The fresh and cool air in the morning, when the sun peaks through the treetops and makes the sky look crispy blue. To me, autumn is as much a feeling and a state of mind as it is the third seeason of the year.
The thing that I love about autumn is that it's both an end and a beginning at the same time....
It's the end of summer, but it's not only a transition, it has its own temperament and strength. The thing is that it sums the whole year up into one season!! The beginnings I'm talking about are school and the life in general resuming after a loooooong break during summer. Autumn brings: New clothes, new friendships, new possibilities. The feeling of purchasing new pencils and opening new books - glorious!!!
The days shift rapidly during this season; one day is sunny and fresh, the next is moist and foggy.Those are the days when going out gives you the ulitimate experince. The fog is like a veil through the trees, the air is feelig slightly colder. You can smell the lit fireplaces, and given the day, the rain can blow in all directions causing leafs to whirl around you as you take a walk. The daylight is loosing its place as darkness takes over and nights are instanly getting longer.
As the day gets shorter, the temprature drops, the trees lose their leaves and nature is preparing for an extended sleep, winter comes crawling - almost unnoticed....The days are turning into gray, shades of white yellow and pink - frost covers the ground and makes everything quiet and still. Then one morning - winter arrives, and the silence is complete.....
While speaking of autumn - and I always associate Pooh with autumn, trees faling down becuase of the wind, Piglet flying as a kite, and Owl drinking tea while his house is crumbling - I haven't been able to finish the Winnie the Pooh quilt yet...... where did the time go..... I'm sure, though, that I'm getting there..... I have a very impatient 3 year old!! I only have the quilting and bindig part left.... Here is a little preview
Wish you all a fabulous weekend!!!!
