Fall is here -- no, not the kind seen above. Calendar, schmalendar. It is now chilly in the early mornings and the leaves are starting to show flashes of color here and there. I love apples, pumpkins and fall leaves, but I always fight an undercurrent of impending dread because winter is soon to follow. I have a need at the cellular level for swampy air, humidity and winters that include snow for a half-day about every three or four years - a decidedly more tropical clime than the one in which I live.

I am on the hunt for a cotton fisherman's sweater. Yes, that would make winter more palatable. And I have a pile of felted wool ready to sew into a patchwork blanket. I am certain that will do the trick.

In the meantime, I am going to look for and post the beauty of fall. I will try to do 30 days (not consecutively and not starting today), completely stealing the idea from Soulemama.

Couple some fall beauty with a cup of apple cider, and all will be right with the world.

I am not ready and it's been in the 40s at night here already! This southern girl CANNOT hack this! LOL

Apple's all good and truly speaks Fall. I'm not looking forward to winter either, I'm clinging to these chilly days with leaves still attached to their branches. Chilly is better than freeeezing! There are so many delightful things to enjoy in the fall season. Enjoy!
