First Fall

I love the Lord of Rings trilogy. It’s a beautiful story of friendship, of internal and external battles between good and evil, of selflessness, and sacrifice. I adore The Shire and it’s inhabitants. The Hobbits touch my heart with their innocence and childish ways. They have such a big appetite for such a little people.

Here is their daily eating schedule. It causes them a fair amount of grief if it is altered.

First Breakfast – 7 a.m.

Second Breakfast – 9 a.m.

Elevenses – 11 a.m.

Luncheon – 1 p.m.

Afternoon Tea – 3 p.m.

Dinner – 6 p.m.

Supper – 9 p.m.

I thought of Hobbits when as I sat outside in the coolness of the evening. A hint of fall was in the air. There is also a hint of color in the tree across the road from me. That tree is always gorgeous in autumn .

First Fall…

First Fall is as exciting to me as First Breakfast is to a hobbit. And it awakens a great anticipation for Second Breakfast.

I love all seasons but fall is an unexplainable charm to me. It awakens me. It brings out the creative and romantic side of me. It’s both mystical and enchanting. Autumn is my favorite.

Now I can barely wait for Second Fall.

Enjoy this day. Time is fleeting. Seasons come and go like the wind. I’m not gonna rush summer but I certainly did like the taste of first fall. ♥️

  1. It’s nice to have a fall.

    They just aren’t they used to be around here. I remember fall came and days you would burn up in the sun and freeze in the shade. A fall night was spectacular. The atmosphere seemed so clean! You could literally see every star in the sky.

    It’s not like this anymore. It stays hot until December.

            1. Canada is burning up. There are like 180 fires currently. It’s been very hot. Extremely hot. I got a message from a friend tonight who said the fire is all around him. That was about 5 hours ago. I haven’t heard from him since.
