Even though I don’t want summer to be over, that crispness in the air
has arrived, along with the low mists over the blueberry fields I pass on
my way to work. There are crunchy leaves in the parking lot and, sadly,
I know in my heart that it is farewell to summer and on to fall. That said,
fall means I can start cooking heartier foods, comfort foods, some wonderful
soups, stews, curries and casseroles. Plus, some of the fall book releases are out
now (hooray Louise Penny!) so the to-be-read pile will be getting taller but with more
time indoors due to the almost guaranteed rain to come,
there will be even more time for reading. I haven’t gone to school for a long time now
but somehow September feels like the new year for me; a fresh start, time
to get to projects that have been put off and maybe even time to buy new clothes and shoes.
Hope you had a fabulous summer and that you will have a wonderful fall.
Happy New Year and have a great weekend!
