Even though the temperature hasn't dropped enough for me to be truly happy, just finally getting below 100 degrees is enough to bring a smile to my face.
I seem to have more energy during the Fall. More umphf, more something, I don't know....all I know is that I tend to tackle my days with a renewed joy.
early morning yard watering, watching the water drops flying through the air
this time of the year also brings tea, lots of tea
sitting quietly, listening to the birds and watching the curtains blow in the wind
lemons and oranges are starting to be set aside for pumpkins, apples, cinnamon and nutmeg....and to say goodbye to summer, a slice of our favorite summer dessert Orange Cake
a little more work on the back of the pillow
regrowing lettuce, even if it seems hard, it really isn't. Cut off the end off the lettuce, pop it in a jar and fill just the bottom with water, then watch it pop to life.
candle light in my bedroom and the scent of coconut and mandarin orange filling the air
ending the day in one of my favorite spots in the house....my bed
