Dreaming....

With the relentless heat here in Texas, I have found myself daydreaming more and more about spiced cider, apple orchards, pumpkins, sweaters, cool breezes, deep oranges and reds as the leaves turn in auburn waves.




My dreams have already turned to the coming holidays, and all those wonderfully delicious days spent baking away in the kitchen, the smells wafting from room to room. Nights spent cuddled up under quilts and flannel pajamas, after evening walks with cool breezes.

I have been planning and pining away after the months that await us. There is something magical about back to school supplies and fall decorations, with hot chocolate mornings that makes my heart go pitter patter. Swoon....

I can't wait for pot roast and blueberry muffins....warm apples drizzled in butter and cinnamon. My heart is full just thinking about it!!!

Ohh, I do love autumn! You've made me long for it already too! Nevertheless, I am enjoying summer... what little we get on the coast... it's in the sixties right now and foggy... but the garden is growing anyway! :)

Best wishes on this Wednesday!

My very favorite time of year! :) It's good to know that there are other kindred spirits out there daydreaming of the bright, clear blue skies of October, woodsmoke drifting through the air, hayrides and pumpkins and all the wonderful things that autumn brings. :)

We are cookin' here too, this week! Yikes!

Autumn is my absolute favorite season - I try to be patient and enjoy each one but when it is so hot out it is hard to be patient.
