It has been unseasonably warm here for the past several weeks, but that is
about to change. I am really looking forward to wearing plaids and tweeds
and comfy sweaters. When the temps drop this evening I will be
brewing a pot of Cinnamon Stick tea and putting on my flannel pj's and
curling up with a good book.
The sun is setting earlier and it's very dark when I get up in the
morning. The cottage feels so cozy when I put the kettle on and
light all of the little lamps.
I have started to bake cookies each week and I love pulling out my
cookbooks and planning menus that include soups and stews.
Pumpkins are starting to show up at the markets and road side stands.
Mom and I will be taking walks to collect colorful leaves and looking for
pine cones too.
I am looking forward to fresh cider from Williamson Orchard.
I love serving it cold and serving it hot with mulled spices.
I wonder if we should pull out the down filled comforter yet?
Bentley will vote yes because he loves to curl up on it. It's
like sleeping on a cloud for him.
