Fall is in the air

Here in Missouri, the temperature has very slowly started going down. In the morning and at night there is a definite chill in the air and the days aren’t smoldering. If you stand in the shade it actually feels amazing outside. That also has something to do with the miraculous lack of humidity.

Autumn is coming folks.

I’m also noticing the acorns that have been falling on my street are turning brown (as in brown before falling) which is a pretty good indicator here.

I am absolutely loving this weather.

Gods only know how long it will last though. Missouri. You can get all four seasons in one week so too hard to really tell. Not an exact science.

But the signs of the wheel turning are pretty clear.

Soon there will be pumpkin everything everywhere, so be prepared.

 And I get to wear my boots again! I have thigh high brown boots that are my favoritest thing ever.

Now unrelated stuff.

I’ve gotten new stuff, which I will be sharing pictures of tomorrow.

Frey has become a new player in my life and I’ll share more about that as well. Honestly, with my relationship with his sister it was only a matter of time.

I had purchased Sebation’s Visions of Vanaheim and I have been working my way through that. I will let you guys know about that as well as I will start talking about my budding work with the Wolf Tribe.

I’m thinking of posting some recipes too. Any thoughts on that would be appreciated. Keep in mind, I went to culinary school so I have all kinds of stuff.

Until tomorrow my loves.

Yearning

I think the people in my life are sick of hearing me say how much I can’t wait for summer to be over and fall to begin.

Have I mentioned Autumn is my favorite season?

I feel an almost homesickness type yearning for fall. Like it is the place I truly belong, but it’s a season not an actual place so it is a rather complicated feeling.

I just love everything about the fall.

The colors.

The smell in the air.

The sound of the crunching leaves.

The weather, I love jacket weather.

Halloween, because what is there not to love about Halloween?

Pumpkin flavored everything (yes, I am one of those people).

Just the feel to the season.

You know that warm fuzzy feeling people get around Christmas time? That the same way I feel that way about Autumn and Halloween. Not to mention my style works better in the cooler weather. I am not a summer girl (despite my birthday being smack in the middle of summer), I don’t do well with heat. Not to mention I don’t like warm weather clothes. I don’t do sleeveless shirts (without some sort of jacket over) and shorts. I just don’t like the way they look on me.

Plus, usually starting in October is when new episodes of my shows come on. The list has been growing. First and foremost, Supernatural, then (in no particular order) Flash, Arrow, Reign, American Horror Story, Gotham, and Originals. I used to watch Witches of East End, but unfortunately Lifetime cancelled it. It was one of my favorite shows.

But in Autumn I actually go out more. One of my favorite things to do is going to the park, but when it is hot, well screw that. Also going to be taking more trips to Old St. Charles. This is where the Celtic store and one of the only metaphysical shops I’ve been able to find is at. It’s nicer to go when you don’t have to walk around in the heat. I really love it up there, despite the almost hour drive it takes to get there.

The only good things about summer is swimming, Irish Fest and the Renaissance Faire. I wish they didn’t have those events in the summer, but I have no way of doing anything about that.

I just can’t wait until this heat passes.

In the meantime, I’m trying to do some studying up on The Wild Hunt. That’s what I do, research.

Spring Time

I really want to be a Spring person. I really do.

The typical temperature range is perfect for me. I love rain, though I don’t enjoy driving in it because of traffic. I swear when stuff starts falling from the sky people forget how to drive. Rain helps me sleep like a baby, especially if it is a thunder storm. Thor likes to tell me it’s my own personal lullaby.

I’ve wanted to have my own garden for a couple of years now. We had one a few years back, and I loved tending to it. We were growing our own fruits and vegetables, but the garden had to be taken out. I don’t remember why. Was going to start one up this year, but now that I’m hoping to move out by the end of the year, it’s kind of pointless.

I can’t seem to get myself to be a spring person.

I can’t do the bright or pastel colors. I simply don’t like the way it looks on me. I wear mostly dark colors if not black. Going along with my self esteem issues I tend not to feel comfortable wearing shorter sleeves or shorts.

As a pagan I kind of feel like I’m supposed to love spring. It’s the end of winter, time of birth. The reawakening of Earth.

I just can’t seem to get into it. Every once in awhile (if it’s warm enough) I’ll go out and play in the rain. But this time of the year my sinuses go nutso and I know hot humid weather is just around the corner.

I’m trying. I think if maybe I go out and enjoy the weather more I might be able to get more into the spirit of the season.

Seriously, I’m more of a fall girl.

I prefer the changing leaves to flowers.
