Fall at Last!

Enjoying one of the first few truly cool mornings of fall. Got the pumpkin spice latte and the flannel pjs and really just revelling in the quiet stillness. Where I live there is a HUGE transition in the weather between summer and fall. If you blink you will miss it as mother nature does her magic seemingly overnight.

This is the time of year where my domestic instincts take over. Comfort food bubbles on the stove and I dig out the yarn and needles and settle down by the fire. I also venture out in the yard to do some much needed work. I know I am SO SQUARE! But I love this time of year, how it rolls naturally into the holiday season, where, in spite of whatever problems there are in my life, a feeling of peace, joy and hope wash over everything, making it feel sparkly and new.

Hubby is the opposite, he's prone to stress and it really gets to him over the fall and winter season. I always feel bad that he can't just give in to all the good things and overlook the bad :(
