Accepting Autumn...

Autumn is a funny time for me, I appreciate the beautiful colours I even look forward to the warm cosy evenings snuggling up in front of the fire with beautiful wool to knit with or cosy cord to sew. Spending time in my kitchen in the day cooking up hearty meals and of course getting my slow cooker out for all those warming stews and casseroles. But... I am a summer girl and of course Autumn marks the end of those long lovely days out in the fresh air, time spent on beaches and swimming in the sea, eating food outside and BBQs, flowing easy dressing, make up free thanks to the freckles the sun has blessed me with. Yes its a time of sadness for me. However with so much change going on in my life I am more accepting even welcoming this year of the visible changes on the land that mark the passing of time.
Yes, accepting... enjoying the dew kissed grass in the early mornings as I let the animals out to play for the day, the change in clothes as I pull out all my beautiful knitted tops which wrap around me like a second skin, re heeling my favourite boots and sorting out my socks and funky tights ready for the cooler days.
Of course if your a blog reader you can not helped but have noticed the many posts about the seasonal fruits, sadly my pair tree has a nasty disease and the pears are inedible this year, but the apples (not from my own garden but a welcome gift) are a treat this year, so on a cooler, wetter day whilst the babes worked hard at school, this Mommy peeled chopped and baked...
Topping up the larder and the freezer, little bags of apple sauce ready for a winters worth of roast dinners and of course Christmas Dinner with homemade apple sauce and pies for those times when you need a treat of a pudding... did I really say Christmas then?
Yes I accept the changes around me and this year I even embrace it, without even realising it I have noticed my selection of colours has changed from bright to darker earthy tones in what I wear and indeed what I sew.....


I wish you a wonderful week as day by day the leaves on the trees change and the grass needs mowing less...

I'll be round for that apple pie later - yum!
I'm such an autumn girl, can't wait to put my legs away and dig out the boots, light the fire and cosy down for the next few months.
Have a lovely week

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like this , everywhere I look people are welcoming autumn/winter but I also like the summer and will miss it -- a lot.

Each season has it's special aspects, and so it's easy to miss then when seasons change. I am missing summer too...And trying to get into the groove of autumn as well. I do like the cosiness of evenings ahead though--more time to knit and craft--hooray! Happy Days ((HUGS))

I too am a summer lover. Although...I enjoy fall it is all to much of a reminder that cold, dark days are fast approaching.

I am still in denial - the weather here is still so nice that I cannot accept that it's now autumn - the legs are still well and truly out! Have been busy making jam though so I guess it must really be october! (Shame I didn't finish knitting my youngest's summer dress in time for the summer!) Those pies and jams look very tasty!

I feel a bit sad about the end of summer. I'm really a spring person and Noreen loves autumn...maybe that's why we're such good friends!

All those things to do with apples...lovely.

Margaret (and Noreen)

It's feeling very autumnal here today. Although I miss the long summer days I do enjoy nestling down with some comfort knitting at this time of year :)
