i might be falling in love with fall.
summer seems to have ended rather abruptly here. i kept thinking that it was just a cold snap, that it would surely get warm again. but it hasn't. not really. and now it's october, and the air is crisp, the sun is shining a lot, the leaves are starting to turn. i know i'll never look forward to summer's end, but i'm enjoying my jeans. my shoes. a hand-me-up sweater from an old friend. my scarf collection. making pie. soup for dinner. baking muffins. and bread.
we're celebrating another holiday this week, one that has us eating outside in a little temporary structure called a sukkah (you see it pictured here). this particular sukkah is new to us this year, and though i thought we'd decorate it - i had visions of painting the walls and hanging fruits from the roof and lots and lots of paper flowers - i'm crazy loving the simplicity of the whole thing. white walls, evergreen roof, white twinkle lights. i have a few improvements in mind for next year, but for now, crazy love.
yesterday we picked apples. tonight we're lighting a campfire in the backyard. tomorrow i'm making this (without the cream). yeah, i like this season just fine.
