Oh, yes! Autumn has finally made it’s way to central Texas. For the first time since March, I’ve had the windows open all night. The air is so crisp and clean. There is a hint of yellow in the turning leaves. Well, the one tree that I have whose leaves actually turn.
I’ve changed the candles in the house to more fall scents, like pumpkin spice and apple cinnamon. I’ve even sprinkled some autumn colored leaves in the china cabinet, to further enjoy the season. I don’t really decorate for Halloween, except for maybe a pumpkin carved with the Ohio State symbol (I know...scary, right?) But I do like to put a little color in the house during this season.
As soon as the first crisp morning rolls in, and that one tree starts to turn, I throw open the windows and give the house a good cleaning. I become energized! I start getting crafty and the ideas start flowing through my head. I find this to be the best time of the year!
It is also this time of year…
I’m dusting off the cookie files and thinking about new ones to make this year. Oh, happy days!!
