This summer just flew by! Between hikes and work and trips out of town I just don't know how time got away from me. We had a full summer but we leave it with just a little sadness. School is back in session, so morning routines are back in place. I don't think anyone appreciates having to get up to the alarm clock. This fall we are going to be taking advantage of our last few days without rain and enjoy the splendor of the outdoors. I hope to spend time over the fall and winter fixing up the retaining wall, building raised garden beds and a better compost bin for next year, repairing the fence, and waiting for hot cocoa weather to return. Does anyone else miss scarves and sweaters?
