Settling In

WoodpileIt's not supposed to get above freezing today.  Those upper sixties of Monday and Tuesday are gone.  There's snow dusting the roofs of houses and bits here and there on the grass.  It was magical to look out yesterday and see the mist change to snow.  I am glad we soaked in the last of the warmth.

I am feeling increasingly ready for Winter, though it seems like Autumn has passed much too quickly.  The children seem happy about it all.  The Christmas Creep is inescapable, though I am trying hard to hold off until December arrives.  I have a couple harvest celebration songs that seem appropriate for Thanksgiving, though the holiday itself is such a mixed-up event.  We made Autumn sugar cookies yesterday and our traditional hand turkeys to decorate the walls.  Laurel Mae had her first homemade cookie and ate it so very delicately, unlike her ravenous consumption of green beans.

Might have to roast a pumpkin today to really warm things up.  I got a stick blender last week and it makes quick work of things! 

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
