The first post of an embryonic blog....

Today is chilly and damp, with a constant drizzle that makes me want to go back to bed.  Or at least back to the sofa with a throw, the dachshund, a mug of coffee, and a good book.  Summer left the New River Valley early this year, but hopefully we'll have a long, drawn out fall.  I'm looking forward to warm sunny days followed by crisp nights, red maples blazing in the sunlight, bonfires with roasted marshmallows, and piles of pumpkins.  The rain we're getting right now will soften up the soil in the garden, making my fall landscaping chores that much easier.  If I can just get myself out from under the throw and off the sofa, that is.
