And the days are shorter...

Today was such a different feeling with the dark nightime so quickly arriving at 5:30…
I love when we get that extra hour to sleep in the morning, but it always feels so unexpected when suddenly it is dark before dinner is even ready. Part of me likes it, the rhythm of the day blends more with the odd schedules we humans tend to make for ourselves… I like the kids heading to bed and the night feeling deep and ready to rest in. It is too hard to make bedtimes when summer light is still dancing off the walls at 8:30 in the evening. 
Tonight we built a fire outside and ate our dinner in the still warmish evening air…
We lit the jack'o lanterns and I felt Autumn's arrival… 
Yes I know it happend quite a while back, but tonight it felt real…

                             Happy Autumn and Winter's Coming ~ Marica
