And yes, I'm talking about the weather again. How boring can you get, right!? You're probably wondering why I didn't pursue a career as a weather girl. I seem to be oh so fascinated with the subject. But I was starting to get really concerned, you guys! It seriously felt like fall was never ever going to arrive. Ever. Never ever ever ever. This could have been a major international crisis. (Well, you know, it probably already is. Global warming and all that business.) I had tried to have a good attitude about the weather all summer long but by that point I had had enough! I was putting my foot down. Enough, I said!
These past gray days have been such a treat because I honestly don't remember the last time it rained here. There's just nothing like falling asleep listening to the rain on the roof and the thunder off in the distance. Is there actually a person out there who doesn't like falling asleep to the rain?!
Along with reveling in the fact that I was able to write this post in my flannel pajama pants and hoodie along with a mug of hot chocolate without dying of a heat stroke, here's a few ways I've been getting in the autumn spirit this past week:
Enjoying storm clouds from the comfort of my (covered) balcony
Busting out my DIY fall wreath
Fixing veggie chili and cornbread for dinner
Purchasing a fall bouquet from Trader Joe's
And picking out a new fall nail polish. (From OPI's Swiss collection, Ski Teal We Drop.)
How have you been ringing in the season?
