trudging through high grass
Trudging through high grass yesterday afternoon, we spotted the first red and yellow leaves, and deer eating clover on the misty hillside. That smile I'm smiling is partly due to the fact that there was a chill in the air, and I was wearing boots and a knit wrap vest. At some point during our walk I realized I had been grinning since we left the house, so I took a photo to remember...this is how I feel when September arrives!
Today the sun is shining, but there's a cool wind blowing, and a dog barking in the distance, and I know somewhere there's a man stacking a neat woodpile. I know somewhere there's a tree heavy with ripening apples, and there's a pumpkin expanding in the last of the fleeting summer warmth.
Did you know that cinnamon-sugar is fairy dust? Sprinkle it on buttered toast and sprout wings.
