I have been feeling Falls slow arrival. Its still warm here and the leaves haven't started changing colors yet, but my body clock is welcoming it. I had the urge to buy a fuzzy sweater and a pair of jeans as well as a pair of Ugg boots, the same Ugg boots I said I'd never be caught dead in. Its rained here for a week with more rain to come from the array of last minute tropical storms. Somehow I just feel like Fall is going to blur into a very cold winter this year. At the first sign of cold, I start baking wonderful pumpkin breads, cookies, muffins and comfort foods. I love the hearty winter stews and casseroles. I love lighting woodsy scented candles and cuddling under blankets with my puppies and my cat.
