It's Fall, It's Fall, It's Fall!

Fall in Houston lasts all of 2 weekends so we relish it while we can. The leaves don’t turn and there isn’t the smell of wood smoke in the air but we still know it’s fall.

I can go outside without my glasses fogging over.

The windows are open and crisp breeze is blowing through the house.

We had breakfast at an outdoor café.

My Beloved played golf yesterday and didn’t come home red faced and panting.

Everyone on the block is happily doing yard work.

The kitties are frisky.

The Friends of the Library Booksale Season has begun and new inventory is flowing into the house.

There’s a pot of soup on the stove.

We are only taking one shower a day, not 2 or three.

Kroger has replaced the lawn furniture displays with great stacks of firewood for sale. Not that we need it yet but it’s delightful to walk by it and envision a crackling fire in the fireplace.

The wheel of the year is turning yet again.

I ushered in fall by visiting the beach, however, I love fall. I love the leaves, outdoor fires, crisp mornings and warm afternoons.

Wait! We had autumn and I missed it?? I got back in town in time for the rain, and I was grateful for the lack of "sweating hot" temperatures. I didn't realize I missed my first Houston fall. Maybe next year.....

It feels like fall is almost finished up here in Canada. We had snow yesterday. It's gone now, but it was a nasty harbinger of what is to come all too soon.
