~Warming things up..~

Hubby arrived home safe, but tired at 3.00am this morning. We caught up briefly over cups of hot tea. It's good to have him back home. He was really feeling the chill in the air after the heat of Arizona. I thought that was as good a reason as any to warm things up around here. I have ordered some new cook books from Amazon, which I will show you when they arrive. I've also looked out some warm throws and tomorrow will shop for candles and some new decorations. Can you tell I adore this time of year..! What do you do to bring in the change of seasons? I can always use new ideas.

  2. We have been having a bit of an Indian Summer here in the UK. September can be a lovely month once the first week of high tides is out of the way. However, I have noticed a nip in the air, and a few dry leaves blowing off the trees and swirling on the pavement.
    I like to get out the shawls and scarves and warm coloured things, oh, and make jam!

  3. I'm so glad your hubby is home safe and sound with you again:-) I love this time of year as well and as soon as I feel that chill in the air, I turn on my little electric fireplace, take a couple of throws out, start cooking more comfort foods that warm up the tummy and light candles instead of turning on the lights. We had frost again this morning but once the sun came out it's turned out into a very nice day:-) xoxo

  4. I like to set out seasonal things and decorate the front door. Mmmm some new candles sound nice. When I'm in NM I'm going to look for some Cedar to burn. It has a great scent.

  5. As soon as the leaves start to fall, and there's a chill in the air, I start to cook. Never mind the fact that I'm living on my own now, with nobody to eat the food, I still want to cook. Yesterday it was a giant chicken pie (luckily I had some willing eaters visiting) and last week it was fruit pies and sticky toffee pudding! YUM!
