The nights have begun drawing in, it seems to happen so fast in the Autumn that it takes our bodies a little time to adjust. I find myself turning on the lamps in the living room and looking at the clock, at 7pm the lights are on already and we’re beginning to snuggle down for the evening. By around 9pm I’m thinking about going to bed, until I realise that it’s not nearly as late as I thought it was. It was only a few months ago that we were still playing outside in the light at 9pm.
We enjoy it though, long summer days are always fun but so are the cozy autumn evenings that we are getting at the moment in Heidelberg. Especially when we can go for a walk at 5 or 6pm, just before the cold wind picks up, and catch the low sun and orange sky casting long, dark shadows and bright highlights, Mikey jumping in and out of the shadows yelling “Sunshine! No Sunshine! Sunshine! No Sunshine!”.
Today I am making a leaf garland with the remainder of the leaves that Mikey and I brought in last week. Mikey going between helping me and playing in the living room, pretending to be a falling feather complete with feathers plucked from his couch cushion and invented sound effects. I think that if a feather made sounds when it was falling, that is exactly what it would sound like.
