The calendar tells a different story, but we are in full autumn mode here. Having been back to school for almost a full month now, enjoying the first weeks of football season, and loving the cool nights that have blessed us with their return.
I have always enjoyed fall the most. It was always my assumption that it's because I'm a Libra and was born in October. The air smells differently, the sky is bluer, everything around me seems to exhale ~ ahhhhhhh.
The leaves are not yet changing color, but as they do I feel a sense of peace wash over me. I enjoy a cup of hot tea, a fuzzy sweatshirt, and the sounds of my children playing outdoors in the perfect weather.
I hope to spend the long weekend enjoying this time of year in full force. My folks will be here for a visit. We'll cheer on our beloved Huskers. We will eat our traditional football food and toast the togetheness. I thank God for this wonderful time of year.
A three day weekend, plans with family, football on the t.v. and sunny weather. What could be better?!
