mandatory around here.It is fun to see all the kids (and parents!)and the way they paint themselves up with the school colors.This town has always been big on that team spirit stuff.
This is my favorite time of the year and I usually start putting out my fall decorations around now.Well,ok truthfully I've already started but as I've been hopping around other blogs I see I'm not the only one that gets started early!
I just love the warmth of the colors and all the homey smells.I've had this recipe for crock pot apple butter that I've wanted to try for a few years now I think I might give it a go this weekend.The hubby is working all day today and I have a ton of cleaning to do but it looks pretty easy.I want to get the house all straightened up(as straight as it gets anyway)before I start bringing all the fall stuff in from the garage.I can't wait!
I actually saw a home in our neighborhood with pumpkins out on the porch already!

Brierly Ashour~~

When the goldenrod is yellow,
And leaves are turning brown -
Reluctantly the summer goes
In a cloud of thistledown.

When squirrels are harvesting
And birds in flight appear -
By these autumn signs we know
September days are here.

Hi Amy, When you make that Apple Butter...please post the recipe...I made some a couple years ago...and it was awful! If yours turns out good, I would love to have the recipe and know how you did it. Blessings, Nancy
