My Favorite Season is Fall. I love this time of year. The temperatures have dropped and I can stand to be outside. There is an air of expectation as everyone goes back to school and summer draws to a close. The “Boys of Fall” are beginning to play their football games.
The holiday season is approaching. It is a time for family and friends. I love watching the leaves change and the autumn flowers appearing: the cascades of mums appearing at every doorstep, the Halloween displays with the bales of hay and scarecrows and the ghosts and bats appearing in the neighborhood trees.
I love the readying for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. The Turkey and Pilgrim decorations, the recipes appearing in every newspaper and website and Facebook stream, then the sales and decorations for Christmas with the lights, trees, and Santas!
I love the holiday gatherings with family and friends. I love keeping the traditions of the family alive for the new generation! Fall denotes the mix of happiness and anticipation of happiness as well as the love of heritage and tradition!
The prompt for week 4 is Favourite Season (s)
A Happy Memory.
Close your eyes and imagine your favourite season – write down what you see, feel, hear.
The Book of Me, Written by You
By Julie Goucher 2012 – Anglers Rest Blog – http://www.anglersrest.net
The Book of Me is a themed event enabling you to build a “Book of Me” over at least the coming year to share with your descendants, in reality this project can be as long or as short as you want it to be. So much of our time is researching our ancestors, but how much of the incidentals of our lives do we share, or know about our parents, grandparents, siblings and the people that matter to us? It is these incidental snippets that enable us to “flesh out” our ancestors and what more of a legacy could we present to our descendants or future researchers? Over the coming weeks there will be a weekly prompt enabling you to share those details and perhaps include details of things that you know of your parents, Grandparents, siblings etc. This is not just about genealogy or family history. It is about a personal journey; a journey of rediscovery of yourself and perhaps your loved ones through your eyes.
