The weather is finally cooling down, leaves are turning and falling from trees, I see jeans and sweats more often and now with day light savings over, everyone has finished their personal running/walking, and dog walking before it's dark (well before 6pm). My thoughts are turning to the holidays, what I'm going to cook, what needs to be purchased, what needs to be cleaned before visitors arrive. Cooking always feels so much more comforting when the temperature drops, I also cook differently, the stick to your bones kinda food. Even my bedding changes with many more blankets and down comforters (but I still need those crisp cold sheets which I found by the way at Thomas Lee). We haven't turned on the main heaters yet but the portable heaters we've started in the master bathroom. Tonight I believe we are going to stoke the fireplace for the first time this season, my daughter and her boyfriend are coming for dinner, the Cowboys play tonight and it will be another chilly night - perfect evening for the fireplace.
What makes it feel like a change in seasons for you?
