The temperatures are cooling and the leaves are falling . . . it can only mean one thing. . . fall has arrived. I don't mind the fall season, it's what follows fall --- winter! Winter = SNOW!!!! Not my favorite thing . . . but then, I remember, I DO live in Minnesota so what should I expect!
Twenty years ago, you would have heard me saying things like, "Nobody in their right mind moves to Minnesota!"; "We're talking frozen tundra --- god forsaken country!" (Keep in mind, I lived in Virginia Beach, Virginia at the time.) But then I met my husband -- he was retiring after 20 years in the United States Navy and planned on moving back to his home state of Minnesota. Little did I know that four months after meeting him, we would get married and move to Minnesota! I've gotten used to the cold weather and snow (kind of); I'm just not an "outdoorsy" person, so . . . when the snow does start flying and sticking to the ground, I'll just wrap up in a warm quilt on my couch and enjoy the beauty of it all knowing I'm gonna stay warm and dry!
In the meantime, I'm headed to the basement to work on customer quilts.
