Autumn Energy

Ahhhh......the fresh, crisp feel of Autumn. To me, there's just nothing better. People think I'm crazy when I say that I don't like warm weather, but I really don't. I tend to spend more time in the house in the summer than I do outside, even though we have a home on a lake. Obviously, if we have company I'm more than happy to be out on the pontoon, but our lake isn't the best for swimming, so air conditioning is my friend.

Once it drops below 70 degrees, I am so happy. It's like a whole new energy washes over me. I actually feel like being outside, pulling a few weeds out of the garden, walking the dog. All of the deer flies and mosquitoes that have been buzzing and biting all summer seem to go away. All I hear at night when I walk outside are a few crickets and frogs. It's awesome.

And lets talk about baking and making stews and chili. Y-U-M!! My husband went fishing in Northern Minnesota last weekend, and I spent the whole time eating chili and caramel apples. Heaven!! Well, I didn't exactly eat the whole time, but when I did eat, that was what I had.

So that's all I've got. My blogging brain seems to be a bit empty as of late, but at least I'm happy to say that I am thoroughly enjoying reading all of your blogs, and breathing in the cool, crisp air. Enjoy!
