Chilly nights, crisp autumn days. Sweaters and toques abound. Take the kids to the pumpkin patch or the apple orchard to plunder natures bounty.

For many people this is a time of intense effort, harvesting the hard work of the entire year, from pruning, planting and weeding, this last quarter of the year is when the results are manifest.

Maybe at the end of your hard days work of harvesting, you can sit by your fire, give thanks and reflect on the magnificent abundance that sustains each of us.
