It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!


A song with the same title of this post speaks of Christmas as the most wonderful time of year. To me autumn is the best season and I have always enjoyed the month of October immensely. Our farmers markets are at their peak and it is time to make applesauce and chili sauce and tomato sauces and more.

My parents arrived in Canada this weekend after a long drive up from Mexico. I have not seen them for over two years and am looking forward to our visit. I saved much of my vacation time for the fall and am looking forward to a change in routine.

The change will include a break from blogging until the beginning of November or so. There will be plenty of time in the long winter months to chronicle my autumn adventures and more.

See you later!

  8. Ruth...What a wonderful time of year for a visit from Mom and Dad. This season always has a sense of quietness, not to mention beauty. Time spent with ones parents is more precious then ever. Enjoy it to the fullest!

  9. What a lovely time to have vacation and travel! Being on the academic year, I got to hit Arizona at the end of June. For one who likes sweater weather...well, you get the picture. One of my favorite fall trips was when I went to a conference in Vermont. I'd always wanted to see "New England fall," and while it wasn't at its height, I still got the gist of it.

    Have a lovely time!
