Breaking Fall

Know what’s going on in C-Town?

FALL BREAK!!! (Kids and teachers are thrilled.) When I was a kid, we got out for State Teachers’ Meetings, but it was really fall break. Now they don’t even pretend. It’s just time to get away. 🙂

Who cares which it is?

I love fall, don’t you?

Last year at this time, I left town. Grist MillRecognize that? I’ll give you another hint–

The wheel that turns the millGive up? It’s Wareagle! The coolest arts and crafts festival (biggest I know of) anywhere.

I love going. I love shopping. I love seeing what’s hot in the A & C world.

made from orange horseshoes. Now I just need to find an orange horse.

Wareagle is where I found Matilda.

She still has the same sweet personality as the day I found her. (Her cat doesn’t make a mess, either.) 🙂

But Wareagle isn’t the only reason I love autumn. I love the cooler temperatures. And pumpkins.

Is Autumn your favorite season, too? What’s the best part for you?
