Autumn Treasures

Greetings from The Porch!

Up here in the northwest summer seems like it just arrived and yet our clear summer morning are now tinged with the crispness of autumn. The lake still shimmers under cloudless skies, wild huckleberries are ripe for the picking, gardeners are thrusting zucchini at anyone who will take them and football tailgate parties are the place to be on Friday nights.

Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present Generation
to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make good use of it.
If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven,
that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it.

~ John Adams
2nd President of the United States (1797-1801)


Time to turn off the computer and lose the cell phone. Be encouraged by the bounty fall brings and hunt for small kitchen deocrating themes, dine alfresco, set the last outdoor tablecloths in fall colors or hang cozy fall window curtains. Even a pretty dishtowels can freshen up the kitchen.
