It's autumn again. Really, I wasn't quite ready for it this year. I still had summer on my mind. My windows were open, my woolens were stored away, and my sandals were by the door. Then the leaves started turning and I ordered a new down comforter. I found the corduroys. Then I pulled out the knitting. But I wasn't ready.
It wasn't until I took a hike through the woods that I welcomed autumn. Suddenly everything felt right. The lower sun in the sky. The cooler nights. The flannel sheets.
So here I sit with wool on the needles, comforters on the bed, chili on the stove. Autumn is back and I'm soaking these days right up.
