Topic 2

For the All Hallows Eve Dishcloth Swap:

Here in Atlanta, it’s finally cooling down, and beginning to truly seem like fall. I sit now with windows open, and the air is cooler than usual, and trees are beginning to change. For me, cool mornings, crisp evenings, and trees in red, gold and orange glory are the very best parts of Fall - What are your favorite parts of fall? How do you know it’s truly arrived where you are?

I haven’t been here long, but the nights have turned very cool, the days are shorter and the trees are already losing their leaves. My mums have bloomed, and the AC was shut down several weeks ago (and I can open my windows for the first time in years, allergies are not as bad here as they were in GA). The light in the sky always gets a special glow in the autumn, my favorite time of year (yes, even before the springtime). If I were an artist, I would stand outside in the middle of the day and paint in an attempt to catch that special light, as it is, I can only sit and appreciate the light.

Yes, it's so nice not to need the AC on all the time!

I can do without the falling leaves though. I just happened to pick a house on a street with trees that shed MORE than any of the other trees on nearby streets, AND the wind blows towards our house so all the leaves from all my neighbors fall and blow towards MY house, so I end up raking up my leaves and everybody else's leaves too. If I had know which way the wind blew, I would gave gotten the house across the street instead, lol.
