I like to change the painting in Ada’s room to match the tree outside her window. I noticed some yellow leaves out there, so it is time for some fall colors. It is also time to lay the girls’ rug back down on their floor. The bare wood seems to keep the house cooler in the summer. A warmer spot to sit and play is needed when the temperature drops. We turned the heat on last night for the first time, (after a call to the repair men), and I am getting out the warmer blankets this weekend. Our (first!) spring-blooming bulbs arrived in the mail yesterday from White Flower Farm. We are excited to get started on our new garden and will get the plants snuggled in the ground this weekend. I can’t seem to stop thinking about soup and pie recipes. This Cheddar Apple Pie from Gourmet is amazing. What are you doing at home to get ready for fall?
