It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Spring Cleaning..., Yuk!
Having the carpet cleaned this morning so I may not be back until tomorrow. What a project this is. All the furniture has to be moved and you know how it is when you move something that has been in one place for a while: Dust bunnies and dead bugs prevail.
