I think that a blue sky in October looks different than a blue sky in July, don't you? I also think that even though the first day of fall was on September 22nd, this year to me it didn't really seem like it until a couple of days ago, when October finally arrived bringing the fall weather. I think others are feeling it too--I'm seeing corn stalks and scarecrows and plenty of apple cider, pumpkins, crafts and fall decor in all the stores. I was thinking last night on my drive home from work about the smells of fall, and how much I enjoy them.
I love the smell of rain and wet leaves.
Another is the smell of burning wood. I think you can tell when it’s the first fireplace or stove fire because to me it has a wet smoky odor. The smell is even in the air this morning. Pretty soon it’ll be time for the smells of winter. But I'm not thinking of that — Today the dogs and I (Carl is working) are just going to enjoy the day. I've been plagued with internet or computer problems here at home, I don't know which, but I keep losing my internet connection. I hope I'll be able to catch up with my blog visits today--Paws crossed!
