Autumn, the visit of an old friend
“But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”
― Stephen King
I love the Fall. for me it is like an old friend returning and I allow the time to be taken to enjoy his company. My favorite things are hoodies, and candles, and books, and slow afternoons....pumpkin pie with whipped creme, hot tea, and the smell of burning wood in the air.....an afternoon of conversation followed by an evening with a favorite quilt....today I received the announcement that autumn is almost here...it came in the form of rain, cool breezes, and a gentle fog.
Thank you God for the gift of seasons
