Farewell To Summer...
Whether it was camping, new landscaping, playing in the garden, sewing, hanging by the pool or lake...doing what we do best -being a family...we enjoyed our summer to the fullest. Now that fall is in the air, with it's crisp mornings and chilly evenings...I am looking forward to quieter times. When it is dark by dinner-time, breads and scones are being baked, holidays are on my mind, leaves will need to be raked up and a garden to winterize. The return of fall is the return of dance class, play auditions and bike-a-thons. A long vacation to the OR Coast for Thanksgiving, Christmas gifts to sew and various items to knit. But I must say...nothing says "Fall's here!" like the adding of pumpkin spice to my favorite coffee...or baked acorn squash with butter and brown sugar...I'm just making myself hungry!
Farewell to Summer...and a warm welcome to Fall!
