I get up a the same time, get home from work at the same time.....it's nice to be back on a schedule. Summer has no schedule. I find that once September rolls around, I tend to organize my time better. I feel like I want to nest. And bake. And go for a lot of walks.
I love walking in the fall. You can just feel the season in your senses.
I came home from my first day back at school crashed into a 20 minute nap. Then I got up, grabbed my Nikon, and took a walk.
Truth be told, I hardly walked. I spent most of my time standing or crouched (does that count as doing squats?) as I photographed the beginning signs of autumn all around me.
I love spotting those first leaves of orange start to land on the sidewalks.
Fruit trees everywhere. Apple tree branches so heavy their branches are resting on the ground. I want to make applesauce and apple pie!
Strange prickly seed pods, a lone plum, and a tomato harvest ripe for the pickin'. But not for me, because this was someone else's stash
Do you remember playing with "helicopter seeds" when you were a child- tossing them into the air and watching them spin as they came down?
Busy spiders and cool numbers painted on an old stone wall.......
Productive squirrels. This one started getting a little tooooooo close for comfort!
I got a glossy advertisement in the mail for Martha Stewart Living magazine. I browsed through the flyer and the marketing began to work it's magic....I wasn't sure I wanted to subscribe.....but of course they are offering a free tote bag.....
Also in the flyer was a mac n' cheese recipe. I am a sucker for good mac n' cheese! So off went the postcard for the subscription. Perhaps Martha will have some ideas for me and my fall "nesting."
I have been taking a bit of a break from All That Jazz as I got ready for back to school....but now I'm feeling inspired to find some autumn goods for our space.
Stay tuned for more on that and a giveaway, in the coming week!
