Hints of Fall and GIVEAWAY

When I woke up this morning I found myself curled up into a tiny ball. I was chilly. I stretched out and put my feet onto the cold hardwood floor and shivered a bit. Fall is surely on its way. The days are still warm, not hot. The mornings are starting to think about frost. I think we are a few weeks away from the first frost.

Flowers have decided to call it for the season

quilts
A quilt made by my grandmother works for now, we have only flirted with the notion of turning on the heater

leaves
Most of the leaves are still green...

but there are a few leaves that have decided to turn

blanket and hat

For now I will spend my mornings warming under a quilt with a cup of hot tea. Is it cold where you are?

Don't forget to check out yesterday's post to enter the giveaway!!!! I will be posting the re-organized craft space this weekend (yesterday ended up being too crazy to make time to organize, so the mess remains).

Oh, the hat and the blanket! I love that picture!

It's chilly, but not cold. I have been using my comforter at night, though. Right now in STL, it's 68 degrees, and it's been high 60s/low 70s all week, with cloudless blue skies and lots of sunshine. Simpy perfect! This is my favorite part of the year! Yays!

Wow! Summers are so short there! We are still pretty warm here, but not nearly as hot as it has been. Highs in the mid 80's, but next week we'll be back up in the 90's. AC is still running for now. We usually turn on the heat at the end of October, around Halloween. October is usually a glorious month in Oklahoma-- cool mornings, warm afternoons, cool evenings, mellow sunshine. It's a good time for a visit! Hint, hint. ;)

It's been about 60 here when we get up so I run around and open all the windows. By the end of the day it's back in the 80s, though. I am done with summer!
