Goodbye Dear Sunscreen, May We Meet Again Soon

I am officially calling it; summer is over.  I know, I know the first official day of fall was September 23rd.  On that day there was still some lingering warmth and dusty sunrays to trick the mind into thoughts of ice cream and flip-flops.  But today is the day I removed the bottles of sunscreen from the entryway table where they sat, ever hopeful.  I have purged the boys closets of shorts and sandals and replaced them with sweaters and fleece lined jeans.  It is time to think cozy thoughts of woolen socks, flannel pajamas and crock pot stews followed by apple crisp and cider.

The embers of the first fire of the season are glowing in our fireplace and the smell of candles freshly blown out, still linger in the air.

Dance with me by the light of the candles, my love.

    It’s funny, I seem to be more likely to burn candles in the fall and winter; and I absolutely love the crockpot for cooking!!

  2. It is Definitely fall here too! We’re loving it since it’s officially the first fall we’ve gotten to experience in about 5 years.

      When I left WA for AZ I did not realize how much I would miss seasons. A good friend of mine and I used to make a day trip up to Sedona’s Oak Creek Canyon to experience a day of fall. We would eat at this crazy restaurant that was known for having over a hundred omelette combos (I remember one involved gummy bears), go pick apples, and hang out by the river looking at the colors of the leaves. Now I have but to step out my front door to be greeted with multicolored trees. I suppose I could make a gummy bear omelette if I so desired too. 🙂
