Does anyone else associate yellow with autumn?  Do you ever notice how so many flowers that bloom in the late summer/early fall are yellow.

The Goldenrod has been blooming here for a few weeks.  It seems to me it has been early.  This photo did come from the end of September in 2011.  So maybe I am not imagining them being early.

Even though I am not anxious for winter, I am anxious for fall...for the roadsides to be alive with vibrant color.  For cool mornings.  I long for a walk in the see ginseng as it gets the golden glow of autumn with its bright red berries.   I want to smell the earthy smell of the me it seems stronger in autumn months.

I long for a walk in woods that ends up on a gravel bar in a stream where we can build a fire and hang a piece of meat on a stick and let it sizzle over the open flame.  I must admit I know of no place here that I could do that.  Still I long for that experience once again.

I am trying to wait patiently for my washer.  It is to be delivered and installed on Thursday afternoon.  I want to thank each and every one of you for your input.  I wish I had had time to wait for them all...but I knew I was going to have to wait a few days the best I could do.  So I had to bite the bullet and order one.

I went with a top loader again...a Whirlpool.  Before the dryer I have now, I had a Whirlpool and really liked it.  So I hope I like the Whirlpool washer as well.  I think I said before for every plus there is a negative...whether I went with front loader or top loader.  So I just hope I can live with my choice.  At least I won't have to wash by hand on a washboard or go to the laundry mat.

I made a pot of chili this afternoon...I like soup any time of year.  And would gladly do a pot of some kind of soup weekly, but that would not do for Roger.  He likes chili soup probably better than any.  And might possibly eat a second time from this.  And he will eat vegetable beef every now and then, but only one serving...only at one meal.  However, I could live on soups just about all year long.

Do you have a favorite food that you like any time of year...any season?
