Really fall, for real


The Indian summer has broken. We ran the heat last night. Trees are turning red. The light is golden on the corn stubble. Loaves of fresh bread are cooling on the counter, there is applesauce on the stovetop, apple crisp in the oven, and chili in the crock pot. I’m wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. The mums are blooming with lush profusion, in spite of neglect.


It’s really here. Thank goodness.

  1. Your mums are gorgeous! I am so happy Fall has arrived. It was in the mid 80’s and humid over the weekend, but getting cooler today. We are forecasted to be in the low 60’s tomorrow for the high, and I am so excited! I am making chili for dinner tonight, and the kitchen smells so good right now. I need to make some homemade bread soon, though!
