Well, it is that time of year again. The weather is changing and finally cooling off. The birds are heading south. The leaves...well they are just dropping off the trees skipping the pesky colorful part. The squirrels are busy fighting over the few pecans on the trees as our summer was too dry to produce much.

Fall in North Texas is fast and almost uneventful. More of an after thought really than a season.

I miss FALL. A real fall. You know with beautiful changing leaves, cold crisp mornings, the smell of a woodfire burning somewhere in the night.

We lived in Washington state for a few years and that is what I call fall! The colors looked like God used every crayon in His box. The mornings were crisp with a light fog rolling in from the ocean. The mountains standing tall with their royal colors blazing in the light. It was perfect. If you didn't mind the rain! LOL ahhh...I can almost see it now.

I might not be able to have the scenery around here but I can have some of my other fall favs.
So this next week I am going to bake some fall favorites like apple pie and peanutbutter cookies. We will drag out the mums and put some color in the flower bed. Dust off the old scarcrow and put him in his place on the porch. Get the apple cider brewing and maybe break out the hot cocoa...course we may have to cracnk down the A/C to enjoy them ;)

Hopefully we can go camping soon so we can have smores and enjoy the slightly cooler temps before winter comes.
