what is it about autumn?
so many people seem to respond to the beginning of fall. in most parts of the country (not so much here, alas) it is beautiful and colorful. for the kids there is the excitement of a new school year and new clothes. thoughts turn to baking things with cinnamon and pumpkin.
and, of course, there is halloween. (a marvelous holiday that ought to be celebrated worldwide. i'm just saying). the decorating; finding things in black and orange and getting pumpkins and candles and leafy wreaths. preparing for trick-or-treaters and finding just the right candy. dressing up....
i get to be princess peach this year. I found a pattern that is almost exact to this dress - except the high collar. luckily it is relatively simple.
anyway - so what is it? what is your favorite part of autumn? halloween? the beauty of mother nature? the food? anticipation of the coming holiday season? I love it all. Truly I think I am at my happiest in the autumn. time to sew and bake and snuggle up with hot cocoa and a good book when the sun sets far too early.
oh yeah. that's the life!
