Is it Fall already?

The weather has turned. For a week or more temperatures were in the 90's with high humidity.  In this 100 year old house without air conditioning it was hard to sleep at night when the temps stay up in the high 80's even in the early hours of the mornings. And then, almost in the twinkling of an eye, most certainly in an hour or two, the temperature dropped 20-25 degrees and Fall was here.
 For several days now I see Vees of geese flying south.  A few of the trees just beginning to turn.  The now-fat squirrels have raised their families and are busy darting here and there in the yard burying acorns and nuts for Winter.  They seem to know that perhaps Winter will come early and stay late this year.

Liz and I are preparing a brochure for the quilting business and needed some photos taken.  Yesterday Beka took some shots of us.  It was amazing the varied backgrounds we found within one half block from her house.  Living in the Historic Jordan, MN downtown has many wonderful props and backgrounds.  Here's one of me.

I like this one of the two of us too.

I don't think of myself as photogenic.  It was kind of fun though to be posed in various locations, changing clothes and all.  Beka does a good job!  But I can't begin to think what it would have been like if we tried to take these last week in the heat!  I think Fall is here.  I wonder about Indian Summer?
