Harvested fields and silhouette trees...

"How silently they tumble down and come to rest upon the ground to lay a carpet, rich and rare, beneath the trees without a care, content to sleep, their work well done, colours gleaming in the sun.
At other times they wildly fly until they nearly reach the sky. Twisting, turning through the air till all the trees stand stark and bare. Exhausted, drop to earth below to wait, like children, for the snow."
-Elsie N. Brady
"When the bold branches bid farewell to rainbow leaves-welcome wool sweaters."
-B. Cybrill

"The fires burn, the kettles sing, and earth sinks to rest until next Spring."
-Elizabeth Coatsworth
The fields are now harvested and the last of the leaves have blown in a rainy wonder. The horizon outdoors is barren but beautiful. There is something so wondrous about the trees looking like silhouettes while you continually reflect on the beautiful things. Just the sight of the harvested land allows you to muse. Autumn truly is a season for musing. It's a time to think and relish and love. To me it seems to be almost a taste of what wonderful December will bring. For December is certainly a month of love and warmth. 
My days and weekends have been wonderful. My most wonderful friends and I sit by the fire, read magazines, talk for hours on end, make late night suppers listening to St. Vincent, share apples at midnight, plan sleepovers for December to watch Christmas movies and sleep in sleeping blankets, and take late night runs to buy ice cream listening to Hall & Oates. It is completely brilliant. 
And of course, my darling Rilla and I watched Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2 on 11.11.11. It was magical. We got chills and talked all the while of our favourite bits and which were the most beautiful scenes and costumes. Harry Potter is pure magic and wonder. 
Thanksgiving is next week and my mum and I are getting table decorations around. I've been poring over old November Country Living issue's for ideas and recipes. At night I spend time by the fire reading and dreaming and think, always, of New York City. I promise I will share with you my perfect adventures from New York very soon!
Dreaming of shopping among the bustle of Black Friday while the Christmas music plays and I purchase gifts and buy glamorous and sparkly Winter clothes.

Hope your doing wonderfully! How have your days been?
