Fall is gray days that match gray nail polish. There's pot roast for dinner one day and then BBQ ribs for lunch the next day. Cooked low and slow, in keeping with the pace of the season. Warm, comfort food, is followed by lots and lots of college football. T.J. hardly has any weekends off so if he wants to pace anxiously during the Clemson game, and flip back and forth from espn/cbs/abc and repeat, all day long, who am I to say no?
Fall is staying in our sweatpants, only breaking out to see a movie or browse Barnes and Noble for a new book to read. Then its back into sweat pants for a nap on the couch.
The days are getting shorter, but everything seems to slow down. It's a time to rest up before the hectic holiday season arrives. I know soon it will be too cold and our daily walks will be more chore, less cheerful so I'm savoring all the cozy, warm days curled up on the couch with my love (and the pup who occasionally sneaks onto the couch and rests his head so sweetly that I can't kick him off).
