I love fall. Don't get me wrong, summer is fine, and spring is okay, but I really love fall and winter. I love the air turning crisper and cooler. I love the days getting shorter and the nights getting longer.
The weather isn't cooling down yet, but I hope it turns that way soon. I love apple cider (especially the fresh, raw cider from Julian) and sweaters and coats. I love things made with pumpkin spices, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I love warm stews and comfort foods.
And I've always loved the anticipation that seems to ripple through the air. For some, it's anticipation for Halloween. For others, Thanksgiving. For others, it's for Christmas or the winter holidays approaching.
For me, the anticipation is palpable as I'm waiting on several different things right now.
I'm waiting to hear a reply to my apartment application.
I'm waiting on my doctor's office to decide what I need to do before my Rx can be renewed.
I'm waiting on a vacation - my first in quite a long time.
I'm waiting on seeing what tomorrow brings.
Happy Fall everyone!
