Signs of Autumn

This week one of my children said "I smell fall!" and the others agreed. We have definitely seen some signs that summer is coming to a close. The temperature this morning when I got up to have some quiet time and coffee with Bob was a crisp 13 degrees Celsius and tonight it is getting even cooler!

I love, love, love this time of year! It makes me want to bake lots and lots of pumpkin bread and apple cakes or muffins. I also love slowly getting out a sweater or two, just to have handy for those chilly nights or early mornings.

I'm sure summer is not quite over yet, but I am enjoying these early signs that fall is on its way!

Our first trip to the apple farm with our Christine...

Emma has already made two apple pies for the freezer and has plans for more! We look forward to having warm, delicious pie in the cold of winter!



  1. Fall is my favorite season and I look forward to it for the same reasons you love. I can't imagine 13 degrees though! I am so ready for it to cool down, down here in the deep south!

  2. Jen, I hope you get some cooler temps soon! We've actually been in a heat wave the past few days, so I'm looking forward to our temps cooling down again, too! Big hugs, friend!
