Blue skies...

Happy weekending!...This pretty blue sky was such a wonderful thing to wake up to this morning.  We've been fortunate to have many lovely days like this recently.  The mornings begin with just the faintest promise of the fall that is to come, but by midmorning it is warm and positively summerish.  But look...

this little patch of red and gold are just starting to color our trees.  Pretty soon we will be apple picking, donning warm woolens and crunching leaves as we walk around town.  Even though we have lived in the midwest for twenty-two years now, I still get a thrill when fall comes.  I grew up in southeast Texas, and it has it's own seasons to be sure, but nothing like the dramatic golds and reds of autumn here.  I love the fall... it is crazy busy, always, but it may just be my favorite season of the year...that is until we get to winter, spring and summer!  Maybe it's just the change and the connectedness to nature that I feel when the seasons change so dramatically.  For now I will enjoy this summery day, sitting on the porch with a glass of iced tea and smiling at the promise of the cool days ahead and all the lovely knitting, baking and cozying that is to come.  Here's hoping that you have a wonderful weekend full of  blue skies and peaceful moments...Alison
