Good morning, friends, and welcome to another beautiful autumn Friday! As of late, the weather around my neck of the global woods has been quite uneven – one moment it’s so cold, we’re all breaking out our toques and parkas, and the next it’s so dank and humid, we’re firing up the air conditioners for one last summery go-round. But there’s only one way this all ends, and that’s with snow. I suppose that’ll be here soon enough.
So being the end of the work week and all, it’s time for another edition of Fall Fun Fridays, the casual little blogging challenge I’ve been, let’s face it, whiffing hardcore with my friends Jay of The Scented Library and Julie of The Redolent Mermaid, who are decidedly not whiffing it. Excuses, excuses, but my Fall has been rather disrupted by ongoing renovations to our apartment. They’re not going super well, I keep injuring myself (I’m looking down at a throbbing cut on my thumb right now for which I probably should have sought stitches) and I haven’t been able to put out any of my usual decorations, including my beloved Halloween town. Here, let’s take a peek at it from two seasons ago; that’ll make me feel peppier.
Anyhow, all that to say I haven’t exactly been feeling the Fall this year, as the kids might say. Looks like it’ll take another emergency infusion of Disney’s absolutely bonkers approach to the season to set things right – fortunate, since we’ll be back in about two weeks’ time. 🙂
This week’s prompt contemplated hands-on activities – your favourite Fall recipe, craft or some other DIY-able. I’m actually right in the midst of putting together some fortifying chicken stew for dinner tonight with my parents – that seems like a very autumn dish. But it won’t be ready for – *checks time* – oh, another five or so hours! So until the timer goes off, I’d kindly direct you on over to my friends’ blogs, where they’re sure to have pulled out all the seasonal stops. Happy weekend, friends; hope you get a few moments to get out there and enjoy all it has to offer.
