Nip in the Air

There's a little nip in the air tonight, as there has been a few times this past week. Fall is making its arrival known. Of course, in just a few weeks it will be Halloween, one of my favorite times of the year. I'm generally already in Christmas mode by then. Just not enough time to enjoy it all fully with the holidays coming so close together.

I have the urge to bake pumpkin bread tonight - something I seem to always want to do when the weather gets chilly. Not sure why, but that is the thing I start wanting to bake. It has become a staple at the teas, and has been a family favorite for many years. I guess there's something about the pumpkin connection with fall. But I'm not going to bake tonight. I do not need baked goods lying about.

I will miss the garden when it's gone. I enjoy having fresh tomatoes and herbs all summer. It seems this summer I haven't gotten to fully enjoy them. I'm not sure why, but it seems I haven't had nearly as many fresh dishes as usual.

Regardless of my thoughts or wishes, the seasons will march right on.

I have some things I need to do on the house before it gets cold. I suppose I'd best get going on those. Before I know it, it will be too cold. It seems there was a whole long list of things I intended to do this spring that still aren't done. Then it was too hot, so I was going to do them this fall. The time is now, I suppose.

I am looking for book clubs willing to read and critique my novel when it's completed. If your book club is interested, please email me at Thanks!
