1. I still don’t have my fall decorations out yet, but I wanted to change my front door. I had a cute scarecrow wreath the last year or two, but for some reason I just didn’t want “cute” this year. Hobby Lobby had flower stems on sale half off, so I got a few and put them in the holder I used for spring flowers. I wasn’t sure how fall colors would work with the lighter green holder, but I like how it turned out:
2. A comfy pink sweater. I don’t even remember where or when I got it, but I have been taking it in and out of the closet for a couple of years thinking that pink is a spring/summer color and I didn’t have any fall/winter clothes to wear with it. But it goes well with denim and a few other things. It fits and feels just right.
3. Peanut Butter Rice Krispie treats with melted chocolate chips on top. Meant to get a picture — but they don’t last too long around here!
4. Music in general and Christian music in particular. Next to the Bible and possibly Christian books, nothing ministers to my heart like music.
5.Warmer days. I know I just said cooler days recently, and in fact, last weekend’s weather was perfect for my tastes: cool but not cold, sunshiny, and breezy. But our furnace went out this week! We have a fireplace, one room has a gas heater, and we have a portable electric heater, so we’ll be ok if it gets cold again, but it is nice to have this little reprieve from the coldness. If the furnace had to go out, I’m glad it happened now and not in January when we’re in the 20s.
Bonus: Short and cute
