It is Really Fall in Idaho

Happy first day of fall and if you are into BIG words...autumnal equinox!
I have always loved the Fall and Spring Equinox because my kids and I would take a raw egg and stand it on its end...Pretty darn cool!
Today my counters are covered with canning "stuff" and the kids are gone, but I still enjoy thinking about it.
Today I was driving to Oakley to listen to Mike Ramsdell, the author of "A Train To Potevka" speak to the high school students. I was looking at all the fields that are done being harvested and the ground is tiled for winter, and lo and behold on Mt. Harrison is SNOW!!!!! Yes, I said the "S" word...SNOW!!! Yep, it really is Fall in Idaho!

I tried to stand an egg on end today but it didn't work. Is there a trick to it? I must have had a deprived childhood because I haven't heard about the egg trick until today when someone told me about it at the gym! Mimi

I have found the best time to stand your egg on its end is when it is near the time of the equinox.
We will all be waiting for Spring when we can try!

This is the only time of year I miss living in UT. It's still 100 degrees here in AZ, and I'm having a hard time believing it really is fall.

Thanks for entering my contest. I see your name often on the blogs I visit, and it's fun to stop by yours. You have a beautiful family!
