This week I am thankful for the cool breezes blowing into our little part of the world – Pensacola, Florida. It has been an excruciatingly hot summer here in the northwestern panhandle of Florida. Last week, our temperatures dipped into the high 60’s F. in the mornings and the low 80’s F. during the day. It has been sheer bliss.
Finally, it is beginning to feel like autumn. I am looking forward to steamy cups of hot chocolate enjoyed outside while we are barbecuing, enjoying my hot tub/spa with a glass of Moscato wine, and cool misty morning walks with Sugar and Spice, my Pomeranians. I am ready for some fall like weather!
Autumn always makes me think of family. The grandkids go back to school, the days get shorter, the nights get longer. Halloween is just around the corner! Fall is the prelude to the holiday season which for many is a stressful time of year. I keep things simple and like to spend time with loved ones. What do you do for the holidays?
These cooler temperatures have made me nostalgic for times long ago when my children were young and still living at home. We always had myriads of activities to keep us busy, what with school, dances, homework, crafts, etc. Thankfully my oldest daughter, Tabitha is coming for a visit from California in a week or so. I am so excited!

Yes, I am truly thankful for the cool sea breezes bring autumn along on their headwinds. What are you thankful for this week?
Thanks for visiting and spending some time with me. I will see you again,
