Autumn in the Air


I've been resisting thinking about autumn. I don't want to rush time -- it goes so fast on its own -- and when autumn appears winter is close behind. And I am not a fan of winter. But it's undeniable autumn is here. I ran an errand after eight this morning and the crisp feeling was here. By early afternoon it was late summer again, bright sun and no humidity.
Thank you all for your new year wishes. Services seemed lovelier than ever this year, and though they were long -- three and a half hours this morning -- the time went by very quickly. Ate lots of the traditional crisp apples dipped in honey and loved spending time with friends. I did lots of entertaining and enjoyed it very much. The big hit was a sweet and sour poached salmon and the tzimmis. Have lots of sweet potatoes left, so I think another batch is in order.
The apartment is just about back in order. The kitchen is cleaned up -- though I am having a plastic crisis with many containers and very few lids. Where do the lids go? Does anyone else have this problem?
I think it will be tough to get back into the regular work week. But a dentist appointment tomorrow morning gets me going and of course on Wednesday I'm so excited about Martha Stewart.
Wishing all a beautiful autumn week and all the blessings of this season.

Autumn is just my favorite season. We don't really have it with leaves changing and all in central Texas, but it is getting cooler here, too. Just rejuvinates after the long, hot summer.

I love autumn but yes, winter creeps along behind, relentlessly! The turn of the year, we just have to roll with it.

I know where my lids go. I feed the cats on them. Yep. I take the lids and sneak them, actually, and put various savory items on them, and try to coax the kitties to eat heartily, or at least just taste it!!! I have finicky cats...

Happy Autumn to you too. And I must have your lids, you must have my containers. :) Thanks for your prayers for my son. :)

My grandson attended a Jewish pre-school here. It had some special services he needed. It was the best pre-school ever. The values they taught him and instilled in him were fabulous. We celebrated all the Jewish and Christian Holidays those three years and one of my best friends - I met there! A Mr. Mom. The tradition of the apples and honey I know well.
Happy Holidays.

Fall is coming early this year even here in the deep south! I too love the fall, but not really a fan of winter, but thankfully it's not too bad here in winter months.

I've enjoyed visiting your blog for the first time, by way of Mimi's blog. I hold a special fondness for NYC. My husband and I have vacationed there for the last few years and hope to visit again in late October this year.

Blessings of peace & all that is good,
Debra

Maybe that's why autumn always means so much to me, because it's like the last hurrah of color and fun before the doldrums that winter brings.
Sigh...sunrise, sunset....

Oh my...you must tell all about your day with Martha! Can't wait for the details.

The only thing I like about winter is the first snow fall and nowhere to go but stay in and watch it...LOL!

Hope you have a magical Autumn day my friend!

Autumn is my favorite, followed by Spring. So sad the seasons don't listen to MY order.
