Early Autumn

There are so many reasons I look forward to this time of the year. What are some things about early autumn that make it special for you? Mine include...

*  taking in the symphony of color on a long drive.

*  being pelted by a leaf shower on a breezy day.

*  feeling my feet putting on socks in the morning. Somehow it feels better this time of year than it does on mornings when I have to, like a summer work day, or on mornings when I know it's smart to do so, like most winter days.

I also like being at the mercy of the shifting temperatures throughout the day. Every so often, after making the necessary costume change, I'll allow my imagination free rein and pretend I'm someone else. Kind of like my own private play where I'm playing several different parts. Don't judge, OK? After all, today is Halloween.

  1. Orange food - like butternut squash, and pumpkin, and candy corn. The harvest season - pears and the last of the fall apples and all the cool weather crops. The smell of autumn. The return of soup after the summer hiatus. I love when the weather turns cool and I start wearing sweaters and fleecy jammy pants. Listening to you have fun with the kids at the door on Halloween. The feeling of expectation - like we are starting something new, which is probably a holdover from school years. Looking forward to the holidays and family times. I could go on.....
