~Simply Pleasures: Apple Cider~

Isn't it the greatest feeling when something you hated becomes something you love? For a long time I hated apple cider, now before you think I'm crazy which I totally am..."all the best people are" you have to understand that my family has only drunk this delicious drink cold. That's right COLD! And apple cider cold, I hated. Only this fall have I found out that you can make a wondrous drink called Hot Cider by warming up your cold cider....duh. And since that great discovery, I haven't been able to stop drinking it. Now I only wish that the 84 degrees out side would turn into sweater weather so that I could really enjoy the fall feeling.
This lovely mug cozy was made by Stephanie

I'm watching the green give into gold
As summer becomes October's cold
Gravity begs
For one final kiss
She drops it to him, as she gives in

As she falls I try to catch her
For one last touch of warmth from summer
As one thing leaves to becomes another again
I remember when
The days were warm and we wore them like skin
Now I feel the effects of October again
I'm watching the green give in to gold
As summer becomes Octobers cold
Summer Again - The Afters
Wondering: If I'll ever travel the world.

Noticing: How 84 degrees out does not feel like fall.
Knowing: "We all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit" (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Opening: New books.
Feeling: Fall is here, despite the heat.
