Autumn has always been my favorite time of year. Like many, I love the sights and smells this time of year brings.
That feeling you get when you put on that first warm, cozy sweater and sip rich hot chocolate.
Bonfires, roasting marshmallows and good fellowship in the crisp night air.
It is a “time to reap”. Freshly baled hay is one of my favorite smells. Just the sight of a field of hay bales makes me happy.
In my personal life, Autumn is a time to reflect as I enter into the autumn of my life. I think I am wiser and more content. To gather and be thankful for the bounty that was so blessedly bestowed upon me, not matter how small.
I yearn for a simpler life, a more fulfilled life. Autumn reminds me to follow my instinct and to “fly” to where I am supposed to be. More settled, less hurried, inspired by the beauty around me.
With all this being said…..the most joyful moment is finally putting on thick flannel PJ’s and going to bed when it gets dark outside!)
HELLO! I am never sure if my comments get through to your site, but your blog is so beautiful and I love your sentiments and photos! Anita
Yes, Anita, I do get your nice comments! I appreciate them very much!
flannel pj’s are on my top ten list of favorite things ..#11 is an electric mattress warmer..lol
I love flannel pj’s and my fake uggs! I might have to put the electric blanket a bit higher on the list!
Ah yes, the beauty of Autumn! Love the smell of cut sweet grass! But a field of hay bales will cause me to smile as well! We were having cooler weather, even a frost that zapped many of the plants. Tomorrow however….. Well the high is supposed to be….. 78. I know right?!? Romeo can’t figure out if he wants outside or to stay inside and snooze next to the fireplace.
Beautiful photos, beautiful thoughts!
Hugs and purrs,
“Her” and Romeo
It is kind of chilly today and I love it! I am sure we will get warmer weather before we cool down too. I votr for the fireplace Romeo! XO cindy
Love the poetry, love the fall. I am reminded that I am am in the fall of my life…..wrinkles, graying hair, aches…the winter not yet upon me. I celebrate the life seasons all around me, and so grateful for friends and family of all ages to watch as they celebrate the seasons of their lives. Love and hugs from Indiana…..C
