Okay--don't get me wrong, I love summer, I'm very grateful for it. It's warm and bright and...summery. It's when I get to grow my garden, the daylight hours are long, there's no nasty ice to worry about, etc. But I can't say that I'll miss the extreme heat--especially when the air conditioner breaks. And the flies and mosquitos. And did I mention the extreme heat?
For all of you who dread the coming of fall, give it another chance...pretty please? It's a wondrous season, really! The leaves are turning, there's a refreshing nip in the air, and the atmosphere is heavy with mischief and magic.
So, this is my official welcome to the Autumnal Equinox. May yours be full of wonder!

The Kansas State Fair is going on right now, and I took some time today to have a look around. I must admit, they don't have quite as much craftacularness as I'd like to see, but I can't complain. I was thrilled when I saw a lady painting yarn! And then there were the alpacas and the sheep shearing. And some extra treats on the side. It was a fun day.
