As we move into fall, I keep thinking…you “autumn” fall between the pages of a good book. My brain works in odd ways, but it sounds like southerner slang. Substitute the words “ought to” for “autumn” and you have your real meaning to that sentence.
Autumn in the south doesn’t necessarily mean milder temperatures. Not early on anyway. Maybe mid-October we’ll start having temperatures cool enough to wear jeans. When my son was born (he’s a November baby), it was still in the 80s that year and we were all still wearing shorts.
In Alabama, fall brings a couple of things to mind…
SEC College Football…Roll Tide Roll! The Miller family is HUGE Alabama fans.
On game day, the stadium is full and it seats approximately 102,000 people. There’s never an empty seat! A new religion anyone?
The cooler nights bring the trees to life, bursting with fiery orange, reds and yellows. Raking leaves is not a fun pastime however!
And with the cooler weather, I find myself on the sofa, in front of the fireplace, buried beneath a throw, with a cup of nectar of the gods (coffee for those that don’t speak Gracen lingo) and a book!
A good book is better than comfort food. Do I hear an “amen”?
If you agree…how about trying out a book from Decadent Publishing? They have a lot of great ones out there. What does fall bring to mind in your neck of the woods?
And in the spirit of things, I’m holding the awesome contest below.
