September ♥

 I went to bed last night dreaming about gingerbread cake, so naturally I had to make one when I got up this morning.  After coffee of course.  We slept with the windows open.  When I woke up it was a glorious 53 degrees in the bedroom.  So cozy under the covers with the fresh air wafting through the house. I had to put on a sweater before making my way to the kitchen where I could smell the coffee because Rob already made it before he left for work.  It was early and John was still sleeping.  I poured my cup, plugged in my twinkle lights, and lit the candles.  It felt like fall.  And I loved it.  Into the oven went the gingerbread cake and that's how my Saturday began  

Last weekend I finally made my way back to Bath & Body Works after a 6 month hiatus (no explanation needed) and treated myself to a few seasonal goodies.  The most delicious smelling body lotion *sweet cinnamon pumpkin* that I have been putting on every night before bed.  I swear it's also working as aromatherapy to help me sleep : )  and my favorite seasonal hand soap *autumn pumpkin* because I adore how it looks on the counter.  Yes I still have the antibacterial stuff that will surly kill an elephant, but because this bottle is so darn cute I had to get it for fall.  

I put on a long sleeve shirt today for the first time in months! Ok, it's quarter length but close enough. John and I went out today to run some errands and I was very comfortable. There was a cool breeze and it was actually a bit chilly.'s fall!  I noticed the leaves are starting to change too! They are so pretty and it's only the beginning  

School has started and we are desperately trying to get back into a routine (what's that??).  We'll get there eventually. My fear is that we'll get used to it and then things will change again.  Nothing is constant these days but we are doing our best. I was happy to hear that John had several classes and lunch outside last week.  They will continue to do that as long as the weather allows. As for me, I'm still working from home. We have no plans to return in the foreseeable future, which is just fine with me. 

It's safer and cozier at home  


And that's what September looks like around here.  Different but the same  

Tomorrow is my favorite day of the week....Sunday! I'm planning a yummy dinner in the crockpot and I may not even get out of my pj's.  No doubt we will be finishing off the gingerbread cake too! 

Have a lovely day, friends.  Stay safe and be well
