knee deep in weeds

notes on a simple life

hello fall

After a long, dry and very warm summer it seems fall came overnight. The air coming in through our open window at night is cool and the comforter came out of the closet. Our summer was full of goodness but I am ready for shorter days and some rain. Yesterday he and I took the dog for a long walk along the Cedar River where fall is starting to show her colors.
