Autumn….oh yes, I forgot the best part….Autumn means re-activating the idle wood stove in the barn kitchen, curls of grey smoke hanging in the cold still sky. The sweet smell of contented cows ( really,..they have , at least one end of them!!) Horses happy to be warm and dry, wickering gently at the sound of your voice. Cats curled up on dry horse rugs. Loving hugs on a frosty morning. The cosy warmth of a crackling wood stove, steaming woollen gloves drying, the smell of freshly brewed coffee permeating the air and warmed Cosco chocolate muffins for the 10 o’clock break time. Autumn means spicy mulled wine served in coffee mugs….. mmmm, you know what….come to think about it, maybe Autumn isn’t all that bad. It’s got to be better than Winter, right ????
Time to go, the rain is falling, the spiders are weaving their wondrous webs, the pond is overflowing and it’s cold. Guess it’s time to start thinking about Christmas !!!!
Good night, take care, keep safe, M
