Welcome back pumpkin spice chai lattes and reading by the fire. Greetings corn mazes and fresh school supplies. I've missed you pumpkin pancakes and chili. The only thing that causes a moment's hesitation concerning the onset of fall is rain, and lots of it. Here in the Pacific Northwest, you need rain gear to make it through the season. This year I am determined to get a pair of boots so my toes can stay dry. I have not bought a new rain coat since I was sixteen and pushing carts at Safeway. At 6 a.m. in the rain. What a way to greet the day!
On my list this fall? A new rain coat, large umbrella, boots for all, and a cup of tea to keep you warm when you come in from the rain. Cozy warm.
