Saying Hello to Autumn

It’s finally fall. The leaves are changing colors, the air is brisk and cold, and it is finally the time of year when drinking five cups of coffee is justified, because of the cold weather.

 

My cat Ozzy is being a bit of a terror and a bit of a sweetheart as is the way with most kittens.

I’d been battling some hives, and it is finally overwith, which makes me think perhaps the weather or the allergens in the air in Ohio, were taking it’s toll on me. Maybe my body needed to get used to Ohio. I do love it here. I love the coolness of the air, I love sitting and typing away here while my cat sits on my lap trying to figure out what it is I am doing, and I love the person that I am with.

I should mention: I am not an easy woman to love. Not at all. I am a bit moody and hot tempered, though I do cook rather well, and clean up nicely. We all have our quirks and things we believe to be faults. I believe that self love is understanding the madness you have and still being present and still being okay with yourself and not being angry. I do not think self love is trips to the spa or bubble baths with wine goblets on hand. That is a fake sort of love.¬†Self love is taking a shower even when you’re depressed and do not want to get out of bed. It is looking outside and noticing the beauty in the trees, and the birds that sing.

Autumn. I love this time of year so much. I love making cookies and cakes for my children, baking bread at home in efforts to keep the chill away, and a good steaming cup of strong Bustelo coffee with boiled milk so that the coffee stays hot longer. I love boots and sweaters and crocheting up a storm for all the people I love. This is my time of year indeed. And this year, I get to spend it with the most wonderful lady this side of Ohio. She makes things better.

On that note, I have made yet another video which I have posted on youtube, of my artwork in my art journal.

Please do subscribe. And if you make anything inspired by my videos, please do leave a comment and let me know!

 

I used the same products I used in the last video, nothing really different.
