The last days of summer are here and this year is no exception to any other for me. Although I love fall, summer's departure feels a little bittersweet. I'm still soaking in the warm days and snacking on the last of the cherry tomatoes in the garden.
Still, I notice I've started craving things like warm scones out of the oven and pots on the stove simmering with all kinds of flavor. (I think chili is a must on the menu this week.) I'm watching for those little seeds I planted to start popping out of the ground in the garden with our (hopeful) fall bounty. The fall flowers are starting to bloom in the flower garden and we're dreaming of a stand packed full with bouquets in shades of fall.
The farmers markets are starting to bring out all the delights of fall. So far I've managed to resist the pumpkins, but definitely not the apples!
Our big project to start this fall is our upstairs bathroom. We've been putting it off for... oh, a year or so. ;-) But I noticed Justus sketching away this weekend with ideas, and I'm dreaming away.
Happy early fall to you!
