I love the fall...the changing of the leaves, the crisp, cool mornings. Such a beautiful time of year that really gets my creative juices flowing. My Muse and I take more walks outside, which gives me many flashes of inspiration for scenes and interactions I'm writing. Fall is just my favorite time of year!
I also enjoy the idea of curling up on the couch with a good book, glancing up occasionally to see the colorful foliage outside, the sun glinting off leaves of orange and red and yellow. Sipping on coffee or tea or hot chocolate and getting lost in other worlds.
Then there are the puzzle evenings with my Muse. We choose a 750 or 1000 piece puzzle and work together to make all the pieces fit. We usually have music going in the background while we sometimes chat, sometimes remain quiet as we stare intently at the section of the puzzle we're working on. And whether it takes us an evening or several evenings, we eventually snap every last piece into place and grin like little kids at each other when we're done.
And let's not forget the awesome food! My Muse is the cook and boy is he talented!! Everything from homemade New England clam chowder to vegetable-beef soup to very spicy chili and all other assortments of extremely yummy food get put in front of me and I promise, I devour every delicious bite. It's a wonder I don't turn into a blimp by the time Winter sets in...lol.
So, yeah, I love the Fall and am so glad that it's finally here. Now if only I could get it to stay until Spring....
