It’s that time of year. The days are getting shorter and the air is getting cooler. I like fall. It’s time to settle down and get more work done after finding excuses to goof off during the summer. It’s time for soup and pumpkins, football and s’mores, mums in pretty pots and leaves falling gently to the ground. It’s that time before the harshness of winter when we can enjoy a long walk or a nice afternoon out on the porch. Fall is different in Florida, however. Not as many leaves to walk through, not as many changes of the season. But still beautiful. And this fall, we are thankful even while most of the state is still cleaning up after Hurricane Irma. Florida will make a comeback, just like fall!
My plans for this fall include working on three different projects and starting a new one that’s due after the first of the year. I like a busy winter, all cozy and warm in my office with the sun shining through the windows or sometimes the rain falling and at times, a little sleet or a touch of snow. (Rare here, but it does happen.)
What are your plans for fall? Will you travel? Or stay home? Work hard? Or have some down time? Fall is a good time to count our blessings and cocoon. Maybe read all those books on that TO READ pile. I hope you have a good fall.
And by the way, I was thrilled to find out my Love Inspired Suspense “Tracker” made the Publishers Weekly Bestseller List at # 20 in Mass Market! To celebrate fall and that, I’ll pick a random poster to win a copy of “Tracker” and my LI “Her Lakeside Family.” Just post here and tell me some of the things you’ll be doing this fall. Let’s celebrate the beauty and the bounty of the earth!
