Today night and day are of equal length. The darkness will now grow until the sun is reborn on the Winter Solstice. The children and I decorated our Autumnal Equinox altar yesterday and talked about plans of apple picking and leaf piles. Tomorrow we are having friends over to do more celebrating and on Sunday I’m entering my first apple pie contest.
Funnily enough, it was quite warm today and didn’t really feel like Autumn at all. According to the weather forecast it will turn cooler and cloudier now as we move into Fall. Despite myself, I’m looking forward to sweaters, fall leaves and mulled cider. Welcome Autumn!
