An autumn morning by the fire
It was really not light enough outdoors to read until 7 a.m., and it was foggy, with the occasional drip of moisture from the trees overhead. Nevertheless, conscious that this might be one of our last possible Saturday mornings to have our quiet time by the campfire, we proceeded with our plans. Mr. T brought out our camping chairs and little table and built a fire in the campfire ring (and I soon found myself drawing my chair closer to it). So nice to sit by the fire in the beautiful autumn woods and read our Bibles and pray amid quietness and the background crackling of the campfire.
(These pictures are from earlier this summer; our camera is not working right now. The leaf below is a scan from a previous autumn; I love its pink and green color!)
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
