What am I talking about? Fall has finally arrived! Like most of you we have been experiencing summer like conditions throughout the month of October. I can't tell you how refreshing it was to wake up this morning to very cool temperatures, leaves falling, and a nice, steady drizzle (which we so desperately need). I was so excited to finally wear a long sleeve shirt and even a jacket. Believe it or not, most days I had still been sporting my sandals!
Every year when the first sign of Fall arrives I make a quick grocery run to buy all the ingredients for spiced tea. I threw my jacket on this morning and off I went. I couldn't wait to get home and light a candle and savor that first cup of the season. The recipe makes so much I even decided to make up some little jars to give to friends! What is your favorite beverage when the cold winds start blowing?
When I went to make my tea I automatically reached for this mug. That got me to thinking that I hadn't used this particular mug since last winter when I had my spiced tea to drink. I then starting thinking that I also have a particular mug I love to drink hot cocoa out of and I have a favorite tea cup for hot tea. Isn't that funny ~ I guess I am a real "creature" of habit! Do y'all do the same thing?
