This year for the first time I realize I am looing forward to the cooler seasons. I like the idea that it will get dark early and I will curl up toasty and warm in my favorite chair. I like that closed in, snug feeling. I like no grass to cut and no guilt that I'm not out pulling weeds. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love Halloween too - but no kids out here in the wilderness. The last 2 years I didn't decorate for Christmas. Will this year be different?
