Autumn, with its cool breezes and colorful hues, is the perfect time to prepare for long gray winters . Take it all in like a squirrel chucking away nuts. Allow the cares of summer to slip into low gear as you pursue activities that will keep you indoors. Make sure there is a cozy chair in front of the fireplace, a stack of books ready for reading, and a tea set that calls your name on a regular basis.
Sort out your recipes in advance so that autumn will be a glorious time of celebration with family and friends. Prepare jams and shortbread cookies for adult Halloween baskets. Enjoy autumn's cleansing and celebration modes. It truly is a harvest time of blessings." Freda M. Chaney, The Chaney Manor B & B
