Falling For Fall
From that first time in late August, when I notice the newly filtered look to the sun. The slight chill in the air in the mornings and evenings in September. To that one day in October, when suddenly leaves look like flames.
The scent of smoke in the air from indoor fireplaces instead of outside barbecues.
I'm not a fan of cold weather, but there's something special about the fall. Apple cider suddenly appears in grocery stores. Along with winter squash, pumpkins, and eggnog. Although, you can make your own eggnog.
Last weekend, I begrudgingly switched my closet from summer to winter. Pulling out my warm clothes, blankets, and flannel sheets. Then putting away my shorts, tank tops, and flip flops. The seasons changed again. From out of the summer blue.
Then Halloween and that weekend when we fall back. For those of us in the United States, that's this weekend. We all get an extra hour! I'm not sure what I'll do with mine this year. But I'm going to try and make it really count. What about you?
black cat always wonders around my neighborhood. I choose to believe that when it crosses my path, that it's very good luck.
Enjoy your weekend everyone! And Happy Halloween!
