Signs of Autumn's Approach

:: squirrels burying walnuts in the backyard

:: giant cobwebs pinned to every tree along the riverbank, each dotted with as many as 10 spiders

:: sun so low in the sky as to render our north-facing deck a chilly place to hang out

:: grasshoppers everywhere

:: football and soccer cleats stacked in front of the door

:: cool nights, pleasantly warm days

:: thoughts of returning to that wool sweater I started knitting last winter

:: no more fans blasting me as I try to sleep

:: soup for dinner

:: galas and honey crisps at the market this morning
