Can You Smell That?

I love this time of year.... Everything is cooling off, the leaves are turning and we spend our Saturdays in the woods..... Ok, I probably love every season... Spring everything comes back and smells so new and there is the promise of new life, Summer.... ah, Summer..... The sun, the warmth, how could you not love summer? Autumn when everything cools off and the crisp smell returns to the air. And winter.... The first snowfall is always gorgeous. Everything is so clean and white and beautiful. I love winter.... until about January 15 or so, but, unfortunately winter doesn't end then. At least not in THIS state. But, I digress... Back to Fall..... The colors of the leaves are so gorgeous! And last night when we opened the window it was so refreshing.... Close your eyes and breath in.... Can't you smell it? The damp earth, the apples, the fallen leaves, the sawdust and the cool breeze? And this is how we spend our weekends in the fall.... Sure, it is hard work, but we stay nice and cozy all winter long and there is something so rewarding about waking up Sunday morning and having that slight ache in your muscles to remind you that you FINALLY got that work out that you have been talking about doing for months.

I'm sure you do.... How does winter in February sound?? :) And nope, it is the same one I've had for a couple years now.... I love it when they turn out so well!!! Makes you want to be here, doesn't it? :) (I'm probably not helping here...... Kiss the boys for me, I guess. Make the big one hug you tight for me.)
