I am over my end of summer melancholy, and looking forward to cooler, darker days. I woke up this morning to a chilly (53º F), rainy day, and Tom and I couldn't wait to get the woodstove started. Just yesterday, he and our son brought wood up to the terrace. This is the first fire we've had in a while, and I so love it. You can see the kitties are all set for the day, but Soot will have to move over so I can sit beside him and read Pardonable Lies.
