A touch of cool in the weather this morning - barely 70 degrees - it feels wonderful.
Mentally, it's autumn - the daylight hours are shorter, shadows are longer. Tropical heat is still here - the air conditioner runs around the clock.
Shop displays woo us to pretend we live "up north" with displays of pumpkins and fallen leaves, sweaters and long sleeved shirts. Teasing the senses - mulled apple cider is presented with its spicy aroma - samples given freely.
So, likewise, I'm faking autumn at home, tucking faux fallen leaves about. Bringing in the autumn colors as we head into our daughters favorite holiday - Halloween!
