The rainy days of fall...

I love them.  I'm in my writer's cave up to fifteen hours a day right now and it just feels right to look out the window, or go pick up my children from school and to have slate gray skies overhead and wet streets under my car tires.  The wind is blowing the trees outside right now and colored leaves are falling to the ground while the lichen on the older branches is coming into view.  It's gorgeous and very inspiring.  The perfect time of year to write...or get lost in a good book.
 
I love the changing of the seasons, how about you?
 
Hugs,
Lucy

Lucy,

I love this time of year! All of the beautiful colors on the trees, the smell of wood burning, tasty apples.... I could go on and on.

Oh, Lidia...yes...I love that too. The thing I miss most about my old house was the woodstove. Dh and I are discussing having an insert installed because we both miss having a fire so much.

Hugs,
Lucy :)

I love the gas fireplaces that I see in houses. Almost like having a fire except there is no smokey smell.
Right now the colors of the leaves are beautiful. Orange, red and the burnished browns.

PattiF...exactly! I like the smell, but my asthma doesn't, so a gas fireplace would be the ideal sollution. :)

Hugs,
Lucy

Lucy,

I've just discovered your blog and I think I'm going to haunt you from here on out :). I am so in awe of your time-management skills and ability to churn out so much incredible work that I'm hoping something just might rub off if I stick around long enough :).

I love Fall, too -- very conducive to working. But what I don't like is the very early darkness. I'm a sunlight girl -- sunlight keeps me happy.

Hi, Loreth Ann...I'm glad you found the blog and I look forward to chatting more with you. I don't know if you really want my time management techniques. Mostly because I'm not sure how good I am at them. C'est la vie!

I love sunlight too, but the great thing about living in the PNW is that the shorter days are only a season...not most of the year like in Alaska. :)

Hugs,
Lucy

This winter I purchased a wood stove instead of a fire place .I wanted to save on the heating cost this year.Superior Fireplace I even created my own Superior Fireplace site related to everything about fire places and wood stoves.So save on the higher heating cost and burn some wood.Have a great day bye.
