up & down

autumn has taken it's turn toward winter.
the nights are colder.
the mornings are darker.
we had our first frost.
our pumpkins are carved.
seeds were roasted and eaten. (salty was best. i burned the sweet.)
halloween costumes are still being assembled.
my big fuzzy sweater robe has been pulled out and donned while working inside. still holding off on turning on the heat.
most of the color has all turned to that golden brown, soon there will only be bare sticks, "stick season" til we get our first snow... not like i am in any hurry for that.  december would be fine by me.  i like to dream. started to stock up on cocoa. (note to self: need marshmallows!)
what have you been up to?

oh, kristin, i thought of you yesterday when i realized all our gingko leaves were down... they were frozen with last friday's frost and fell to the ground without ever turning yellow!! so sad! i'm so glad to see your sunny ones... and i'm trying my best to clean and organize inside, so i can enjoy the hibernation that is coming. and of course i am taking advantage of every warm day to be outside. xo
