Today has been absolutely one of those days I don't get very often. It was a rainy Saturday, fall day. When it was predicted that rain was in the forecast for today, all I could think was it would be the perfect day for making a big pot of homemade vegetable beef soup and watching some Halloween flicks!

More importantly though it was a day for relaxing and just kicking back! Suffice it to say I don't get days like this very often. Life tends to run along the 'hustle-bustle' lines the vast majority of the time. So when a day like this presents itself, its best to embrace it and make the very most of it.

So today lent itself to the wonderful smells of homemade soup brewing in the Crock pot preceded by freshly baked cupcakes that were decorated in the colors of Halloween. was indeed that one of a kind perfect fall day. The rain subsided in the afternoon, followed by glimpses of the sun before it faded into the darkness of the evening hours. The ground looks like a leaf covered canvas; a result of the drenching rains. The cooler temps have encouraged the trees to change into their fall decor; providing the beauty of a colored landscape that can only be seen this time of year.

Its been a near perfect day. I say perfect because there's only one thing left to do...that's go get under a warm afghan with a good book while I listen to a little smooth jazz...oh...and let's not forget that nice cup of coffee tinged with a hint of cinnamon and vanilla creamer! Ummm! What a perfectly unforgettable fall day!

Until next time....Dawn :)
