Writer’s Quote Wednesdays (WQW): Autumn or Fall

I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.
― Nathaniel Hawthorne

“The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves. We have had our summer evenings; now for October eves!”
– Humbert Wolfe

Thanks Yvette at Priorhouse Blog and Marsha Ingaro – Always Write for hosting this challenge! Have a wonderful Sunday.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

      1. I love deer with those big eyes, inquisitive looks and the expressive ears … you were lucky she looked up at you. That would be quite a sight to see a family of deer – I hope to see that one day Esther.

      2. This comment digresses but it reminded me of something that’s been on my mind recently: we’ve been listening to an Audible book titled Skunk and Badger. I didn’t know what a badger looked like until I saw an instagram post of a baby one. The book also mentioned the animal “stoat” that eats chickens. Today at the museum we saw a picture of a stoat. Interesting to see fictional animal creatures in real life. Good learning connections. And we listened to “Homer Price” where one of the animal characters is a skunk named “Aroma.” Why are skunks coming up in our literature reads?!

      3. I’ve never seen a stoat or badger and skunks are kind of “undesirable” so I’m surprised they are in your literature reads. When I was a kid I loved watching “Animal Kingdom” with Marlin Perkins, a series on TV about wild animals. I always learned something on that show.


      4. The characters in these books are very lovable and charismatic. The skunk “Aroma” is from Homer Price and he helps the main character catch robbers. Skunk and Badger is a recent book about two roommates and the stoat is a villain who tries to eat Skunk’s chicken friends. hahaha. Audible listen is great on that one.
        I used to watch nature shows too…I wonder if it was called “Animal Kingdom.” Those shows always teach you something cool and interesting; much to learn from nature and animals.


    1. Hi Marsha, my pleasure to join your challenge. Yvette told me about it. I’ll try to be more active on it now that I know. The doe was surprised by us walking up to the bridge. My son said, “wouldn’t it be nice if we saw a deer at this bridge” when we walked up to it. And we looked down, and there was the doe!!
