we are all different colours

It's been two days of wet, windy, grey weather.

When I peeped outside this morning and saw the sun (the sun!) shining down through the remaining leaves and skipping across the surface of the river, it was all I could do not to run outside and shout.

Hello! Where have you been??

Today we'll go out in the wind and the sun and play in all that flash and arresting autumn-tide until the kids smell like toasty crunchy leaves themselves, and then we'll sneak back in for warm milk

and maybe a cooky.

Days like this are so alive.

Sounds like our normal weather got delivered to you by mistake the past couple of days! We've had snow. Snow! Before Halloween!
