Savoring Autumn

September to Christmas has always been my favorite, favorite time of year. Hurricane Gustav stole about 4 weeks of our fall this year, though. The Christmas season is almost upon us, and I don't feel ready. I who usually can't wait for Christmas! I'd like a little more fall, please.

In the warm climate where I've lived for years (three different states, all growing zones 8 or 9), it's finally chilly enough for a cup of tea in the morning. As the season goes on, we pull out jeans and sweaters, and occasionally even coats.

I'm squeezing out the last bit of fall pleasure before Thanksgiving. It's not Christmas yet!

May you have many happy chilly mornings.
We've had a few......and they sure are nice.

I agree with you. Autumn is my favorite time of year and this one was full of too many things to even really notice its coming and now going.
My son is trying to do Christmas projects and decorating and ignore Thanksgiving altogether!

I love the fall time but am anxious for what little winter weather we can have here in Texas. Went to Homestead yesterday. It was smaller this year than last.
