The calendar says it's fall, the temps here do not. It's still hot
and sticky. I'm trying to remember what fall was like up north,
because I am still wearing shorts and flip flops and spraying up
with bug repellent.
I have been looking through my closet, going through my
fall wardrobe. Lingering over the sweaters and the tartans and
my boots. The fall clothing catalogs have been arriving. If
I crank up the A/C and brew a pot of hot tea, I can just
imagine me wearing the cute sweaters and jackets I see.
I changed my nail polish from the pinks and corals I wear
all summer, to a rich deep red, and switched my flip flops
from my white and pink ones, to a rich saddle leather style.
They are still flip flops, but the tanned leather has a rich warm
look about it.
I have been longing to start cooking the comfort foods
of fall. I can enjoy soup even in the summer, but hubby
only wants it when it's cool outside. When the temps
drop just 10 more degrees, I am getting out the slow
cooker and let the soups and stews begin! Of course it will
still be hot outside, but I'll make it work :-)
I have been looking at the flannel pajamas too. I love the Lanz brand that
Vermont Country Store carries. Such a nice heavy weight, yet very soft
flannel. So snuggly too. Do you love PJ's as much as I do?
I must remember to pick up some more cinnamon spice candles this
weekend when I go shopping. I long for that fragrance in our house.
So, happy first day of fall everyone. I am celebrating despite the
high temps. At least now there is the knowledge that cooler days
will eventually be on their way!
Big Texas Hugs,
