It’s turned into autumn here, at least for the remainder of this week. Temperatures fell into the 30s last night. I brought my plants in yesterday and, more importantly, changed out the bed to my winter linens. Stasia seemed to know what was happening and stayed close while I washed our blankies. She loves her purple blankie and snuggled right into it as soon as it was on the bed. It’s the best sign of the change of seasons here. She stops sleeping on the blankie when it warms in the spring and starts looking for it when it gets frosty in the fall. And me, too. I snuggle into my own down blankie at this time of year and I rather hate to give it up in the spring.
