Getting cozy (& Friday Links)

The temperatures are finally taking a dip around here. I pulled on a sweater over my pjs to watch tv the other night for the first time in months. And there’s even rain in the forecast! The mornings are dark, the farmer’s market picnics have ended for the season, and I find myself ordering red wine instead of white.

I never look forward to the end of summer, but I do really enjoy this start of fall. Aron is off to Oakland for meetings tomorrow, so the kids and I will be off on our own adventure. I haven’t decided whether I should plan some sort of adventure or make it a lazy day of crafting and playing here. I’m leaning toward the latter—it was a very full week! Sunday will be for birthday parties and dinner with friends. There’s also a chance we’ll get to help out with an olive harvest, but the rain would push that off.

Hope your weekend is a good one! Some links of note…
