Feels Like Autumn

The trees around here are still quite green - a hint of color here and there, but you wouldn't suspect that Autumn begins next week.  Cooler temperatures at night are the first reminder that Summer is departing for another year.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at the Madison County Historical Society's Craft Days last weekend.  My kids enjoyed coming along and were a huge help in setting up and breaking down.  We missed our favorite food vendor - eclairs and half-moon cookies, but still found plenty to eat!

And further thanks to Lynn De Orio of the Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum who invited me to demonstrate handspinning at their site.  There are several museums along the Erie Canal, each representing a different aspect of history along this important waterway.  Their site was where barges were built and repaired, and the work that has gone into the buildings is truly amazing. 

Now it's time to get into that Autumn groove - Cross-Country meets start up this week for Alex, Alison just secured a part in the drama club's production of "Oliver Twist", apples will soon be harvested by my neighbor (meaning it's time to bake!), and the dyepots will be cooking up deeper colors.

Enjoy these sunny, crisp days!
