The seasons

"While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease." Genesis 8:22

I am trying to keep this promise in mind as I sit here shivering through yet another chilly May day! It seems that the warmth of summer is taking it's time this year, although I am sure when it is +37c and I am melting I will long for the coolness of today.

My favorite season is fall. I love the warmish coolness of the days (if that makes any sense) and the smells of the earth preparing itself for sleep. The autumn leaves, the pumpkins, the ripe, harvested vegetables and fruits all make me feel so cozy and happy. I know many people prefer spring, or summer, but fall is my time of year.

Every year, we rake a huge pile of leaves and we all have a blast jumping in, throwing them at each other, stuffing them down shirts, and rolling around in them. Then we burn the leaves~ what a homey scent that is!

Poor Kyle is home sick today :( He was ill yesterday aswell, with quite a fever. He is feeling better today than he did yesterday, but still pretty warm. I hope he mends quickly!
