But, we were rewarded late Wednesday with a beautiful sunset and a cool breeze, tempting us to open all the windows, and sleep a night without the air conditioning. I am ALWAYS hot, but a chill hung in the air last night, prompting me to cover up with the quilt on our bed.
Wednesday was much like any ordinary day, however I woke with a restlessness. I decided to mail some letters, and treat myself to lunch over the noon hour. So, I jumped in the car and drove over to the local grocery store. After paying for postage, I found myself drawn to the flower counter. As I reviewed the selection of flowers in the self-serve bins, I spied a bouquet of large sunflowers. They made me smile, and they looked incredible, so I new they were fresh. I could not resist!
After returning home from my errands, I promptly arranged my beautiful bouquet in a warm yellow pitcher I keep for decoration. They looked perfect!
I suddenly longed for the fragrance of a spiced pumpkin candle. So, I rumaged through my over flowing candle drawer to find the perfect scent. Every time I walked into the kitchen, I smiled when I saw my sunflower bouquet. After work, I decided to dig out some other autumn accessories. Before I realized it, Fall had arrived at my home.
Today, I have opened all the windows to let the cool breeze back in, and I dream of colored leaves, pumpkins, and warm clothes.
Oh... how I wish the trees were changing colors, but it is too early. So for now,I will just have to enjoy my sunflowers.
