Warm sweaters, hot chocolate heaping with marshmallows, cozy blankets and a good book.
morning, I get a fire going in the wood-burning stove.
Nothing warms the house up faster than the hot heat of a wood fire. Love it.
I spent the morning reflecting on my blessings, and writing in my journal.
I have so many blessings...... so many things to be thankful for.
Some of my favorite things about this time of year are :
~Snuggling up on the couch with a good book. I actually finished a book last week, and have started a new book. Being indoors when it's cold and blustery, I find myself with time to read again... so nice.
~Candles.. I love the flickering light, and of course the yummy scent of candle. I have 3 candles burning this morning: Mulberry, Candy Corn, and Spiced Wassail.... all from Salt City candles.
~Hot Chocolate spiced with cinnamon. Yummy!
~Leaves blowing around in the wind. Like snow, swirling around the fence-posts and trees.
~Taking pictures. Fall is and always will be my favorite time of year, and I love to drive around and take pictures. There is always something beautiful to see.
~Board games. We love to set up Scrabble after dinner to play, or maybe a game or two of UNO. Back in the day, I loved to play Clue, or Monopoly.... I run out of patience for those two games anymore **grin*.
~Naps. I'm not a person that usually naps. In the Fall, it's nice to curl up and have a nice long nap.
~Pies. Pies taste good all year long, but they taste especially delicious in the Fall.
So many things to be thankful for.
So many things to love about Fall.
I'm loving Fall, but dreading Winter.
Is there a way to enjoy Winter???
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm so blessed and lucky to have good friends.
Wise women to give me advice, and laugh with.
~I'm blessed to have my health. Even though I feel myself getting older, and it's slowing my down a bit, I still feel like I can accomplish so much.
