Autumn is coming

 And it makes me happy!

Don't get me wrong, I do love warm summer days, and especially loved the evenings we spent at the nearby lake past summer. Swimming with our dogs, enjoying the evening sun. I loved having dinner in the garden, and playing with the little pool. I loved making little camp fires in our garden, of those of friends, and just talk and have a good time. Picking berries with my man, and the blue skies. Summer is good. 


But autumn is better :)

I prefer colder temperatures, I love how good everything smells when it has rained, the sound of rain pouring down, the wind in the trees. I love the red and orange colours the leaves turn into, and kicking them up when I walk down the street. You never get too old for that. Curling up on the couch with a blanket, a cup of steaming hot tea and a home made muffin. Lighting some candles, a little incense and listening to some music, or reading a book. Or listening to a book while crocheting, a perfect combination. Back to crocheting blankets, and this winter I am going to learn how to knit. For real.

Although everything is still green, the little forest we like to visit is definitely showing signs of autumn.
