Today was a wonderful day. It's the first day of autumn. My husband and I went to the apple orchard and got all sorts of wonderful goodies. Fall is definitely my favorite time of year b/c of the harvest. It is one of the reasons why I like being in the Midwest. I wouldn't be able to celebrate the harvest the way I do now. I love seeing the combines harvest the corn and soy. I love going to the pumpkin patch and orchard. I love corn mazes. I love the smell of the corn fields. Yes, they have a smell. One of the best smells in the world. Anyway, I love the area I live and I wish people would appreciate all of those things more rather than focus on the cold weather that we go through. Yes, it's kind of a pain, especially if you drive in it, but I have found that if you dress for the weather, it's not so bad and I don't mind knitting myself up a scarf to keep warm.
