I’ve not made time for a lot of reading lately, but I’ve always loved books and libraries. (Speaking of, who goes to the actual library these days? It’s been some time for me, but I hope they don’t become obsolete! They’re so relaxing.) It’s a dream of mine to have a space brimming with books, comfy leather chairs, and nice-smelling candles. And I dream of having a nook specifically designed for reading, like the ones you see beneath staircases or tucked in a corner.
When I think of books, I think of fall. I’ve been thinking of the season a lot lately, and the feeling it brings. Thoughts of apple cider, socks, and throw blankets haven’t been too far from my mind 🙂
But for the moment, I’ll enjoy the hot weather we’ve been having! Summer goes by too fast as it is.
It’s finally fall! In some ways, I think this is everyone’s favorite season (although I’ve never been able to pick a favorite!). The cold, crisp weather, autumn decor, and all-around coziness make it a special time.
This weekend I’m in Kalispell. It is beautiful here! The smoke from the fires is gone and the air feels so clean. There is a light dusting of snow on the mountains and the trees are turning burnt orange and red. (This is another place that sounds so appealing to move to. But I’m pretty grounded back home!)
This season is when the arts and crafts start up again! After a good summer, I’m so excited to start indoor projects again.
My list for this fall:
- Make a calendar
- Sew a dress
- Organize/paint room (halfway done!)
- Make Christmas cards (maybe sell in a bazaar)
- Decorate room with fall decor
And don’t forget the fall treats! My list of food to bake this year:
Any tips for other fall activities?
Yes, I realize this is another autumnal painting, but it is fall!
