Sure signs that we're right in the midst of fall: I'm wearing sweaters, and I feel like cooking again! Soup is back on the menu, and Kyle made the best sugar cookies. They were not around very long.
Our neighbors are back. They seem to be a quiet bunch this year.
Yet another sign of fall: bugs, bugs, bugs! We've been attacked by those little lady bug things, the ones that bite. Towards midday they start to look like rain, they're just everywhere. Kyle was my knight-in-shining-hoodie the other day, and brought me green beans from the garage freezer, since I didn't want to leave the house! They have gotten better since yesterday though. Should be almost done.
I'm so grateful for cool weather and a quiet place to walk! The trees around our house are just lovely. No sugar maples or burning bushes, but the yellows just glow on dark days, and the sumac give us some red.
Hey! What about ME? Scenery is nice and all, but don't get carried away!
Oh yes, sorry sweetie. Is this better?
Yes, thank you.
Speaking of fall and bugs, someone in the family has developed a taste for ladybugs. Literally, I'm afraid. I could sweep five times a day and still be fishing them out of her mouth! At least we know she has good eye sight. Her fine motor skills are also developing nicely.
