Last Day of Summer, First Day of Autumn, Acting Like Winter

Merry Mabon! May your harvest be all that you need.

Yesterday was the last day of Summer. It snowed on and off all day. We even shut all the windows, finally. Today is the first day of Fall. Here's what our mountain looked like this morning, snow even down below the tree line. I pulled out the woolies, a pair of hand knit socks and an Aran sweater to go out of the house this morning.

Due to this extreme change in the weather (I mean to tell ya, we were in shorts and tank tops last week) I was in the mood for a soup and bread combination for the supper last night. To that end, I made New England Style Clam Chowder from scratch with Baking Powder Biscuits, also from scratch. YUM!

The soup looks so yummy!!!! I made soup today and cake too---and ate too much and did not care!
Today has been like summer, complete with thunderstorms and humidity and just plain icky heat.
I want COOL weather and yes, I'll take your snow...... ;)

Brrrr! I much prefer the weather we are having for the first day of autumn. It is nearly 90! I can't believe you have snow! That is no way to ease into fall. Good thing you have all those great socks to wear, and that food looks delicious.

Your mountains look so beautiful and your air so crisp and clean! I hope it's not going to be a long winter for you. Perhaps the warm weather will be back before it fades for the year. I hope so.
