Today I saw a beautiful blue bird on a beautiful September day!
I have always loved being outside. I love living in Minnesota where we get to experience the beauty of every season. The past couple of years I haven't been outside very much in the fall. This year I am making a real effort to change that pattern.
This year I feel that Minnesota has been blessed with a wonderful September. It has been sunny and in the 70's and 80's every single day. I have been outside a lot this fall riding my bike, walking and gardening!
I feel so alive and grateful to be able to enjoy a beautiful blue jay on a beautiful September day!

Lately I have been listening to the sounds of late summer. I have turned off my stereo and my television. I am amazed at the sounds of late summer. In the morning the birds are active and communicating among themselves. The squirrels are busy with black walnuts. I can hear a few black walnuts falling from the tree in my backyard right now! The leaves on the trees are just starting to change color. It is amazing how different the leaves sound in the late summer. In the evening the sound of crickets fill my neighborhood!
I'm so glad I can hear all the sounds of late summer!
