I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am that you are here. I've waited for you patiently over the summer months while extended heat waves lingered. But now you have arrived and so far you have been glorious.
The maple trees are losing their leaves yellow and brown first, the red just starting to appear. Each year I'm captured by the beauty. The mornings are crisp and sometimes chilly and once again fleece coats are donned before a quick run to retrieve the newspaper.
At first yellow is my favorite color, then red, then orange, then the browns and purples. I guess I like all the colors that you bring to me. The mums are in full bloom being show offs now that the summer flowers have faded away. I like their attitude. While car riding, the rolling hills on the countryside display the changes leaves. Oh so pretty.
I get sad thinking of how my after dinner walks will be coming to an end during your month. Each walk is numbered as the days get shorter and the nights get longer. However, I'm wearing a bit of wool which brings a smile to my face.
In the evenings I'm snuggled under a scrap sock blanket and knitting away. Adding rows, enjoying the process. I've already made an apple pie and have plans for a pumpkin pie. Waiting for you to arrive has been exciting and I hope I appreciate you every single day.
Take care and stay glorious, your faithful friend :)
