sweet smell of autumn

Ah, yes... the nights are crisp, mornings are down-right nippy, and there has been frost on the pumpkin (leaves) at least once already! Get ready folks, it's all down hill from here... or up hill. I guess it depends.
Because Winter follows Autumn, I can't help but feel a twinge of dread for what lies ahead- snow, ice, huge fuel bills, having to spend 10 minutes getting bundled up in order to take the dog out for a 5 second pee- and longing for what is already becoming a distant memory- lots of daylight, home grown veggies, wearing flip-flops and not much else, loon calls in the night...
But on the other hand.... Winter has the bluest skies you'll ever see, is when I get to slow down and spend a lot of time indoors being creative, and it precedes Spring, which gives me something really wonderful to look forward to, and for me, that is the best way to live.
And you can look forward to more frequent blog entries from me in the coming months!


  1. Yay! You're back! Most people don't realize our Winter skies are so clear and blue here. But I am looking forward to the Autumn colors and long walks in Acadia before Winter hits!

  2. Wow, it's been a hectic Summer!
    I used to spend a lot of time in the Park when I lived in Bar Harbor(a very long time ago)and I think I'll have to make it a point to visit again now that the traffic has lessened (a little!)
    Oh, another cool thing about Winter... when the ground is covered with snow, the sky is clear, AND the moon is full... Crickey, it's just like daylight! LOVE IT!
