Fall is in the air!

I am so eager for fall to arrive this year that I almost can't stand it! I want to pick apples, and wear sweaters, and drink hot chocolate (yes, I know I could drink hot chocolate now, but it tastes better in the fall!), and build a fire, and wear fuzzy socks, and hike among the red-orange trees on the trails behind the farm.

Well, today I could feel a hint of fall in the air on my tiny corner of Thistledew Farm. The air had a crisp coolness about it that made me just want to go lie in a hammock and take a nap outside. I wanted to bathe in that crisp, cool air! If I didn't have to be up at 0500 tomorrow morning, I would spend the night out there - imagine how good that would feel!

I know that the winter that follows this fall will be brutal, and difficult for me to handle, and I know that I will be whiny and exhausted and sad on those long days with no sunshine, but this year I want fall to come. And I want it now! :)

I think I'm going to go make some Caramel Apple Bars and unpack my winter clothes. Fall is on the way!

I am not looking forward to winter at all !! I do love Tennessee, I lived in Johnson city for a while and always vowed I would move back. I never did get the chance to do that. :-( My best friend now lives in Clarksville. I'll make sure to send you some of this yucky white stuff when it falls, I have a feeling it's going to be a bad winter ! Oh, love the white hummer, that's beautiful !

I know what you mean, but I want fall to come even if it means the winter is close behind! Of course, when it gets here you'll see my whining about it - I'll probably even whine in my posts, so you can remind me to look back at this comment!
