dreaming of warmer weather.
I would love to write a post about all the coziness of fall, but I'm afraid all I can think of right now is the warmer weather of summertime. I am sitting here eating tomato soup and apple crisp (last of the apple orchard apples!) and kind of ticked off that I feel so miserable. But I suppose colds and sickness are what come with the cool weather. My body just needs to adjust to it. Perhaps it would help if I actually closed the window to my bedroom? It's just that this Iowa weather is so unpredictable. One day it is warm outside and the next day it is freezing cold and rainy. Well, I do like fall, but I have to say my body adjusts to the cold rather dreadfully. I have been drinking a lot of tea and that helps a little. And I love the cozy feeling of being warm inside while it's cold outside. However, I live in an old house/church and it has its disadvantages and this is definitely one of them (staying warm)! (Besides the random freakishly large spiders, weird crawly bugs and the occasional bat.) It's the time of year when everything wants in. Now I just need myself a nice space heater. But I will say, baking things in the oven helps warm up the kitchen/living room immensely.
By the way, I am truly sorry if I owe you an email, I really wanted to get caught up today! But it seems all I did was laze around and sleep and read Nancy Drew and haven't gotten a stitch of work done. Ah, well. That is what Saturdays are for, right? Have a lovely and warm rest of the weekend!
