Good morning! Just a few more days and the curtain closes on summer, September 22 at 4:44 pm according to the Farmers Almanac. It is always good to have detailed information like this, just in case you find yourself on Jeopardy or something.
As I mentioned yesterday I am ready for Fall, OK beyond ready, and cannot wait to relax and savor long days by the fire, the crunch of leaves underfoot, the crisp air in the late afternoon and early morning and of course all of the comforts of home.
Anyone that has followed this blog for any length of time knows that my beverage of choice 365 days a year is hot chocolate, I enjoy it if it 97 degrees and hot or 32 and freezing.

But I do enjoy other drinks in the Fall, tea, ciders, Chai latte, wassail and the occasional coffee drink sitting around the fire chatting with family and friends. There are a plethora of drinks and recipes out there, many of which were new to me. Of course Pinterest is filled with delightful recipes as our Martha Stewart, Country Living and more.

Tell me what drinks bring you comfort on a cool or chilly day? Do you have a favorite or do you return again and again to the same things?
