"I cannot endure to waste anything,
so precious as autumnal sunshine, by staying in the house."
The American Notebooks
Can you smell the pumpkin pies and cookies baking yet? How about the cinnamon scones and cranberry/pear tart-lets? I know... it's the cinnamon/maple pecans slowly roasting in the oven that has your mouth watering! Yeah, I know, it's still hot as blue blazes outside as summer continues to inflict it's opinion on the world, but a girl can turn up the air-conditioner and dream can't she!
Today, Alan and I are going on a little trip down to the Bay Area. It will be a blend of chores and leaf peeping in some of my favorite leaf peeping places, because who could spend a glorious autumn day in the house when the first day of autumn comes but once a year! And besides, it's time to pop down to Berkeley and grab some cheese, from the Cheese Board Collective. Yum!
Go out today and say hello to autumn.
Grab yourself a pumpkin latte.
Watch the early leaves dance along the street.
Photograph something beautiful.
Take nothing for granted.
