“Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it! Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness, and the peoples in his faithfulness.”
When I think of September, I always think of an old song I remember from my childhood that said, “See you in September, see you when the summer’s through.” With school days beginning after Labor Day (which I was never excited about), the song’s melody and lyrics were melancholy for me. But my, how things change! Now, the mention of September takes me to pleasant thoughts of college football, warm days followed by cool nights, perfectly round bales of hay in the pasture, and of course those beautiful sunsets! I enjoy everything that September offers and here are five of my favorites!
As summer turns to fall, I start thinking of cups of hot chocolate, espressos, and lattes! One of my favorites for this cooler weather is pumpkin spice latte. And my favorite place to enjoy this cup of autumn is…you guessed it…on my patio! I am including this easy recipe:As I have mentioned before, I have developed allergies in the last few years. I always have enjoyed scented candles, but most of them now cause all those allergic reactions! But who doesn’t love the warm scent of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, lavender, bay leaves, apples, and oranges?!My alternative is to add these ingredients to water and slowly simmer my own concoction on the stovetop. No allergic reactions to these lovely natural scents of autumn! When I catch up on housekeeping, gardening, cooking, and yes…blogging, I love to take a few minutes to relax and peruse my favorite magazines. I’ve just gotten my hands on the fall editions of Southern Lady, Southern Living, and Victoria’s Autumn Bliss! As a Southern girl, their recipes and ideas are just the best!
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
What are some of your favorite things about September? I love to hear from you!!
