It hasn't been one of those awesome falls, in my neck of the woods. You know the ones where the sun is shining that low golden light. The ones where afternoons are warm and evenings are crisp. The ones where there is that good dried leaf smell in the air and you crave to be out walking just to hear the leaves crunching under your feet. No it hasn't.
It looks like this out my front door. Yes that is snow sitting on my pumpkin.
It looks like this out my back door. Soggy leaves mixed in with snow.
Yes, it has been a somewhat bleak fall this year. The skies are grey, the wind is chilly and it feels good to be inside.
So on this afternoon I have lit some candles.
I'm spending some time with my favourite magazine (It's from The Netherlands so it takes a while to hit the Canadian shelves.) and some sleeping dogs. I think it's almost time to boil some water for tea time.
