If you have followed me for any length of time than you know that Fall is my favorite time of the year with Winter running a close second. As the temperatures are soaring to record highs again this week, I find myself almost a shut in.
I work from home so there are normally at least one or two days a week where I do not leave the house, but with the rising temps I find myself only going out now to let the dog out and get the mail. Call me a wimp but I HATE the heat and humidity, and I am certain that I am not alone.
I long for Fall, cooler temperatures, a hearty bowl of soup, a stack of books, a few good movies and a roaring fire. Today, just for fun I will show you some of the things I have been dreaming of! I hope they will take your mind off of your heatwave too.
I can already picture myself sitting by the fire, snuggled with my down blanket and my pup at my feet.

Reading a few good books that I have set aside for the long days of Fall, that is if I can tear myself away from Pinterest for a few hours.

Of course I will be sipping a mug of drinking chocolate.
While a pot of Tuscan bean soup with rosemary soup simmers on the stove and a loaf of this Easy Little Bread from 101 Cookbooks bakes in the oven.

Perhaps I will have a piece of slab apple pie made from my grandmother's recipe? Who knows...
Tell me are you growing weary from the heat? Or the incessant rain? Are you dreaming of Fall like me? Or are you living in an area that Fall/Winter comes too soon and last for TOO LONG so you are savoring your Summer in any form?
Whatever the case, I have to get my head out of the clouds and get some work done. But my day dream was a nice little respite and I guess I can make it a few more weeks until the chill sets in and Fall colors appear.
I hope that your day is beautiful! Enjoy!
