The last few days here in Mobile have been cool. Not cold, but sunny and mid-70s with a cool breeze. Perfect fall weather. I didn’t want to jump the gun and turn off the a/c too soon just to lose all the nice temperature in the house right before the weather turns warm again and have to cool the whole house again. However, we jumped on the bandwagon yesterday. I flipped off the a/c, threw open all the windows in the living room, dining room, and kitchen and let the beautiful breeze bring some fresh cool air into the house. We left the bedroom windows closed because I cannot sleep in a room that’s been filled with fresh allergens — especially since the house next door is vacant and the yard hasn’t been mowed in almost six months, it’s nothing but grass up to your hip and weed trees over there.
We left the windows open all night and I woke up to an amazingly cool & cozy home. My old slippers are still buried in a box in the garage, so I think I’ll sit down today and crochet me a pair. I found a really cute pattern a couple of weeks ago and now is the perfect time to make it. I think Jesse could also use a sweater. If I could knit him some pants, that would be a good idea too. All he has are onesies and shorts. It’s alright though, he’s all torso and not much leg, so his socks pretty much meet his shorts at the knee leaving just a hint of kneecap exposed. I think he’ll be fine. 😉
Anyhow, all this rambling about the gorgeous weather here in the South, slippers, and knitting is just me being excited. The house is clean (if you don’t count a little kid clutter). I really just want to throw on one of my many sweaters that I’ve been missing and eyeing in my closet, bake some sugar cookie cut-outs with Jeremy, snuggle on the couch under a blanket with my loves, watch some old kid movies (like The Land Before Time – a new favorite of his), crochet some slippers, bake some bread, and start work on a few choice Christmas gifts.
Sounds fabulous, doesn’t it?! What are you up to now that the weather has turned?
