One of the best things about working with children [and there are many] is that one's spirit stays young and enthusiastic ... at least most of the time ... and decorating for ALL the various holidays and seasons is very much a part of that young-at-heart mind set. Here is a photo of a banner I will be posting on my office door starting this week ... it began life as a Silver Needle Secret Needle Night kit ... I totally agree with the sentiment ... Autumn Awes Me.
Autumn has always been my favorite season. I love the colors, the briskness in the air, apple cider, cinnamon donoughts, falling leaves crunching underfoot, trees revealing their essential structure, the harvest moon, the sky colors unduplicated in any other season ... in short, the whole package. It's rather funny that the SNN series on the seasons pretty much echoes my feelings: Winter does "snow" me; Spring does "bug" me, and while Summer doesn't always "suit" me, it does bring with it a lighter work load and a more livable work schedule.
