As I woke this morning the window opened a bit for fresh air, a crisp breeze blew in and once again Fall is here. The geese are honking and the leaves are creeping into brilliance. My orders are stacked high for pies... Apple pie. :) I must say the aroma sweeps through the house like no other. Talk of Thanksgiving and the holidays is back and the warm smiles that come with thoughts of family gatherings and good food!
There is also a different air about Vermont as we take our hats off to the farmers, businesses schools and many families affected by Irene. As usual I am blown away by the sense of community in our State. Rather than being someone else's problem ...it is everyones charge to lend a helping hand and bring everything back to it's original state (or as close as possible) as quickly as possible. So, bravo to those who are still hanging on and bravo to those who are helping to make life in VT happen anew. VT is up and running and better than ever! Enjoy the beauty of the season!!!
