Hello friends! How was your Monday? I spent the day with Ben and his dad, hauling firewood that we cut and split yesterday! There is a bit of a wind storm going on, and the air is brisk, so I had on my ear flap beanie. Our Maple trees are all showing off their beautiful vibrant leaves, and I was sipping chai all day. This combination makes me feel SO Fall-y! Here are some other things that make me feel Fall-y.
I am totally in to decorated Halloween and Fall cookies at work right now! Here are some of my sugar cookies. (They may look familiar...picture at the top?)
I also made some meringue ghosts!
This is our huge, gorgeous maple tree, right in our view from the deck! We love watching it change throughout the year, but it is at it's most spectacular in Fall!
Izzie and I love the leaves! Plus, now that it's Fall, I get to wear my orange sweatshirt! Kinda reminds me of pumpkins!
Now that the weather is wetter, we have just an overload of mushrooms and fungus! I have never seen so many mushrooms on one island! There are SO many varieties too. We have a mushroom guide book, and it's so fun to identify them (when we can!). Check out this beauty!
And here is another cool growth we found. Pretty awesome!
This is what the weather looked like today. Grey and windy! We went down to the ocean to check it out. Big swells, and white caps as far as the eye can see! Plus, because we were up a ways from the water, you could really lean into the wind and it would support you a bit! I love that feeling, especially when you get a bit of sea spray in your face at the same time!
Todays question: What makes YOU feel Fall-y?
