It's the Autumnal Equinox! Ohhh, I love those words. They sound so nice together. I love to say those words and I have been, all day. And I LOVE fall, it is my favorite season. The season of cool crisp air and the smell of burning leaves. (Well, not so much anymore since everyone decided to get asthma. Bummer.) But anyway--I love the sweet smell of leaves decaying, the bright colors on your drive about town. I can't wait for snuggy sweaters and the chance to wear my new fall coat. I like not having to paint my toenails cuz' now nobody sees them. I can wear blue jeans and see my breath in the morning. I love the fading periennials and the goodbyes to the hummingbirds. I like falling leaves on the roads and watching my neighbor trying to figure out whose leaves dared fall on her yard. Only she can determine wayward leaves on her property.
I'm not looking forward to the long dark winter, but that's a ways off. In the meantime, I'll be having bonfires to toast the cool weather and lovely hues.
