Monday has rolled around again (does that every week), which must mean that it's FUN MONDAY! This week's host is HoosierGirl, who has poured herself a cup of coffee and is looking for answers to her ponderings:
This morning, the weather turned cool here in Southern Indiana and my thoughts turned to fall. Our "10 on Tuesday" was name something that is your favorite about fall, and hence....this week's topic was born.
Show us or tell us what you love about fall - images, smells, sights, activities.
I absolutely ADORE Fall!
I love the cooler temperatures that allow me to breathe again. Have you ever been somewhere where the air is so heavy that it's hard to inhale? That's this place and summer.
I love that having a hot cup of tea, coffee, or cocoa is comfortable and not setting you up to melt.
I love that jackets and jeans aren't so out of place.
I love that the bug population falls off rather dramatically, and after the first frost, they nearly disappear.
I love that the windows can be opened without fear of bugs or pollen ruining it.
I love that a morning rain feels refreshing rather than dampening.
I love that it's time for more than just a sheet. It's hard to snuggle into bed when you're sweating like a racehorse after a good run.
I love that going out for a walk or a run or a bike ride or any other physical activity feels exhilarating and not like a slog.
Mostly, I love the energetic feeling I get that makes me want to take on projects! Painting the house, recovering furniture, sweeping the walk - my best life improvement projects happen in the fall!
This weekend, we started on my son's bedroom. We are making him a forest to sleep in.
We've got the sky and the hills and a few trees.
The sunset has been painted on the west wall and bigger trees and animals have been penciled in but need finer brushes than what we have now to complete.
