So here it is....autumn has arrived.
Summer was pretty awesome for the latter half of it...in fact, it was pretty amazing with gorgeous weather where we live in eastern Canada.
Now it is fall and the weather is still pretty decent but, this isn't my favourite season. Once the leaves have dropped and the weather gets colder and the days so very short with their lack of sun I get a bit melancholy. I will try to keep my spirits up though and
I plan to enjoy these next few weeks of golden light on the changing trees, the lengthening shadows, and the beauty of the colours of autumn. I hope to get apple picking, walking in the corn maze, maybe have a picnic, enjoy a bonfire, and go for some walks or hikes. I'll drink more tea, bake ginger/molasses cookies, make stew and other comfort foods....and I'll probably gain back the weight I lost the past few weeks! Gotta keep active!
What are your favourite things to do in the fall? Do you get a bit melancholy with the lack of light or do you enjoy being cozy in your home? I love the outdoors and the heat so it will be an adjustment to the colder days and nights. I don't like having to wear extra layers of clothes, jackets, scarves, sweaters, shoes and socks etc. but that will start too. Oh how I love summer! It's so much simpler! :-)
For all of you who really love fall and the cooler weather - enjoy!
The rest of us will do the best we can to enjoy it too.
Have a great rest of the week and Happy Fall to you!
