Anyone who knows me well knows my love of autumn...the weather is moderate, the colours are vibrant, and I can wear my favorite wardrobe of turtleneck sweaters and jeans. Plus the sun sits so much lower in the sky so the sunsets and sunrises are stunning and everything is touched with shades of gold. Since I'm a Canadian I decided to incorporate a maple leaf into my journal, though they aren't common here. Our last property came complete with a Japanese maple tree which was so beautiful but we don't get to enjoy the massive leaves that are in abundance out east.
I'm especially missing autumn at this time as the temperatures are hitting 30 degrees celsius (86 farenheit), I prefer it around 20 which is anticipated...even with a forecast of rain, I'm really okay with that. Along with fall comes the energy to create more and bake more and pretty much do more of anything as I am wasted in heat. I had heat stroke as a young girl and it still takes me for a loop. Which is why I generally prefer living near the mountains as we tend to experience moderate temperatures almost year round. Lucky me.
