'I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again." Lewis Carroll
We're back from a long weekend at the beach where we enjoyed what might be the last days of summer. After swimming every afternoon last week, today is cold and rainy and it suddenly feels more like Winter than Autumn. Whilst I'm sad to see the long days end I'm also looking forward to some snug time... oh and perhaps a chance to finish painting the exterior of the house (which I avoided in the summer heat)... sadly sleeping til summer won't be an option.
