Stewing About Fall

September 20th, 2013 No Comments Tags: , , , , , ,

I was driving to my doctor’s appointment yesterday and John Denver’s ballad You Fill Up My Senses played. That song certainly fills up my senses. How about yours? It got me stewing about the wonders of fall, hmmmmm. What’s not to love? Ya I know we’re one season away from winter, but let’s stay in the moment folks and get filled up with this new season’s wonders.

Taking my morning walks seems to change weekly with the transitioning colours of the fall leaves. Each one painted by Mother Nature herself. The yellows, oranges, reds, magentas, so many lovely lipstick colours it’s simply staggering! I actually love when the temperatures dip a bit from the summer’s sweltering heat. Nothing like adorning some of my favourite jeans, cords or velvets I haven’t worn in a while with a cable knit sweater. Not to mention blowing the dust off fab boots. How cozy and delightful?

I also love transitioning meals to a heartier fare – you know pasta sauces, chili-con-carne, roasted chicken and soup. Head to a fall fair or market near you to capture the plethora of the harvest. Last weekend me and my bella famiglia held a tomato stewing bash at my folks place. The best parts were the camaraderie, lunch and a relaxing bath after the work was done, ahhhh.

The fact that the days are becoming shorter, doesn’t mean you need to become less active. There are still 24 hours in each day. It’s a perfect time of year to get outside and play.

So folks, get a new book to snuggle up by the fire with and stay in the moment, because the dawning of fall is a delight for all of our senses, certainly something worth stewing over…..
