Decided to pop this topic in as there isn't one. That and its my way of trying to fast forward the end of summer and get settled into the glorious season of colors, pumpkins, spices, scarves, sweaters and tights, lol!
Isn't it just a bit bizarre that those of us who can't wait to get on the other side of summer because of the heat, can't wait for autumn so we can put on sweaters, scarves, hats, tights, etc...lol!!! We ARE a contradiction, aren't we?!
I finally broke down and purchased my favorite mulled cider scented candles. Not only did I purchase them, I've lit them. Heck, I'm on my third one. Granted, they are smaller versions but the fact remains, in my mind, fall is here. Its the law; once you light the fall scented candle, there is no turning back.
I'm currently working on my grocery lists. I like to start purchasing holiday food stuffs early so I won't find myself without or short, when the time comes. I also like to start stocking up on provisions. Even though we have mild winters, it is still winter and we get power shortages. I guess its my "hunter-gatherer" gene kicking in.
The cozy sweaters, leggings, scarves and hats are an added incentive! I'm investing in a couple pair of slippers and another set of winter pajamas.
Just a few of my basic staples are...
basmati and brown rice
ingredients for homemade soups and chilis
Anyone else excited to see the end of summer?
