It's happened!

Well, it's finally happened. Have you seen it at your house? Have you noticed? What? You don't know what I'm talking about? Well, here at my home, the sun is shining just a tad bit different than usual.

This happens about this time every year and I always look forward to it. Something about the way the sun is shining is out of the ordinary. Almost more clear. For years, I thought my mom and I were the only ones to notice this phenomenon. I've recently discovered that others notice it, too. So, while this may sound like strange ramblings on this post, I am ECSTATIC. Why? Do you know what this means? Fall is coming!!! Not anytime soon, mind you, but it is on it's way.

So, to celebrate the fact that the sun is shining in a rather uncommon manner today, I am going to light my favorite fall candle tonight!! Which one? Aaahhh- Pumpkin Pie by Yankee Candle. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I'll be thinking of y'all tonight as I enjoy it's scent and while I'm STILL working on "the afghan".

But i'm certainly waiting for it, and when it does i'll be making a run to the closet place that sells Yankee Candles and purchase my Pumpkin Spice and Macintosh!!! I smile to myself as i remember your comments on my blog!! I'll let you know when the "change" happens!!
Blessings to you and yours..

LOL, I've never noticed that least not this soon.

I love Yankee Candles! I just purchased 'Home Sweet Home' because it was the scent of the month. (o:

I haven't noticed either about the sun. I definitely do notice when the haze is gone because then the mountains are crystal clear.

I used to live a mile from the Yankee Candle factory in MA. Sometimes the wasting vanilla beans or pumpkin pie spices were a great thing, othertimes almost overwhelming.

My mother calls me every year and says the shadows are moving and I know fall is near! Hooray!!! Praise be to our Lord who created the seasons for our enjoyment and benefit! Have a great day!
