The nights are chilly.
We had frost this morning.
The boat came out of the water today.
It's dark by 8:00 p.m.
and I am baking constantly....
Hunters are getting excited about buck season.
Clothing and décor has changed over to heavier fabrics, and darker colors.
The markets are packed with pumpkins and cornstalks, apple cider and donuts.
You see canning and freezing supplies in all of the grocery stores.
Scented candles are everywhere!
People's yards are void of lawn furniture.
The canals, and docks are being emptied of boats, jet skiis, and pontoons.
Gardens are being cleaned up, and bushes are getting cut back.
Urns, and birdbaths are emptied, as well as flower pots and containers.
People are preparing their motor homes for the long trip south for the Winter.
Homes are being winterized.
The season of so many changes.
Fall, here, is a time of preparation.
Hunkering down for "what's to come".
Living in the upper portion of the lower peninsula of Michigan means shorter Summers, and longer Winters. We get lots of cold, wind, and snow....for what seems sooooo long. You learn to adjust...or go south.
I am going to try something new this year. Snowshoeing. Hopefully, that will help give me something fun to tackle during the long Winter months. Plus, working on some miniatures should keep me busy.
In the meantime, I will take my time, and enjoy Fall.....trying some new recipes, and looking forward to the upcoming holidays with my family.
Have a great week!
