Signs of Autumn

I simply adore fall.  LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  And I love all the signs of it's return that are cropping up all around me.

  • We no longer need the A/C so there is a nice breeze blowing through the house.
  • I'm chomping at the bit to get out all my wonderful boots.
  • The cats actually want to cuddle again, rather than sprawl out on the wood floor under the ceiling fan.
  • School is getting back into the normal swing.
  • I just felt the need to wind 880 yds of laceweight yarn and start a shawl. (It's like September hits and my brain clicks out of sewing mode and into knitting mode and swaps back as soon as April rolls around.)
  • It's still dark when I wake up in the morning and it's dark before I go to bed (I'm a morning person- up at 5:30, in bed by 9:30.)
  • They had butternut squash at the farmer's market this week.  I cannot express to you fully my love for butternut squash.
  • Is it too early to start wearing boots? I mentioned the boots, right?
  • Fall clothes are out in the stores and I bought a new pair of skinny jeans (not to be confused with the evil "jeggings") last night. . . and it's not too hot to wear them today! Hooray!
  • The weather is perfect for running lately.
  • I may have said this already, but I can't wait to bust out the boots.
