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.
