Summer, it’s been fun, but I’m welcoming fall with open arms. It’s my favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather, the changing colors, and bringing out the scarves and light jackets. It’s time for soups and stews and chili cooking in the crock pot all day while we’re at work. Fall weekends are for hiking and biking and working on homemade Christmas gifts (wishful thinking, I usually procrastinate until mid-December). The evenings are for heavy blankets, a mug of tea, and a good book.
