Finally it looks like the feeling of Fall is coming back to us. A brisk cold front is to hit about mid afternoon with the temperatures falling quickly. It just doesn’t seem right… almost Halloween and temperatures in the upper 80’s. Then the following weekend we will fall back with our clocks all making the time of year seem balanced.
I am so looking forward to the new year. I know I mentioned it before but a slight bit of normalcy seems to be creeping back into our lives and it is such a welcomed thing. I have been busy with rune making. Two sets to ship off next week and another two already for November. The crafting of my runes has brought me much solace. Much like needlepoint used to, yet my eyes are not as young as they once were. I guess I am gradually falling into my later years. Signs are everywhere of the fact that I am older. I swore I would never say the words…. “Well when I was younger”…. but they seem to come out of my mouth more and more.
The cooler weather has also brought the ability to cook back to me. Although it seems that my children will not be with me this Thanksgiving I have the fever in me to start planning. The pecans appear to be ample this year which is a good thing as last year they were scarce with the heat and such. I have a few new recipes that I want to try out so soon I will be warming my house with the oven as well as filling it with smells of the season
The vanilla sugar as well as the homemade vanilla has already been set back as well as the scented warming pads to give to friends and family. Yes I have been keeping myself busy which as always is a good thing. This time of year is always a welcomed time. I smile in content of the time to nestle down with a good cup of tea, a wooly blanket, and a good book. Here’s hoping you as well are finding a little bit of joy in the wonder of Autumn and the coming of the new year.
