Change of season...
For me, winter arrives the week before Thanksgiving. It's time to get serious about finishing up handmade Christmas projects, gather with the family for Thanksgiving, and think about decorating the house for the holidays.
It's also when our weather usually turns cold, and I start thinking about frosty mornings and snow falling, and people around here start getting excited about the beginning of ski season.
And it's time to swap my composition book cover for this one, full of snowmen and trees and stars. It puts a reminder of the season squarely in front of me, every day.
