I have been doing my fall cleaning. The time will soon be here when I will have to close the windows and doors and no longer be able to smell the wonderful outdoors flowing inside. I decided it was time to put away my lavender and get out the apple and cinnamon potpourri. I filled all my simmering pots with this wonderful mixture. I tied cinnamon sticks with colorful ribbons and laid them around the house. I mixed up a batch of Russian tea and put in a vintage jar to sit on the counter so I can have it handy when the kettle is hot. Now that it is cooler I am getting in the mood to bake. That will have the house filled with wonderful smells. Time to air the quilts and get them ready for the cool nights. Soon it will be time to trim back the flowers and plants and get the flower beds ready for a long winters nap. Though I have tons of projects to keep me busy indoors this fall and winter I also have a stack of books that I am looking forward to reading by the fire each evening. Did I tell you I love Fall?
