these golden days

In the past few days I've noticed that although the night comes so soon now (it's dark when we sit down to eat supper) the days have been lovely and golden. Gone are the fiery reds and in their place are burnished coppers, yellow and bronze. These golden days.

    It's a very nice time of year. Warm enough to be outside a the parkin the day but I know how quickly that will come to an end. We will find ourselves inside most of the time soon. I love your photos!

    you rocked again. these pictures are gorgeous. And, no dryer? I'm impressed. Have you ever had one? How do you deal with crunchy towels?

      Ever since moving to this house 4 years ago we have not owned a dryer. I wrote about it here:

      Crunchy towels? Love em'! Nothing beats the smell of line dried laundry. And seriously hanging laundry is a pleasant chore, especially since my children do most of it (tee, hee).

        As silly as it sounds, I will miss hanging laundry up in our dining room this winter. We sold the wood stove after Glen realized while working on another local house that the timber framing could very well be going straight into our chimney. I have no idea why builders used to do things like that, but now we won't be using our chimney for wood burning anymore :.0(

    prequel to the First snow this morning! My morning commute went from fluries in Turner, to a winter wonderland by the time I hit New Gloucester & Gray. I couldn't resist pulling over and snapping a couple of photos with my cell phone. Though not near as beautiful as your camera would have captured it ~ the first snow is always beautiful, unexpected and magical. And so, It begins......Mother nature's beautiful golden gown of Autumn is shed & she has begun to don the white flanel pj's of winter, as we fall into the chill of November.

    Nice to see clothes drying on a clothes line. It gives one a chance to be out doors.

    I remember the times when it rains and had to make a dash and grab all the clothes before they got wet.
