i'm so ready for fall

Well at least it looked a little cold and "fall-ish" outside this morning. It's been so hot and dry and just yukky for the past month, and the fires didn't help either, the air quality is really bad. I am so ready for some good old fashion cold, rainy and gloomy days.

I love fall, love the colors, the flavors, the smell of burning wood from the fireplaces, as you walk in the neighborhood in the evenings, warm sweaters, scarves, hats, soft socks, cozy blankets, the very few trees that actually do change color here in LA. Even though we don't have four seasons here, the change is still visible. I love the foods of the season too, hearty soups and stews, warm deserts, hot tea in the evening with some home made preserve. Can you tell I'm ready for the season?? And of course my favorite holiday.... Thanksgiving... yum...

Now that I'm done with the renovation project at the shop... I need to find some new projects to keep me busy, don't get me wrong.. I have my hands quite full with the boys, their activities, running the shop and home... but it's not that kind of "busy" I'm talking about.. it's the kind that keeps my creative juices flowing... and I love that kind of busy... so there are a few ideas in my head and will share soon enough, but for the moment... I'm just looking forward to the weather getting colder so that I can enjoy my early morning walks and hikes again.

Enjoy your week everyone

love...peace... joy...

a little quote before I go:

    P.S.: Hope my English's not too bad, I just wrote down what I was thinking... ;-)
