Summer is definitely over. There is a distinct chill in the air in the morning, and every day when we get up we notice the sky has gone one shade darker. The days are not so long anymore, and we are pondering whether or not to turn the heating on.
But still, we are being blessed with gorgeous, sunny days. The sun is of course not as hot, but winter jackets are only a distant possibility. On those days, Second Daughter and I like to head off to a forest or a park.
Last week we engaged into one of our favourite autumnal activities: chestnut collecting! We came back with a big bag, and they have been used to decorate our home.
Of course, Second Daughter kept some for her craft projects. So far she has made spiders out of them with her friends.
I wonder what will come next?
