Magical March: Day 3

Some things I like about March/Autumn:

  • birthdays. Lots of friends and family have their birthdays in March.
  • autumn leaves. Not sweeping them up - jumping in them!
  • cool evenings
  • getting out the quilt so I can sleep with a quilt and a feather doona/duvet.
  • eating casseroles again. I'm so sick of salad by the end of summer.
  • going for walks without getting too hot
  • playing outside without burning your bum on the slide at the park. (On nooo, I don't ride the slide..... : )
  • wearing jeans again. Woolly tights with long boots. Scarves. Hats. Anything knitted or felted. Flannelet pajamas.
  • rain. New growth on my plants that survived the summer somehow.....
Finally, after a yucky day today we have had a cool change accompanied by rain. I'm sitting here listening to the rain and the breeze rustling the trees. The curtains in my room are breathing - in and out, in and out.
I'm taking a deep breath and letting the summer out.........

Welcome, Autumn!
