fall is definitely in the air. i’ve brought a bit of it indoors this year, with leaves and branches from around the house gathered on my mantel.
i love the textures and colours this time of year brings.
i’ve also brought in the last of the tomatoes, cucumbers, cut back my herbs and dried them. we’ve also built two raised cedar beds in anticipation of planting more veggies this spring. i’ll have to write about that another time.
but as it happens this time of year, the cold has also found its way indoors. the floors feel cold and you can hear the dragging of my shaggy slippers across the frigid floor in the mornings (shuffling in the general direction of the coffee pot). you will also hear exclamations of “it’s freezing!” from various family members (myself included). but i’m trying to see how long we can go before turning on the heat.
i think i’ll go put one more sweater on…
