Are you influenced by the colours of nature? Do you make subtle changes to your wardrobe according to the season? Autumn is my favourite time of year! I love pumpkin lattes, all things caramel, scented candles, cranberry coloured cozy throws and dried flowers. My home reflects my

I recently read that introverts often prefer autumn. I love reading, listening to music, and snuggling with one of those throws. I don't have a fireplace but a glowing candle is second best.

I am an accessories woman. I am not dressed without a scarf and earrings. My choice of accessories is definitely seasonal. My tunic will become festive with a rhinestone brooch in the winter but right now is a time of cranberries and seed pods.

I've worked two half days this week. I really enjoy half day assignments which are not so popular with younger folk who prefer a whole days' wages.
The rain has started signalling the end of our beautiful October. I'll try to walk in all weathers.
Or else the treadmill...I live next door to a community centre and I have access to an indoor swimming pool in my recreation complex. It's time to begin a new program.

Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love — that makes life and nature harmonize. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a pefect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot, letter to Miss Lewis, 1st October 1841
