Prepping for Autumn

I tend to get "the blues" every autumn since the girls started school. I know, it has been 10 years, but I think it is a combination of things... the end of lots of things: summer, freedom, beautiful weather, fresh berries, warmth, long days, bathing suits, shorts and sleeveless tops....
Instead we have much cooler weather, frosts, ice, school headaches and shorter days....we move indoors for tennis and get out our winter coats.

There are things I do enjoy about fall, like the beautiful fall colors, the leaves on the trees, the pumpkins and squashes, apple pies and crisps. But fall is such a short season here in New England. We get into frozen evenings and black ice all too quickly and stay there for way too long. Getting up early to check the weather and the school closings.
