It's Getting There......

Fall, finally! My favorite time of the year! If only it would quit raining (when did AR get a monsoon season?) so we could enjoy the different slant of the sun, the cooling of the day, the muskiness of the leaves....October is my very favorite month; September is just a prelude to things to come.......for October brings the smell of leaves burning and pumpkins to buy and carve and light, Halloween - my favorite holiday -- and even though we seldom go, the State fair and football games to follow. Not to mention the cooler weather offers an excuse to make the stick-to-your ribs one-pot dishes I love so much: chili, stew, soups, pot pies.....And I can finally get out and muck about in the yard again, something that is too miserable in the heat of an AR summer to enjoy......sigh.......if only fall lasted six months.........

I love fall, too. Love the smell of wood-burning fires, the sound of leaves rustling, the blazing colors of maple trees, bright days that are cool enough for my favorite comfy sweater ...

I love the Fall on the East coast. It's weird here in California, it just rains around the palm trees, weird I tell you.
