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!
