The Shimmering Leaves of Fall
I look forward to Fall, especially after a hot summer. To smell and feel the crispness in the air, and the mustiness of the damp earth warms my soul. Where I live, the leaves don’t usually begin to change until after the first snow, so that’s usually our first clue that Fall is coming. That little snowy blast this year was actually in August! It sounds crazy, but I enjoy our unique unexpected weather! You just never know what’s going to happen in the Sierra’s. One of my favorite memories with my grandkids was raking up leaves into huge piles and then throwing them in the air and lifting our faces to watch them float down. We could play for many joyous hours in our colorful confetti! Tiring of our fun, we often gathered our favorite leaves, spread them all around the dining table and pressed some between clear contact-paper crafting unique placemats. Ohhh, add a bit of soup to that picture and we have a perfect fall day! Enjoy this Fall season, for Christmas is just around the corner!
