The weather has started to change and we got caught out in the rain yesterday leaving us feeling under prepared and slightly miserable. We were cheered up by glimpses of sun through the trees this morning and although the air is still a bit warm and humid the sea breeze is cool and gives you a chill. So on went the tights and the new coats and it won't be long before they are joined by the hats, scarves and gloves.
I love this time of year, the colours, the smell in the air as people start to light their fires. We have so far managed to get away without putting the heating on but it won't be for long. The damp is creeping in, as are the big spiders, and there are only so many jumpers you can put on before you can no longer move.
All the talk of Halloween is in the air and whispers excited whispers of Christmas.
October makes me think of long walks through the trees wearing our wellies and wooly jumpers. Coming in from the cool air after jumping in piles of leaves with rosy cheeks and cold fingers having a hot chocolate and a snuggle under a blanket to warm us up. The dark evenings mean more time for stories and movie time. Hot baths to thaw out cold toes and snuggly fleecy pajamas and fluffy socks.
What do you like about this time of year?
