If I am correct the season of Fall begins today. Hip, hip hurrah!!!!!!!
It is my most favorite season of the year. Don't get me wrong I love all the seasons. As each one is special and is another season of my life. As I change with them. But Fall is special to me.
I want to share some of my reasons for liking (loving) it so much.
I Fall in love with it all over each year. I love all that it offers my senses. The beautiful smells, sights, sounds, and touches it gives.
The sights of all the absolute, beautiful colors it gifts us with. Blazing oranges, and reds, golden shades of yellow, the grass changing from lush green, to wheat yellow. Mums in their glorious colors, Sunflowers reaching to the sky, providing food for the birds.
Friday night High School Football Games. Now there you have sights, sounds, touches, and smells. The aroma of hotdogs and nachos, the smells permanate the air. Bonfires putting off hues of red, and orange. Crackling sounds as the wood burns and sparks. The feeling the heat leaves you with and the chill of the night air. How a warm cup of cocoa with marshmellows delights the taste buds.
The sounds of the crowd cheering their players on to victory. The guys high-fiving each other as they score. What fun!!!!!
I love the cool nights, where one can cuddle under a blanket sipping hot tea, while reading a good book.
I love the pumpkins in all their different colors, the oddly, shaped squash, and gourds, crispness of an apple as you bite into it. We must not forget the smells coming from our kitchens this time of year. Soups, and chilli simmering, backyard BBQ's with chicken, and ribs, pumpkin breads and pies baking.
Most of all I love to set on my couch with my favorite person, eating popcorn watching and old movie by candlelight!!!!!
HAPPY FALL EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
