Full-On Autumn

It's officially very Autumn-y around here.  Pumpkin and applesauce canning.  Halloween costume-making.  Heat on when we wake each morning.  I wore my winter coat the other night.  There's no denying that the wheel of the year is turning.

And of course, green tomato salsa is a dead giveaway.

The salsa turned out very dry.  I suspect that our paste tomatoes were lower in moisture than average.  The salsa will need some love as we open each jar.

As a lifetime lover of Summer, I can't help but feel some sadness at this time of year.  Although Fall is lovely, I seriously dread the Winter to follow.  I do not like being cold.  For me, one of the best parts of being pregnant was always being warm enough.  I do not like the danger of driving in the snow and ice.  I do not like the dinginess of the landscape.  I was not designed for Winter.

I was happy to wake this morning to sunshine after several days of clouds.  It's a chilly sunshine, but I'll take it.
