Amazing Autumn (and some good books too!)

Even though each season is special, I must say that Autumn is my very favorite. Maybe because summers are so hot and humid where I live, and it feels so refreshing when the weather turns cool. Or it might be because the trees in my area turn beautiful shades of crimson, yellow and orange. But whatever the reason, I have to say that to me....Autumn is amazing! I'm always in awe of the Lord's handiwork in the Fall colors and the bright blue skies of October. ~ One thing I love to do in this season is read on my front porch. Feeling the crisp, cool breezes blowing and hearing my front-yard birds chirping create a relaxing atmosphere and I become totally immersed in a good book. Two good books I recently purchased are The Captain's Mission by author Debby Giusti, and Oklahoma Reunion by author Tina Radcliffe. Both of these are Love Inspired books, which releases new titles each month. Since these are October releases, they won't be around too long, so hurry to your local Walmart or bookstore to purchase them. Then find a relaxing spot and enjoy these books---and Autumn!

Trivia Tuesday

Do you enjoy reading trivia or playing trivia-related games? I do! For some reason, I've always enjoyed learning little tidbits of knowledge (well...some trivia might not actually be considered knowledge, LOL). But trivia has been interesting to me, and sometimes downright fascinating! I decided that I'll try posting some trivia on my little blog one Tuesday each month---just for fun. I hope any readers who stop by will enjoy these little bits of information! *Also, I obtained these from various sites on the internet, and am assuming them to be true.* TRIVIA FROM CATMOM:

Goldfish have a memory span of 3 seconds.

It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open!

Almonds are a member of the peach family.

world. * Hmmmm....I was a little skeptical

about this one!*
