Today is the first official day of Fall.
But to me, it's felt like fall since the day after I got back from our trip to Prince Edward Island. When we landed, it was close to 30 degrees Celsius. The day after, I think it went down about 15 degrees and has not got any warmer since then.
I'm not complaining though, Fall is my favourite season. The cool crisp air, leaves changing colors, tea or hot chocolate and evenings sitting cozy on the couch with a warm blanket and a good book, are all things that come to mind and things I love.
I've embraced fully the cool weather by bringing out our warmer clothes, baking anything I can with spices such as cinnamon, ginger and cloves, and having fresh chilli simmering on the stove.
But today is officially autumn equinox. And what's happening here? The weather is getting warmer. Much warmer for the next little while apparently. It's throwing me for a loop! I'm not sure weather to take out my flip flops out of the closet, or keep on knitting scarves and such. Whip up a batch of raw vegan ice cream, or bake some ginger cookies. Whatever mother nature may have in store for us around here, I'm going to embrace all of it and do the best I can to live in the moment, and enjoy all of it. Nice warm day? Take the kids for a bike ride or nature walk. Cool wet day? Bake and cook to stock up the freezer.
Weather Autumn is your favourite season like me, or it makes you sad to see summer really ending, I hope you can take a moment and see the beauty all around you and take the time to enjoy every moment.
So what about you? What are your favourite things about fall?
