Bring It On
I am beginning to feel a bit of fall in the air in the mornings and in the evenings. The inbetween part, though, is still warm enough that I think it premature to put on a sweater and try to breathe in the crispness of autumn. But I do it anyway! It's my favorite time of year and I don't want to miss a second of it. Maybe if I put on a sweater when it's still 80 degrees the autumn weather will come more quickly . . . as if it's rescuing me from ridicule.
School has started, Halloween candy is out, fall decorations are in the stores and, more importantly, college football has started! Pumpkins, apples, crunchy leaves beneath my feet. Sure signs that fall is near. The crafty side of my brain is starting to wake up. Well, I don't actually MAKE crafts, but I do BUY craftsy stuff and I will make frequent trips to JoAnn's in the coming weeks. I am feeling the need to get out my crock pot soup and chili recipes, and to send my husband out to the garage to make sure we have enough wood to last us through the winter. Our fireplace is clean and ready to welcome the snap crackle pop that it will play home to for the months to come.
Yes, I am ready. Bring it on.
