Why I love this time of year!
So, these are the things I love:
I love it when the rain pours down and the wind blows all around while I am inside my cozy house with the woodstove warmth wrapping me like a wool blanket. It makes me so thankful to have shelter!
I love it when my children are all home from school in the evening & we have just had a fallish dinner of Ginger Carrot Soup with Turkey & Swiss Grilled Sandwiches. We putter about satisfied and resting wrapped in dark with glowing lamp light to cozy up to.
I love making gift lists for the holidays (I always start early because just like my pumpkins come out in early Sept. my sparkly things start coming out before Thanksgiving!) I LOVE CHRISTMAS. It makes my heart glad.
I love bundling up to go out in sweats & ugg boots and sweaters with vests and knit hats. It doesn't get better than that - except when I feel like going less casual and get to wear my favorite brown boots with jeans & a cute jacket!
I love the sunny days that break in and surprise me so I can't help but going out for a walk and feeling so blessed to have another gorgeous day - we have more nice days in fall than any other time of the year in the NW I think.
I love to hope for the first snow!
I could go on and on I think but that might be a real bore! Just had to share why my heart is still full (and I'm so thankful it is!)
