First Day of Fall
I know that for many of you fall started a month ago. But where I live in Montgomery County in Texas, fall is never in a rush to arrive. That's usually fine by us since October does see a gradual decline in temperature and humidity. We can actually sit outside late afternoons and watch the birds flit around the bird bath and feeders and the deer come wandering by.
But this morning, the first read cool spell of the season arrived. It's not six in the morning yet, but when I got my computer and coffee to sit outside and write as the sun comes up, the damp coolness sent me back inside for a blanket. I found it absolutely exhilarating. Makes me want to take a long walk along the lake and bake bread. Instead, I'll sit here and put the finishing touches on Trumped-Up Charges, a book set in the blistering heat of a Dallas summer. But I'll be thinking about pumpkin pie and hot chocolate as I do.
And tonight, I'll curl up under a blanket with a good book. If you are, too, hope it's an Intrigue. You might like BIG SHOT, the 3rd book in my Big "D" Dad series. Your weather might be cool. But Durk Lambert is HOT!
