Fall has well and truly arrived! Our temperature dropped over twenty degrees in one day.
So this weekend before any more erratic weather arrived I took a minute between baking bread and sweets to enjoy a cup of tea and a few magazines.
Don’t you just love sitting with a breeze wafting by, the falling leaves sailing gently to the ground and the faint smell of a wood fire burning?
I loved it! It was so peaceful and just what I have been longing for all of these long, hot summer months.
I am looking forward to a few more weeks of these temps and time to take a minute to enjoy the fall color before all of the leaves blow off the trees.
Tell me, what is your favorite part of Fall? In addition to the change in weather, do you think it is our change in attitude? A general slowing down and our bodies perhaps getting ready to hibernate after the frenetic pace of summer?
Whatever it is, I think we can all use a little rest after the extreme heat, crazy fires, droughts, hurricanes and any other thing that Mother Nature has thrown our way these past months.
After a few weeks of this we can all begin the preparation for lots of family time and holiday celebrations. I am looking forward to that too.
I realize this post is not really about anything, but sometimes real life is just about enjoying the simple pleasures.
Thank you for the Birthday wishes for both my mother and husband, your kind comments meant a lot to both of them and to me.
Enjoy your day!
