Thank you for this. 🙂
isn’t this the truth?
If we’re not too distracted to notice.

Thank you, Agnes.
Poised indeed! And trying to stay balanced while wishing summer would linger longer. 🙂
Our summer has been such a mixed bunch this year that I am in two minds. We often have our best weather in autumn. And then all those colourful leaves …
It’s been similar here. It seems that the seasons aren’t as predictable as they used to be. Now we too sometimes have our best weather in April and September. Summer is more like a long spring – except for all the droughts. Fires are rampant on our west coast…. But I digress! Yes, always the beautiful leaves we can look forward to. 🙂
This is perfect. I can’t wait for the brilliance of Autumn but not the entrance to Winter.
Winter has its moments too, or at least for me. 🙂
For like a nano second. Mmmm like the first snow fall. The late night walks in the snow storm. Navy skies speckled in white. Puffs of cold smoke from our mouths. Yes… A few wonderful stolen moments of gold
Hot buttered toast? Snuggling up? Roast potatoes? The crunchy sounds when walking through crisp snow …
Warm fire burning in the living room. Pancakes for dinner… Warm maple syrup with apples.
See. Winter’s not that bad really. 🙂
