Happy First Fleece!

Long-time readers of my blog will know that every year I celebrate two self-declared holidays: First Birk (in the spring) and First Fleece (in the fall).

A cool front that's swept across the Midwest this week has brought First Fleece upon us earlier than usual (it's not even technically fall yet), but nevertheless I was delighted this morning to go into my closet and pull out my trusty black fleece pullover to ward off the early morning chill as I left for work. This momentous act, prompted by the crispness that has returned to the air, the subtle change that always gets me giddy for autumn, is that which makes today First Fleece.

So, Happy First Fleece everyone!
