I feel it...
Fall is in the air! The thermometer still says 30, but it somehow feels like 20 or 25. The air has a definite nip to it which means that summer is nearly over. Rosie and Melissa think so as well, as they've traded their sun frocks for hand knit woollens.
I've been busy preparing the children for the school year and am trying to get some more garden time in. At the moment, my time is needed both indoors and out, so I'm struggling just a bit to balance it all. Today was a purge of the younger children's bedroom in order to assess what is needed for the coming season change. Fortunately, after some tidying and sorting, not much. I took full advantage of the cleaned up space and steam cleaned the carpet in there. My, was it dirty! It feels SO good to have that room in order after a summer of neglect. Funny how a good clean clears the head.

Meanwhile, Paige has been busy baking up whole wheat peanut butter dog biscuits. It was getting dark, but she wanted a picture of her hard work so please forgive the horrible lighting. Paige loves to bake and regularly tells me of her plans to own a world famous bakery. I believe her and I can't wait for that :)
