A Gorgeous Day....

I have to tell you....it is a chilly Fall day here today. Our temperature is supposed to reach about 73 degrees, but we have a strong North wind gusting at about 20 miles an hour. I absolutely LOVE it! I am burning my Pumpkin Spice Candles.
I am airing out my home and have already had to shut a couple of windows cause it was getting too cold. Tangie is happily sitting in the open window watching the leaves swirling by.
What a great day in the neighborhood!

Yep that does sound like a crisp fall day! I think it is suppose to be cooler tomorrow in my neck of the woods (GA). I know I love it when I can open my windows up and let the fresh air drift through.

Tangie looks like she is enjoying the cool weather also. Thinking ummm mice should be out before to long...

Love days like this. I'm sitting next to a space heater(cause I'm always cold) and my dog and I are fighting over who gets more room in front of it! Chihuahua's are always cold too-We are a perfect match! :)
Thanks for sharing your day!

I LOVE that feeling!! There is truly nothing better than opening the windows and breathing in the fresh, Fall air.

Carrie said...

Oh I love days like that I need to open up some windows around here!

My kitties love sitting in the window, too. Sometimes, when there is a nice breeze coming in, I like to watch the happiness on their faces as the feel the wind in their hair. It's like they know they're free. :)

It started off cool here...then it warmed up...I'm ready for the cooler weather again...

Your cat is beautiful

I would love a day like that, too! Sounds divine.

I love the fall weather. It's 61 right now and it's nice to have the windows open for a while, but then it gets too chilly. I love it best when I don't have to pay for the oil to heat the house :)

I hope you enjoyed your entire gorgeous day!

take care,
Dawn

Libby said...

We have a chilly day here too. I like it and I don't cause I know winter is knocking.. We only reached 60. It is nice to bundle up and read a book when it is chilly. Have a spot of tea!

I love fall! I just wished that the weather would make up its mind. Last two weeks cool and breezy this last weekend and now hot and humid! I just can't stand FL weather.

Daphine said...

I wish for a day like this (temperature wise) real soon. I can almost smell the aroma of your candle burning. Speaking of, it's time for me to stock on the different scents for fall. Beautiful post!

What a pretty kitty!

I love opening the windows and letting the crisp air in too. I love fall....just hope it lasts a little longer. I'm not ready for winter yet!!

I love fall days with the crockpot, and candles, and the crisp weather...Looks similar at our house!

A crisp cool fall day that lets you bring in the fresh air is a beautiful thing...especially if it blows all your leaves onto the neighbors yard hehe.

We had some beautiful sunshine today- it's going back and forth this week between sun and rain, with a bit of that fall chill in the air now!
Love the pictures...your cat is really beautiful!

Oh, I love days like this. Unfortunately, we were gone from early morning til late at night...ugh, I don't like days like that. :)

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Hi Darlene~
It sounds just wonderful! I love those kind of days! And that candle burning looks so cozy! Your cat looks content to watch the outdoors versus experience the cold weather... :) ( At least that is how our cats are!)

Have a good (and warm!) night! :)
