A change in the air

The nights are getting longer and the days shorter. Everyone seems to be in a frantic rush to get those last few things done before winter. Work on the flower beds has gone into over drive.
The search for winter hats, coats, mittens, snow pants and boots has begun. The stores now stock ice scrapers instead of bikinis. My thoughts are turning to indoor cooking. From Mac and cheese to homemade breads and cookies. They make the house feel like home. The kids and I started our afternoon tea ritual again. I have missed it.
These two are getting in the last of the sandbox playing for the year. It is conceivable in a month they will be building snow castles instead of sand. Last year we got our first major snow fall three days before Halloween.
The season is changing here in my little piece of heaven. I look forward to the fun the next season brings.

Okay ... we just had the first day of fall yesterday ... and you’re talking about winter!!! Havent' you hear?... winter doesn’t start until December 20 something!!!! I know it’s been a rough week … and you do live in Upstate New York ….(not far from the infamous Buffalo) …. but why are you making me think about winter!?!?

I just saw your photos on flickr and watched a slide show …. YOU! … are a really good photographer! …. And you have some beautiful subjects hanging around there to be photographed! Keep up the good work!

(And may your first snow … at least wait until Thanksgiving!)

I know, I should start thinking about those things too, but the weather has been pretty nice here still. I hope it continues for your trip out here. :)
