It's an overcast, rainy, 57 degree Sunday here in
Some may consider it dreary...but...
to this Arizona girl it is a
perfect prelude to the coming of fall.
a day for warm cozy fireplaces, baking oatmeal cookies,
and having good one-on one time
with my artistic Muse.
Add some take out Chinese sesame chicken for dinner
and the day is complete.
Our past week here has been filled with
visiting apple orchards, walking through pumpkin patches,
playing in corn mazes
and even strolling through a Christmas tree farm.
Fresh apple cider and apple cinnamon donuts have
topped off almost every trip.
I absolutely LOVE this time of year to pieces...
fall is my most favorite season of all.
I feel blessed
to be able to experience even this small slice of it
before heading back to desert and her beauty
by the end of the month.
Our time in Illinois whooshed by so quickly this year.
It has really taken me by surprise...
as I left Arizona dragging my heels...dreading the blast of
humidity I knew was inevitable here.
I sit and marvel at the fact
that I now feel I may be dragging my heels going back to Arizona!
Funny, isn't it?
My blog posts have been few and far between this trip...
sorry 'bout that.
I suppose that is normal when
changing and readjusting one's daily habits occurs.
I thank those of you
who still come back for visits either daily...
or every now and then.
I have lots of art to share...and I promise I will do so...
