Hello my dears,
Fall is here, summer is over, there is no denying it. Everything is changing and the Fall colors are moving in.
On the last day of August we had a steaming hot day. Now it is raining and the cool has moved in. I must admit I am ready for it. For me Fall begins at September 1. whether the calendar says so or not.
Summer has been great. Long and hot, busy and relaxing at the same time and filled with wonderful things I will have to tell you all about.
I didn’t plan or expect to leave you all for so long. Somewhere at the end of Spring I got sick, after a pretty stressful period. It took me a long time to fully bounce back. By that time the end of school year craziness was upon us and summer had truly arrived.
And somehow between hammock lounging, al fresco dining, traveling across the globe, playing backyard tourist, thrifting and shopping, painting and web-designing and a lot of doing nothing at all, my blog got quiet, real quiet.
And now it is Fall. Time to replace the cool drinks with nice, warm and comforting drinks. My tops all have sleeves again and I have started to wear socks. The plaid has been washed and put back on the couch for warm snuggly evenings to come, the gathering of pinecones has commenced and so has the scattering of candles around my living room.
I am ready for Fall. Bring it on!
Come September a new (school) year starts. In my day-time job a new exciting, challenging and somewhat scary period begins. And here in my on-line alternative life new and exciting plans are being hatched as well.
I so love Fall. The Fall colors, the crispness, the gift of unexpected warm sunny days, the wild abandon of stormy nights, the falling leaves, the business of nature as it gets ready for the big sleep, hot cocoa and fresh apple pie, boots and scarves, long walks through muddy woods and sipping tea by an open fire.
I so love Fall.
My garden has been good to me. It was once again sadly neglected and yet it gave me sun flowers and poppies, apples and tomatoes in abundance, roses to bring inside and fragrant lilacs to perfume my home.
As always I have plans for this garden of mine. One day it will no longer be neglected. Maybe this Fall, I will make a start….
I so love Fall.
