Thankful Thursday: Loving Fall

10 Oct

Lulu Sofie Oct 13

As the winds from Hurricane Karen swing back into the Mid-Atlantic, we are saying good-bye to the unusually hot Fall, and hello to more seasonable October weather (cold and wet).  We have been very thankful for the added warmth that has allowed us to run around the river for a longer time and I am sure that the boating people were happy for extra days at sea.  But now, with the dark mornings and the shorter days, it seems only right that the leaves actually fall to the ground, and that the earth begin her closure toward the cold months.  I am a Fall person.  It has always been a time of introspection, of pulling in, of preparing for the long dark time, after harvest.  I love the colors, and the sound of the wind, and the cooler nights.  I can’t say that I like the darker days, but they do allow for warm fires in the fireplace and soup and hot tea.  Thank you, Great Spirit, for all the wonders of the universe that we are able to enjoy, every day.  And, thank you for Fall.

I’m also thankful that Louise is healing well and that Sofie is staying out of the rose bushes.

    We love fall too, and the shorter days are not all that bad…a good excuse to get to bed earlier and get some more rest!

    I like fall. With the mist, the rain (except it is the great deluge) and the wind. The smells in the air are gorgeous and the colors of the leaves are like magic :o)
