On My Mind: A Change in the Seasons...

Today I spent some time wandering Blogland, visiting and experiencing new blogs. Many blogs from the Northern Hemisphere are currenlty bursting with pictures and stories of spring, whilst here in the Flinders Ranges the first month of autumn is drawing to a close. Already summer feels like the distant past, even though our last warm day was felt barely a week ago. So quick have the seasons changed! This past week has seen cool days sprinkled with rain showers, followed by chilly, damp nights.
It was on my mind all day: Having spent last night in an uncomfortable chill, I was loathed to repeat it, so when we arrived home this evening SJ stoked the fire in the dining room for the first time in over six months. The result: A cold night spent inside a cozy warm home, with each of us taking our turn to stand in front of the fireplace to soak up its comforting warmth.
This is a Friday photo feature from Down to Earth that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to us sharing our lives through these photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships. Your photo should show something at home that you're thinking about TODAY.
To take part, all you have to do is post a photo, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to Down to Earth. Please write a new post, don't link to an older one. When your photo is published, go to Down to Earth and add a comment , with a link to your blog photo.

  1. Even though we are in "Spring" here I had to turn the heat on just now as we are getting a bit of a chill this afternoon. The first fire of the Autumn season is always so wonderful.


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I really appreciate any suggestions, feedback and comments you may like to share, so please don't be afraid to leave them. It'd be wonderful to see you return again!
