I know I have been kind of MIA this week. October 15th is the extension deadline for filing income tax returns, and I have been frantically trying to finish the ones that I have to do.
But, that doesn't keep me from being grateful today! Gratitude Friday was started by Diana of Creative Structures, who inspired us to write each week about things we are grateful for.
Today I am oh so grateful that the hot summer is over and the cooler fall is here. When we got back from Italy, it was hot! I mean almost 100 degrees. The A/C ran all day, but it did cool off at night. Now our high is about 80 degrees, and it is actually cold at night. I even turned on the heat one morning (because I had left some windows open overnight).
I am also excited about the soups and stews that go so well with the fall season. And, of course, the scrumptious red wines that go with the soups and stews. Yum!
Fall is here, and that makes me gratefully happy!
