Slow Down

What is it about fall that makes everyone move a little slower, breathe a little deeper, and just enjoy life?
I was thinking about this this morning, when I heard a car go by at 9:30, and realized that that was the first car I'd heard all morning (I got up at 7). Not that our road is really busy, but there's usually several more cars than that, even on a Saturday.
I just realized in the first sentance of that last paragraph, I used "this this" and "that that". Heh. (Yes, I'm easily amused.)
When I went out to the mailbox at about 10, I just noticed how quiet and peaceful it was. I couldn't hear anything but the breeze and the bugs. Everything just seemed to be basking in the coolness of the morning.
I don't know about you all, but I always feel refreshed when fall gets here. Something about the cool mornings, opening the windows for the first time in months to let the breeze blow through, piling extra blankets on the bed because it actually gets chilly at night, and the beautiful angle of the sunshine..... I don't know. I just like it. I'm pretty sure it's my favorite time of year.

Fall is my favorite time of year as well. There's nothing better that jeans and sweatshirts in the crisp air...raking leaves with Dalton and comfort food!

I love fall too! Its my favorite season. I some how feel more energized and more relaxed all at the same time when fall comes around.

Sentance does not equal sentence. :)
