Hot drink season again

hot drinkIt's so hard to believe that it's already that time of the year in North America and Europe again. Where did the summer go?

One of the things I missed when I lived at the equator was the change of seasons. Fall (Autumn, to those of you in the UK) is maybe my favorite season. I love the crisp feel in the air. I enjoy the colors in the trees. When I was a kid, I delighted in the smell of burning leaves. Alas, that's another thing that went by the wayside with the changes in culture.

(I admit, I like coffee year-round.)

Mmm... Just that photo was cockle-warming! I like fall, too--although it still feels like late summer here! (Albeit a rainy one.)

OK, this is 2nd time i've seen something about fall/autumn and it makes my heart just a bit sad/homesick for climates with a few more seasons. Don't get me wrong, ever so thankful to live in se asia, but I miss the crisp fall you just described, esp in CO, golden aspens, smelling football in the air (it's true, you can smell it & not just sweat). Thanks for letting me air this. Now back to my tropical heat & wet. I do still love it here!
