I love when the weather gets cooler. When I was little, I used to look forward to Fall because it meant we got to go back to school. I loved new running shoes and fresh pencil crayons, and back to school clothes.

And I still love it! There is just something about when the weather turns, and the trees change, and the sky gets gloomy that I absolutely adore.

I’ve been doing a lot of cooking lately, too. Now that it’s cooler I can cook things that take a lot of time in the oven, and all my favorite foods take a lot of time in the oven!

Honey garlic chicken wings–I can’t get enough of them!

Add to that, I’m making my own personal reading more of a priority lately. Maybe it’s the cooler weather, but I’m tuning out everything else on my evenings and weekends and catching up on old favourites as well as those classic novels I always meant to read, but never got to. This is an older picture, but do you know how hard it is to take a selfie and NOT drop your phone while doing this? I got a hand cramp taking this picture. So you get to see the book I was reading last month. This month, it’s The Diary of a Nobody by George and Weedon Grosssmith.

You’ll notice that I read books that are VERY different from the books that I write. I need the separation between work and weekend. It gives me new things to think about… like the fact that The Phantom of the Opera got way darker than I anticipated! I mean, it resurfaced at the end in the way you expect from Victorian literature, but still…

Not the point! 🙂

I’m loving the fall and I hope you are, too! Stay safe, everyone! 🙂

Don’t forget about my newest Amish releases! Jeb’s Wife is on the shelves at Walmart and Target now, and A Precious Christmas Gift is coming soon!
