Patiently Waiting For...




Crisp, cool mornings

Sweaters and fuzzy socks

Pumpkin Spice everything

Candles burning all day long

Pumpkins, cornstalks, and colorful mums

New crayons, pencils, and schoolbooks

Earlier evenings

Crockpot meals simmering in the kitchen

Comfy throws on the sofa

New seasons of old, favorite shows

Football on Sundays

Apple pie and pumpkin muffins

Green becoming red, yellow, orange and purple

Hot cocoa and a good book on a Saturday

Leaves swirling in a breeze

Smoke swirling from chimneys

Feeling all the cozy.




How about you, my friends??

  5. For what it's worth, I have been LOVING using my crock-pot all summer because it doesn't heat up my kitchen! I baked a cake in the crock-pot last night and today we are having baked pasta via the crock-pot as well. I am still looking forward to fall anyway though. :)

  7. I am right there with you, my friend! Autumn is my MOST favorite season of the year...even though there are wonderful aspects to each season. I love watching the leaves on the trees changing color. And as I grow older I am appreciating the things that speak new seasons even more.

  11. Been using my crock pot all summer thanks to late swim practices! :) And while I am not ready for summer to be over, I am ready for some football! And the only thing nice about pumpkin spice everything season is that soon peppermint everything season will be here. I do love some peppermint flavored coffee! :)

  13. So looking forward to Fall. While we have had a "mild" summer compared to many in the past. Today it was hot hot hot! With us avoiding the heat and sun, due to hubby's diagnosis and subsequent surgery, we have spent a lot of time indoors. But, it's not the same as cozy fall days and evenings when you can cuddle with a blanket, a good book and a fire. Well, the fire part may have to wait til December around these parts!

  14. No, no, no!! I am not done with summer yet! I've been working so much I haven't had a chance to get out in it much this year. I want to get so sick of the sun and the heat that I'll be ready for Fall, but I'm not there yet! :)

  15. Autumn and Spring are my favorite seasons but it’s still full summer in Oklahoma and most likely will be through September.
    I am looking forward to cooler days and burning candles again

  16. ALL OF THESE!!! Oh my gosh, it's been so hot lately that I can't burn my candles during the day and that is just horrible when I'm home all day without my babies with me. Nothing sounds better than candles burning all day, cuddling under blankets and watching movies!! Hurry Fall :)

  18. Hi, thanks for visiting my blog! I was just thinking about FALL and PUMPKINS wondering if I put out my decorations, would it lure the cooler weather down south?! HA! It's usually summer through October down here in Louisiana but I can't wait for some cool(er) weather.

  19. no, not yet...I'm hangin' on to summer with all I have but I can sure feel fall in the air. Summer has flown by and I want to stay around for a bit longer....

  22. Yes - be patient and don't rush the days - savor the moments - even the heat and the dry days because there is something beautiful to be found in each day. Don't waste a minute thinking about or even pinning for yesterday or tomorrow - it is so true- today is all we have - make the very most of it. Enjoy a pumpkin latte in the middle of summer ♥
