I still don't know why Autumn is spelled with an n at the end. Anyways, Autumn is right around the corner and not too soon for me. I'm not much of a summer person and although I had gads of fun this past season....I'm soooo over it! Of course here in southern cali, Autumn doesn't usually arrive till October, but I see light at the end of the tunnel and I'm thrilled!
Out of all the seasons, Autumn is my favorite. The air is crisper with just the right amount of chill in the air. I can bake and roast and cook again not that I'm any good at any of that.
I can snuggle with my hubby without shrieking OMG...your too hot!...temperature wise, although I think he's hot as in looks too! I look forward to October which brings celebrations and events in some ways more hectic than my Christmas and speaking of....I can start my holiday shopping and not feel too guilty about buying things. The changing color of the leaves and the raking of said leaves...I totally enjoy and last but not least, I think at this point, I'm just tired of the heat of summer and want it to be over. The tiring days of Indian summers are not very forgiving and sometimes they reach beyond their allotted time, but in any case, I'm holding on to my images of spooky nights, turkey legs and mistletoe....they're right around the corner...
I'm just say'n!

P.S. Have you notice my beautiful banner? It was custom made for me by my very talented friend Lulu from Coastal Sisters
and not only does she design banners and such, but drop dead gorgeous jewelery too! Check her out!


  1. Oooooooo, this looks great with your new background! I am so glad you like it :)

    I am still searching for the perfect "charm" for your request. No luck yet *sigh* I am not giving up though!


  2. Bunny: You can say that again. I hate the heat and it is terrible to hug your husband, when he is a flaming inferno! I have my own personal summers, I do not need the summer to drag on. I hear next week we are going to fry! I love your new banner. It is so you, my friend. I am going to put up Halloween stuff, maybe that will help rush Autumn along! Blessings to you Bunny! Martha

  3. There are many words and their spellings that are quite questionable! I love the Fall -- but unfortunately, we don't get it here in Kuwait. Today it is soooo humid! Ugh! Heat is one thing, but mixed with humidity, it is miserable. Of course, I lived the South all my life, mostly Texas and Louisiana, so you would think I'd be used to it -- but gotta tell you, the older I get, the more I need to be cool. We don't get cooler temps until maybe December. I so love wearing different clothes at that point -- and lots of scarves. I do wear scarves all year long, but always nice for the change. Very soon I will put my Autumn wreath on the front door and break out some pumpkins for decorating! I still try to create the atmosphere even if I can't control the weather! Peace & blessings to you!

  4. I LOVE AUTUMN!!!! Fall and Spring. Mild, beautiful. I HATE SUMMER AND I HATE XMAS.

  5. I knew it was Lulu!....I can tell her work!

    And yes....I love fall. Living in the south Texas heat is brutal, but fall makes it all worth while.


Go 'head...say it already!
