I have to admit that although I will miss warm days, fresh peaches, and lake swimming, I really do prefer the autumn to any other season. I am in full 'prep for hibernation' mode - cleaning out the cold cellar (ridiculously embarrassing photos to come), trying to convince my hubby to buy another cord of fire wood, making blankets , and canning every scrap of produce in sight. I love the fresh air, the smells of cool earth, sweet apples, fresh woolens, and dried leaves. I love watching my children finally launch themselves into the 'perfect ' pile of leaves, after having worked on it without a single 'test run' for 20 minutes until it was just right.
