We've been building to the point for a few weeks now and it was very obvious this morning before I checked the calendar that this point had arrived. Misty mornings with a warm Indian Summer day - it must be the Autumnal Equinox. After today the days will shorten and in a few weeks it will be getting dark just after the boys come home from school. However its not all doom and gloom - autumn brings forth some wonderful things;
The colours as the leaves turn orange, red and brown;
When they were smaller the boys loved to collect conkers and acorns and of course there's the fun of running through piles of fallen leaves.
Darker evenings mean that its going to get cooler too - I must crack on with my crochet blankets. The Giant Granny blanket is coming on well - the beauty of this one is it keeps you warm as you add each new round;
Another thing I love on cooler and darker days is to snuggle up with a good book or magazine. This week as I've been confined mainly to indoors, I worked my way through another pile of reading;
After all this talk of autumn and keeping warm etc, I've just checked the weekend forecast. Seems here in Suffolk we're promised an Indian Summer - so the cropped trousers might come out again and hopefully someone will be around to wheel me out in the sunshine and possibly we'll even make a trip to the seaside!
Have a lovely weekend, whatever you are doing.
See you next week.
