After a hot, humid summer, I’m glad to welcome the first autumn cold snap. The leaves are turning yellow, orange, and red and beginning to float gracefully to the ground. I’ve brought back out my favorite fuzzy pajama pants and socks to stay toasty warm. I’m looking forward to wearing my scarves and sweaters again. It’s time for soups, stews, and chili. It’s time for baking sweets and hearty meals. It’s time for hot chocolate — with a few little marshmallows tossed in for good measure. It’s time to let some fresh air through the windows to clean out the staleness. It’s almost time for costumes and candy. Almost time for an annual cake selection because I always bake my own birthday cake. Time again to bake another little one’s birthday cake and host a party. I’m thankful for the changing of seasons that I actually didn’t expect to enjoy this year. Life may have worked out differently than I planned earlier this year, but I’m grateful for the little things that make each day bright and beautiful.
