Random Moments of Delight: Delicious Autumn

After 18 years in season-less Southern California, I am basking in the delicious autumn here in the mountains of McCall, Idaho.


I imagine myself winging around the world finding all the autumns, and yet, if I didn’t know the other seasons (yes there are actually four here), it wouldn’t be such a joy when fall comes.

We’ve had rain on and off every day this week. During the off, Cooper and I have gone walking in the woods.


Cooper is never still, lots of delicious things to see and smell.

I even had to go down to the barn to haul out my winter coat, hat and gloves. I have this great pair of mittens. I can use my camera and still keep my hands warm.


A little big, but when the mitten part covers the fingers very toasty.

Let me take you on a walk around our property.

When I got back from the walk, I realized I really need rubber boots!

As wonderful as my pink and brown cowboy boots are, they are no match for wet woods.

Shopping opportunity! This pair of delicious rain boots is heading my way as we speak.


This is what I saw when I walked down to the mail box. Our drive is delightful with golden aspen leaves and rusty pine needles strewn about. Autumn has such wonderful color and texture!


Guess I should have waited for my boots. Just that short walk on a gravel road got my shoes wet!


Yes I still wear fun socks, and lately I’ve mismatched them. Hey, I may live on a ranch, but I’m still whimsical! The fairies like them…

One thing I miss here is the red of the maples from New England autumns, but with a little hunting I found some red on the forest floor. It’ll do!


I hope you are all enjoying your September, whether it is spring wherever you are, or fall or a non-season 😉 . Nature is amazing in all of her delicious aspects!

As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.

    Thank you Patricia. The word enchanting is a perfect descriptor for the ranch. I can’t wait to get the boots! But of course now we have a whole week of sunny weather coming up!
