Last night I was thinking about what I was going to post today. Thoughts of fall crossed my mind. Then this morning I read a couple blogs and they were talking about fall. I guess I am not the only one longing for autumn. It is 103 degrees outside and I am looking at my stack of sweaters in the closet and wishing it was cool enough to wear them. It happens every year about this time. I'm ready for a new wardrobe....ready to smell soup simmering in the crockpot....ready to watch the kids jump in a pile of leaves....I wish fall could just come a little bit earlier. The sad thing is, we live in the south and it will be a looooong time before I can actually wear those sweaters without having heat stroke! Right now it is too hot to cook much of anything - especially soup! We have a few falling leaves, but only because they are shriveled from the heat and lack of rain. I miss you, fall, and can't wait for your arrival!
