Fall....

"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."
Elizabeth Lawrence



The changing season makes all of life seem fresh and delightful and ushers in so many of my favorite things:

1. After a sultry summer, who can resist the pleasure of a cool autumn morning? or the delightful feeling of waking up with your noise slightly chilled while getting to cuddle under the warm cozy blankets?

2. What signals fall better than the smell of pumpkin bread or apple pie wafting from the oven? Not only that, but it's time once again for soups with piping hot bread just pulled from the oven. Hurrah!

3. Socks and sweaters and slippers. Especially when the sweater's on Rosalind and makes her about as round as she is tall. ;)

4. Taking refreshing walks beneath the vibrantly colored canopy of leaves and watching as the leaves fall one by one and create a lovely crunchy carpet of yellow and red and brown.

5. Hot drinks. Even a latte didn't sound all that great during the hot summer months. That has changed quickly changed! And a latte with a book in hand-- delightful!

I love the fall! At times I think it is my favorite time of year.:) I love wearing sweaters, playing in the leaves (still:)), taking walks through the woods, eating hot soup and bread, and the list goes on and on. I look forward to seeing a picture of Rosalie out in the fall leaves.:)

Reading your list makes me want to slough off the rest of my to do list and relax the rest of the day.

What a lovely post! I love all these things. I was reluctant to let go of summer, but now that fall is fully here I am loving it.

Oh Anna it all sounds so delicious and delightful but I can only imagine it cuz we're sweltering here in Southern California. I'm looking forward to being in the Seattle Area at Thanksgiving so I can feel the cold again :0)
