Collecting seeds for next year...

Alex and I set about to collecting the bean seeds for the next year a few days ago. It was the last sunny day we have had. The last two days have been nothing but heavy rain on and off with light rain. It has been beautiful, but definitely fall.

The trees are starting to turn. Just in the last three days we have started to get that heavy chill in the air. The summer never got hot this year, so we have had blankets on the bed the whole summer, but just this week we have needed the down comforters and just this morning I turned the heat on for the first time this season. The time for short sleeves and sleeping under a summer quilt are done.

I loved this post. The photo of the basket is gorgeous with all those pale bean in it! Your kids are beautiful! Do you mind if I ask where you are? It's still hot here.

We are in Olympia, WA... it is cold and misserable here already... we didn't really have a summer this year. Perhaps four days of over 90's weather, maybe 4 good weeks? Maybe. It sucked. It makes the winter all that much more depressing with the rain we get here. *sigh*... but I am hoping good warm food helps.
