I love the colors, the messages and the good old fashioned loveliness of the past.
Tonight we are enjoying our first roaring fire of the season. We have such strange weather here in Texas. Yesterday, we had the air conditioner on and tonight a fire to warm our chilly toes! Fall is absolutely my favorite time of the year. I love the colors, the smells, the change in the seasons after such a long hot summer. All of the holiday preparations are beginning and I start to plan the meals for our family gathering. The day after Thankgiving we start decorating for Christmas and begin baking in earnest. All of the children have their favorites and expect them to be available during the holidays. So it keeps me quite busy. I also have finals to study for and gifts to purchase. We have quite a large family now, and it is a challenge to buy gifts that they will enjoy. This year we are also taking a vacation during December so, I have lots to do in a short amount of time! I hope to blog surf and get some great new ideas for the house. Thanks for leaving me a message. I love to visit your blogs, I always feel that I have visited your home. Have a happy week!
