Today is the Autumnal Equinox, marking the first official day of fall. I love fall. It's my favorite season of the year. To me, fall means crackling leaves, hot chocolate with marshmallows. The first frost. Back to school.
Fall is crisp days and chilly nights. Open windows. That fall smell to the air. Turning the heater on for the first time. Turning the air conditioner off for the last time. Breaking out the sweatshirts and the hoodies.
Fall is harvest. Fall is pumpkins, hay bales, Indian corn. Fall is scarecrows, spider lilies and Halloween. And of course, fall is football.
What fall is not is
Somebody didn't get the memo.
On a brighter note, looky what I got in the mail today.
I bought it from an Etsy shop, and the color is Cowboy Way . The colors look pretty good in the hank, but I wish I'd paid more attention to the description. It's worsted weight. If I'd known that, I'd have probably bought more than one hank. Still, it should be enough to get a hat or a scarf out of it.
