Indian Summer in Connecticut...

...when the days feel like they're standing still. The sun warm on your skin, made all the more precious knowing this particular glorious weekend could be the last until spring.
My mother is very ill at the moment. An unsuccessful cancer surgery - she is presently in ICU at a local hospital and my days are filled with work, kids, doctors & the hospital. Needing a reprieve, my husband and I head out to the Berkshires of Northwestern Connecticut. Just a simple road trip, jumping on Route 44 and heading west. Indian Summer was in all it's glory.

And into Collinsville, Connecticut - an old mill town.

Another favorite cemetery of mine...






Like it? It's FOR SALE in New Hartford, Connecticut.

So I'm in rainy Chicago and longing for an Indian Summer day like that. So glad to see your name pop up as an update in Google Reader, I've missed you here in Blogland and in real life. Hugs to your mom. Let's have a visit when I get back.

I'll take that house in New Hartford! I took a mini road trip into Bucks County, PA yesterday and it was so lovely. Winding roads and lovely little bridges crossing the Delaware River steeped in the ruch colors of fall.

My thoughts are with your mom and your family. I know how tough that can be.
