What a Difference a Day Makes

Woke up this morning to an outdoor temperature of 58 degrees.  The cat was pretty much Velcroed to my knees for warmth.  The dogs had to be persuaded to leave their warm beds for breakfast.  What a difference a day makes.

Find my warm, fuzzy robe - check.
Move the long sleeved shirts to the front of the closet - check.
Add the ingredients for the best malted hot chocolate mix in the world to my grocery shopping list - check
Start a pot of homemade chicken soup to simmer all day - check

Oh, I know that in a day or two we will be back to summer weather, but just for today, I will pretend that fall is here to stay.  And I will enjoy every minute of it.


  1. Summer is like that. The heat comes and goes at the end, but it eventually disappears. To me, the best part of the year is arriving and I'm looking forward to the first cool days of autumn.

  2. When the ground is covered with ice and the north winds are piling the snow into drifts, it is the memory of autumn days that makes life bearable. And the hope that if I can make it through just one more winter, I can live to enjoy another autumn.
