I love to be home

I like curling up on my bed and browsing blogs and reading a good book and listening to good music. I am contemplating the possibility of staying here always. I love to be home. Especially since it is cold outside.

I think I am desperate for Fall. The idea of it just tastes good to my soul. All the leaves and the crisp air that makes your lungs feel so clean. Curling up in blankets and layering on the fleece and wool. Hot baths and cinnamon apple candles. Holidays. Snowpicnics on the hill. While the kids sled and play the adults drink warm drinks around the fire and reminisce and take a ride or two down the sled run themselves. Curling up on the couch in front of the fire watching movies all day. HOT CHOCOLATE. Driving on ice and watching the idiots who don't know how to drive on ice. Playing in the yard with the kids and letting them get all muddy even if I am not supposed to. ;)

This is the begining of my favorite time of year, and though I know that this is just a taste of it and Summer has at least one more good hot spell left in her, I know it's almost here. And I feel like after a slothish Summer I am finally coming back to life.

Also Sissy has had an eventful day, she had so much to say. You should drop by and see what she did. ;)

You LIKE winter??? Winter is OK when you can stay in all day, but that's the only good part about it! Oh, and hot chocolate yeah! But only when it's had inside.

I love fall also, the changing of the leaves, the chill in the air, and the fall clasic, especially if the Cubs make it there this year.
