Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own.
~ Charles Dickens
As hard as I have tried, I haven’t been able find a way to hold onto summer. Despite my penchant for sundresses and flip-flops, the days of long sleeves and fleece-lined boots have arrived. Might as well stop the resistance and make the best of them, I decided.
So I have replaced the worn-out summer annuals with mums and pansies
and bundled up in sweats to enjoy long walks in my sunny neighborhood.
I am back to work on the granny square afghan I started months ago,
putting the finishing touches on my presentation for the Georgia Music Teachers Association fall conference in November,
and gearing up for NaNoWriMo.

So what if autumn isn’t my favorite season of the year? I really don’t have to look very hard to find plenty of reasons to celebrate it.
