Anxiously Awaiting Autumn

Autumn is my favorite time of year...I love the crisp chill in the evening air...the magnificent colors as the leaves change from brilliant green to warm browns, gold, oranges, & reds.

The animals are busy preparing themselves for the winter ahead...the geese fly overhead on their way to their winter homes...squirrels are scampering about hiding nuts...

Farm markets will soon open their corn mazes and have all kinds of family activities...Apples are ripe for the picking.
My cooking and baking will change from quick and easy to slow and comforting...Soups, stews, casseroles...Pumpkin Muffins...Apple Pie...Cranberry Nut Bread.

But what I love most of all are the changes my body  experiences...The MG monster LOVES the heat and humidity that summer brings...for me it also LOVES "old man winter"...The MG monster is also a COWARD...he hides in the fall...My muscle's grow stronger as the days grow steps become more sure...I can walk greater distances...I'm more productive at body doesn't require hours of sleep after doing even the simplest tasks...
  That's why autumn is my favorite season!!!
