Summer in New England is breathtakingly beautiful. Sparkling blue lakes beckon us.

Then there are the farm stands with the glorious ripe tomatoes and incredible sweet corn. I could go on and on. Summer is amazing here.
But it's also HOT. And it can be dreadfully humid. We have had lots of that type of weather this summer. I just don't enjoy extreme heat and humidity. It goes without saying that we don't have air conditioning. So -- although fall means winter will inevitably come -- I am looking forward to fall. Even though more hot weather is in the forecast, the past couple of mornings have been cold and crisp. Fall's coming!
