Welcome to Favourite Things Friday.
I'll be amazed if someone from the other side of the world doesn't put up an FTF post about Spring this week , so I'm filing a counter post about the Joys of Autumn.
Yes- it’s definitely Autumn. Despite the fact we didn't actually have a real summer here this year. That's the way the seasons roll.They happen regardless. Autumn where I live still means temps of around 27C (70F). The mornings are crisp and clear. The nights are cool but not yet freezing.
The leaves are starting to turn, which will mean sweeping for me since we have two huge trees in our backyard. It also means Indy will spend 6 hours a day waiting for leaves to fall , run up and bark at a single leaf and then return to his standing spot until the next leaf falls. This will occur daily until about June.
Last night I thought about turning on the electric blanket for my bed. There's nothing like getting into a warm bed on a cool night.
Embracing Autumn means comfort food. Roasts and casseroles, pies, puddings and soups. Autumn usually means yummy food full of flavour , slow cooked and with lots of delicious ingredients.
I'm discovering things in my wardrobe that have been neglected for months and got quite excited by the thought of a "new" wardrobe of clothes to wear.
And it wont be long before I need one of these ...
I have at least 5 winter coats. One for every day of the week.
I'm starting to think about puffy marshmallows and hot chocolate.
And last night after not wearing shoes at home since about November, I dragged out the yeti boots . My feet were cold.
Football season is about to start here , which means I'm about to be subjected to Mr. P watching 8 games of football each and every week. That translates to 24 hours of uninterrupted quilting time!
Autumn means making the most of the sunny days that are left before we hunker down to an Aussie winter. It means rugging up under home made quilts in a warm lounge room. It means increasingly rainy days and glorious displays by mother nature. It means country walks and Sunday pub lunches in the country. What's not to love?
