(Us Canucks are celebrating Thanksgiving.......
Always anxious to eat turkey and pumpkin pie, we cant wait until November to celebrate.)
I love this time of year, not for the rain and cool weather we have, but for the warm sunny days that you don t sweat in, and the colours of the autumn leaves (more incredible in Cape Breton than BC, I must admit), and the crunch of them under your feet.
Autumn colours are my favourite colour schemes. So warm, and earthy and serene.
Its a perfect time for making "Mrs. Johnson" soups that simmer away on the stove-top for the morning. Warming body and soul. Or making a pitcher of raw Hot Cocoa, a glorified & chocolatified (just made that one up) almond-milk. And sitting on the couch all snuggled up under blankets and bodies and enjoying the read-aloud book with my little darlings.
And cool nights sliding between cotton sheets, seeking out the warm body of my husband to calm my shivers.
