Yes, yes......I know, I KNOW!! It's not officially Fall yet.....BUT... I caught a bit of a wafting scent of it this morning...... I did! You all may not have been so fortunate to catch it tip-toeing around your woods yet, but when I went out early this morning, it was so blessedly cool. The air actually was a bit crisp....a bit of a nip. It's COMING!!! I know it is!
You crazy girl, you may be asking, why are you so excited about Fall??
Well, say I, isn't it obvious?!? Fall is IT......my favorite time of year!! My birthday is in the Fall (just because I don't count them doesn't mean I can't enjoy them).......Halloween is in the Fall (the significance goes without saying)......the leaves are gorgeous...........pumpkins are ready for carving..........craft shows abound!! What is not to love about Fall?
My ultimate Fall day would be to curl up on the comfy sofa, hot cup of mulled cider in hand, and watch the changing leaves as they drift past the window. My quilt tucked around my legs, a wood fire in the fireplace and NPR playing Vivaldi (or Loreena McKennitt on the CD player).
It's corny, I know, but GOSH what a season!! So......if anyone out there is reading this, I would LOVE to know what your favorite part of Fall is. What floats your boat, what lights your fire, what shakes the (turning) leaves on your tree?! Eh? Let me know!
