I am all bundled up as I write this. Curled up on the couch with Izzy by my side and a hot cup of tea close by. I am fall drunk my sweet bloggy friends! Not to be confused with fall down drunk. 🙂 I am fully wrapped in and almost hypnotized by, one of my favorite seasons. Autumn ( Fall) is finally here.
I’m feeling the pull of cozy things, fuzzy slippers, comfort foods and blankets wrapped tightly. I am looking forward to the promise of rainy days, wearing bulky sweaters, fuzzy slippers and soups simmering on the stove. The lulling fragrance of a fireplace as its trail of smoke drifts on the cool night air….and, and, …oh…. I think I need to lay down…
I’ve been patient. I tolerated boiling summer temperatures, muttered curse words as I burned my hands on a hot car steering wheel. I dried tear stained cheeks as I watched our beautiful flowers succumb to the heat and turn into dried flower arrangements you would find in an old attic somewhere.
I did my best to play outside with our sweet Izzy and with our beautiful grandchildren. Only to find after 10 minutes in the 100 degree temperatures my body gave out and I went screaming inside in search of a tub filled with ice cubes.
I spent endless hours standing in front of air conditioning vents begging for my core temperature to cool to a manageable level of miserable. The days of hoping my deodorant holds out and changing shirts twice a day have finally come to an end. There’s a light at the leaf lined tunnel and it has a harvest gold and orange glow.
I raise my hands in the air with confidence today as I do the happy dance. With the windows wide open and the breeze blowing the curtains. I am in deed fall drunk…So I raise my teacup and say “here’s to -shorter days, longer sleeves, comfort foods and crisp cool mornings ahead ♥
Happy Autumn sweet friends. Enjoy your weekend and when you pull on that warm cozy sweater and light your first fire know that I am smiling with you.:-)
