This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.

My bedroom still looks like Summer is going on outside the windows. There is no special warm throw across the bed, to invite a cozy nap or a warm spot while reading ..
I have to do something about that . Today was quite chilly and the days to come will only get colder. Winter is here.
I was tired of summer. Long , long days that were too warm, too much sun, too much trying to avoid the sun, uncomfortable walks in parks with panting warm pups .. it was enough, time to put it away for a few months and have some Fall and Winter.
Fall has been fabulous. There are still leaves on the trees, many golden or brown but it is not bare and forlorn yet. .. but suddenly, it is cold.
Winter cold.

Winter ...
"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you....
In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."
