Feeling Fall

Today is one of those days that feels decidedly fall-like.

It's between 54º and 60º outside, so there's a bite to the air.

The air itself even smells different. I'm not exactly sure what exactly it smells like, but it has the distinctive markings of autumn.

It's a day for sweatpants and long-sleeved shirts,

For steaming mugs of hot chocolate,

And bowls of buttery popcorn.

A day for church in the morning, a chilly soccer game of XanFan's in the early afternoon, Geometry homework and hot lentil soup for supper.

A day of low gray clouds and cold breezes rippling the grass as you watch from inside.

A day for turning up the radio and curling up by the fireplace.

Some people hate these kinds of days.

But me?

i couldn't be happier.

Wow! Where I live the leaves are green and act like they aren't going anywhere for a while...

Yes. It definately smells different... it's of the leaves drying up I think...

I couldn't be happier either. Oone of those reasons you can see at The Lives of Swirly and Speed... :)
