Autumn is here. I noticed today that the light has shifted from bright to flat. The air has a chill. The leaves are finally changing. Walking to meet my daughter at the bus stop reminded me of the beginning of Something Wicked This Way Comes.

This time of year makes me want to can peaches and chop firewood for the big storms ahead. I don't do anything that labor intensive, so I decided to wind all the skeins I need in the next few months into balls.
I had to put on a sweater to finish my salad because I got cold. I'll be baking bread and wearing wool socks soon. Maybe I'll cook a bubbling pot of something besides wool and dye.

Cold is on it's way. They are saying there's a possibility of snow on Friday.

Have you gotten snow up there yet? (My dad, in northern New Hampshire, got flurries last night, so winter is under way at the higher latitudes...)

That salad/yarn photo is great! I love the colours of this time of year. No snow yet, but the leaves are getting so pretty.

Autumn is such a lovely time of year. I love the cozy feeling, the opportunity to bake (our apartment doesn't have AC, and it's too hot during the summer) and cuddling up with cozy yarn.

Its quite chilly here today. I'm actually wearing a cardigan and a wet felted scarf :-) Chowder is simmering on the stove and I baked bread on Tuesday so that will go in the oven for a reheat just before dinner too. It's definitely getting to be that time of year!
