Welcome Autumn and October...

My plans to start posting more often and write more poetry got side tracked. I won't bore you with too many details, but it was an assortment of family health issues, working on little projects, watching way too much Brit Box and Acorn TV, and doing more reading.

The summer heat was overwhelming for me this year, so I spent most days in my home with the AC on and the curtains closed. Some hibernate in winter, I do it in the hot summer months.

With the cooler weather, the changing colors outdoors, and the possibility of rain this week, my heart is feeling joyful today! It's my favorite season of the year! Evenings spent sipping hot chocolate or spiced apple cider with a good book in hand, more baking, planning for the holidays, decorating... So much to enjoy!

Speaking of reading, if you like cozy mysteries, you might try Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series. I'm on the second book, A Fatal Grace (the title is linked to Goodreads description and reviews). I'm really enjoying it! It's set at Christmas time in the small Canadian village of Three Pines. In fact, it's time to turn this computer off and get back to my book! Until next time...
