Fall is on the way

Longer and longer the shadows become as we take our evening stroll.  The boys' bicycle wheels, mostly silent on the pavement, greet us with the occasional crunch of a dry leaf as we go by.  Golden green and red pears in the neighbor's yard and an almost cool breeze remind me as I walk that the seasons are finally about to change.  I can almost smell the pear bread in the oven already!

It is time to take out the fireplace screen and clean it off.  It is time to re-organize autumnal crafting supplies and get the garden ready for cooler months.  It is almost time for Halloween and preparations are underway already.

I'm smiling!  This is our favorite time of year!

Fall is on the way!
