welcoming autumn

hello again! i have had many blogging intentions, but our busier than usual schedule has kept me away. it was a good break. so many great things! we are now embracing the cool weather. knitting projects have begun, and our summer house projects are coming to an end. 

this past week we have had fun visiting the autumn farms. we had a lovely walk through the chestnut farm this past weekend; although, we had hoped to gather more chestnuts. we only came home with six! the lack of rain this summer season has not been good for the crops in these parts, and i think we were a little too ambitious - the trees seemed to be holding on to quite a few pods. next week we plan to try again with better luck.  we have been twice to wells orchard, where we first gathered apples, and then pumpkins. suki tried out a tire swing for the first time, and loved it - of course. 

this afternoon our neighbor girls came over to drink hot cider and decorate pumpkins. 
so fun!
