Cooling Down

The weather is changing!



It's time to pull out the winter coats, scarves, and boots...



build a comforting fire...

and make a steaming cup of hot chocolate.

I hope you have yourself a warm and relaxing Sunday.

I love your post as you plan for cool weather. Great Autumn color in your photos, love how the scarves match the foliage. Wow, you've already had your first snow. We've had our first frost and needed layers and light jackets. Afternoons have been warm so we are still enjoying our Indian summer. Great photos.
Enjoy your Sunday evening.

Indeed that's the invitation we get over here too - for warm and relaxing Sunday.

I'm taking advantage of last sun and warmth in the garden because soon soon the Winter chaos is here and I'll have to wait for Spring.

Don't we love when we have all Seasons?

Happy Autumn to you too. What are those cookies, Jess? Do share!

love,
T

That sounds perfect, warm and cosy sitting near the fire with a cup of hot chocolate! I like the sound of the white hot chocolate ( I haven't tried white hot chocolate before) and those cookies look just to yummy!
