But, seriously, just some of the things…
Crisp temperatures outside, sunny and yet a little cool…
The cooking/baking (apple, cinnamon, caramel, soups, chili)
Baseball post-season, and even sometimes college football
Sweaters, sweatshirts, and boots
Autumn colors to use in decor and in wardrobe (this year’s trend is olive green—one of my faves, trending or not)
Autumn fragrances: spiced pumpkin and sparkling cinnamon candles
Playing my favorite “Autumn Leaves” on the piano
Autumn leaves—in MO there are so many oak and maple trees—yellows and oranges and reds.
These are some pictures from the place where we lived in MO.
We lived on five acres (Peaceful Acres), and though we love being out in Washington now, with several of our close family (son, DIL, granddaughter, grandson, granddaughter-in-law, great grandson, and great granddaughter), we do miss Missouri, especially this time of year.
In Washington, there are certainly colorful trees (maple, etc.), and the interesting thing here is the different picture that is painted, as you look into the distance—the colorful trees are always mixed in with the beautiful evergreens, and the contrast is stunning.
Another thing I love about the fall is the art projects, really fun for me since, did I mention, fall IS my favorite season.
So, I just won’t think about it….today.
On another day, I’ll write about the blessings of the “winter” (and there are many), but today I think I’ll just bask in the autumn sun and enjoy THIS season.
