thursday 13

Thirteen things I love about the cooler weather

1. Being able to use my fireplace for yummy smelling fires
2. The sound of rain falling through the trees. I love falling asleep to that sound
3. Drinking warm drinks, like hot chai, or spiced apple cider
4. The smell after the rain fall
5. That first snow, it is magical
6. Seeing my breath make pretty white clouds in the air. For some reason I've always liked that.
8. Making hearty soups and stews that slow cook all day long for dinner.
9. Staying in bed, snuggled under the covers, knowing I don't have to get up
10. The night sky, so full of stars
11. Breathing in that cold, crisp air (especially when I have to go outside for a few minutes because the fireplace has heated up the living rom so well.
12. candle lit nights when the power is out
13. Snowball battles!

As usual, for other Thursday 13 participants, go here

I love the cool weather, too, but right now, it's snowing and bitter cold, and I'm wishing it was still Indian Summer.

Happy TT!
