I have my own built-in clock. Today, it said time for fall. The first change, after finding my slippers and bathrobe, as it was chilly this morning, was the item on my front door. Then, out came the greens, golds and oranges to replace the summer shades, in my combination dinning and entertainment room.
I checked out my drawers and all the summer clothes which will not be warm enough now will be neatly packed away tomorrow and replaced with my fall attire.
I find I'm a person that likes black. Everything goes with it. It says sophisticated. And, I'm in a mood for warmth. Fall shades do just that. Perhaps, because I was born under the sign of Scorpio I like change in my life and look forward to the four distinct seasons. I like the cooler air as well. Make up this time of the year is back to the red shades, a contrast to healthy pink cheeks.
Cooking is especially fun, and somehow I can picture my cut-out cookies. These are fun when you have children or grandchildren, or maybe for the elderly who participate in our community meal once a month. They are so much fun to make and nice additions to any dessert table. I've never seen so many pears on my trees as this year. Soon leaves will begin to fall and then the smell of wood stoves. I can hardly wait for all the football games and evening services at church. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy spring and summer, but I was born in the fall and that is my favorite season of all.
I'm looking forward to all the fun times ahead. Maybe I'll do some canning this year. Makes great Christmas gifts. After all, variety is the spice of life.
