Rhinebeck is over, the leaves are disappearing from the trees, and even though today it's 15C, the forecast is for snow on the weekend. I have that melancholy feeling that comes at this time of the year when I know I'm saying goodbye to warmth and brightness for a long, long time.
Dark days are coming as we roll toward the winter solstice, but I have a few things to brighten the dreaded November days to come. Over the next few days I'll be getting ready to teach at the Wool and Wine Retreat in Prince Edward County. Off there tomorrow to drop off some items for the attendees' goodie bags.
