Welcome Autumn!

I so agree!

I know many of you are still having very hot weather - we are having very warm days, but the cools nights have arrived and this next week we are to cool down in the daytime, too.

Soon it will be time for sweaters, and cider, and campfires, and hot chocolate.

This evening we are celebrating, in happy coincidence with the Autumnal Equinox, Bilbo and Frodo Baggins birthday!  Yes, it's Hobbit Day and Lindsay is hosting her annual gathering!  I'm slow roasting a turkey and there will all sorts of delights to please a Hobbit!

There will be dancing and I am hoping to teach a Scottish Country Dance we have learned!  More about that soon, but Sarah and I attended a Scottish Country Dance group, with a few friends,  and are learning to do these dances!

If you love autumn too, you may want to check out my Pinterest board.

What a fantastic quote! I agree wholeheartedly.

Yay for sweaters and apple cider. They are just so cozy.

Your Pinterest Board is beautiful. I'm not much of a Pinterest user, but I'm definitely interested in looking at your autumn board.

Have a fantastic "official" first day of fall.

Love all of this! Just re-read LOTR late this summer. What a special set of books that feel like more than "just books." Would love to see pics of the hobbit party!

Happy Fall!

Yay for the coziness of fall!!!!

I made your slow roasted turkey for Thanksgiving last year, but did not write down the steps. Would you mind re-posting your slow cooked turkey method, as time permits? It was the BEST turkey I've ever cooked! (or eaten, for that matter!)
