Can you believe it is already fall? I can! Today, our high is way down: projected to only be 91*! Fall is in the air! I hope you all have great autumns/falls!
I just got out my autumn/fall candles, and am working on finishing up the summer/spring remnants I have been using. I know I have mentioned (more like complained about!) the fact that we don’t have four distinct seasons. One of the things that I do to help make it more “season-ish” is to use different types of scents in the house during the four different seasons.
I don’t enjoy baking, but I do enjoy the scents of traditionally autumn baking smells. So, during this season, I use scents like banana nut bread and warm apple pie. Of course, this is quite misleading to those who don’t realize it’s not an actual pie they are smelling…
During the winter I use a lot of evergreen scents and in the summer/spring I use clean, lemony smells. My daughter isn’t crazy about the scents, so I don’t use them when she is home… which, unfortunately isn’t very often. (Although, she doesn’t mind the evergreen during the holidays, when we have our artificial tree up.)
I haven’t decorated my computer desk in a while, and am thinking about doing so for this fall season. My computer desk is an absolute mess right now… with five piles of reminder notes I have written to myself. I should probably go through those piles before thinking about putting up some seasonal stickers. The things I do to get the seasonal feelings I grew up with!
Do any of you have certain things you like to do to celebrate autumn/fall?
