fall equinox

A shift in sunlight, change of seasons. Greetings, fall equinox. We usher into our kitchens: pumpkin pie, fresh baked bread, homemade onion soup, hot oatmeal cookies, slow-roasted root vegetables; into our attire: gloves and mittens, layers, felted hats, wool pull-overs, thicker socks; into our evenings: hot cocoa, hot tea, quilts, alpaca/wool knitting, studying; into our yards: leaf raking, cleaning out flower and garden beds, planting winter vegetables.
