Sweet Smells of September

cowWhen we lived in northern New Hampshire, the best smells of the beginning of the Fall season were State Fair food that mingled with the odor of 4-H cows and sheep. It was a homey scent, until the demolition derby started. Fumes and smoke were not my favorites smells, but my kids loved that part of the annual fair program. fireplace and cat

Here in North Carolina, people begin using their fireplaces to ward off the chilly evenings. The delicious aroma of burning wood takes me back to my days as a volunteer firefighter.

I am packing for our annual trip back to New Hampshire where we will meet up with other family members to volunteer at the NH Highland Games & Festival. I cannot wait to smell the morning mist over the White Mountains, the aroma of hot cider and Scottish shortbread cookies, and haggis. 😦  Find out more about the festival HERE

    Your description brought back memories of visits to my grandmother’s farm in upstate New York. Those magnificent mornings, when the windows were opened and we kids watched as the cows were herded out to the fields, are memories forever in my mind. Have fun on your trip to New Hampshire.
