Fall is my second favorite month

Posted by Lorac Monday, 7 October 2019

 I do enjoy the cooler temps and love the colour but it also brings the realization that winter is just a few short weeks away. I dont care for winter. I wouldn't want to live where there was no winter as I do love the look and smell of a fresh snow, but I dislike the heating costs, the slippery roads and the early dark skies!

As I walk amongst the colour changes, I have memories of falls of the past . When the kids where kids, not the adults they have become, canine family members from the past and feline ones too! Even earlier memories. Bits of my own childhood come to  mind. I remember getting home after school as fast as we could so we could still enjoy the soon to be gone daylight.  Coming home to a hot chocolate and pumpkin pie for after dinner desert!

Walking into town on Saturdays and the smell of burning leaves at the ends of the driveways. Finding chestnuts to make knockers out of . Wearing the lumber jackets as the air was cool in the evenings...and the smell of that first frost! 

Did you know Sumac can be eaten or jellied/jammed, cooked with chicken.? I didn't!
 I haven't tried it yet. Its on the bucket list lol

I stopped at the edge of town today at a spot I know always has nice colour. A small part of the Credit River. The river became known as Missinnihe Eastern Ojibway: "trusting creek") to the Mississaguas First Nation who met annually with white traders there.
The origins of the English name come from the time when French fur traders supplied goods to the native people in advance (on credit) against furs which would be delivered the following spring. It was known as the Rivière au Crédit. The trading post was set up at the mouth of the river, in Port Credit in the early 18th century.

Of course what is a walk, with out my pup River

As the sun sets on another day....until next time, adieu!

  3. Summer is my favorite. But, it's hard to beat the colors at this time of year.
