The View From My Window

The world as seen from my window and through my eyes

Looking forward to fall September 6, 2007

It’s been a long hot summer and I’m looking forward to fall. I’m sure I’m not alone. The best of summer is long past. The world outside is starting to look a little tired and crunchy. We need a little rain and some crisp mornings to reinvigorate us and make us look forward to spending time outdoors again.

Fall may seem like an end to some, but, to me it’s an important beginning. The beginning of holiday season. I love the fall because it brings color and football season with marching bands and tailgating. I love it because it’s the time of year for making all things out of apples: apple pie, apple sauce, apple dumplings. It’s the time to dig out the sweaters and jackets that I adore, mostly because they cover up more of me! It’s also time for family gatherings. Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner.

This year, fall will also bring a new grandson. Our daughter will be having a little boy in November and this will be the first grandson. We’ve already been blessed with three beautiful granddaughters. It will truly be a time of Thanksgiving at our house this season.

What are your favorite things about fall?

    The food. Specifically, butternut squash and sweet potatoes, roasted in the oven. Actually, anything roasted in the oven. Or, just being able to turn on the oven without turning the house into a sweltering hotbox.

    Also, the leaves. Coming from the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in TN, fall meant drives and hikes in the mountains to enjoy the crisp air and changing colors of the leaves. The leaves aren’t quite so dramatic here, but I still love to get out to enjoy the scenery.
