It is still Autumn.

Ok, so the windows are washed and sparkling in the sunshine. I have cleaned the glass on the onion post lights and all the porch windows along with the house windows. All the oaks in the front yard are casting a wonderful warm red glow. They are the last to turn color...it starts with the maples and birch in the back that turn yellow. The red of the oaks will turn brown after the red. There is a sweet smell of Autumn in the air. Wood is stacked and gardens are almost all cut back.

As I look at the blogs I see Christmas everywhere. I want to think about Thanksgiving first. A bit more Autumn...although I did pick up some Christmas gift bags and have got my list together. I am just not ready for decorating for Christmas yet.

My kittys are staying in more with the nip to the air. I like them around the house. ~In the summer they are about in the gardens and when I go out to work they will pounce and run.





There will be snow and ice before we know it and the scent of pine will be in the air.
Let's just savor these last fall days while we have them.

I'm with you Donna! While I love Christmas and all the decorations, I really enjoy being out and about in the Fall weather. I'm in no hurry and I'm still busy unpacking and placing things from our move. I'm okay with waiting to unpack still more boxes to get the Christmas decorations out!
