Now that Halloween is over, we move into late fall. With the time change, comes a change in weather, as well. In addition to getting dark earlier, it is getting cooler and the weather can also be wetter. Activities are moved from the sunny, warm outside, to the coziness of indoors. We look for things to do that don't require us to spend quite so much time in the fall chill. Movies, either at the theatre or at home, are a great way to idle away a chilly and wet afternoon. I like going to museums, too. It's both fun and educational. For the art buffs, spending time at an art gallery is a wonderful way to view works of art by new and emerging artists. Many museums have fabulous art collections on loan from other cities and countries, too. But the best way to spend these fall days is, I think, reconnecting with family and friends. What can be better than sitting around a toasty kitchen baking cookies and drinking cider? Don't bake? Not to worry! There are numerous board games to play. You might consider popping popcorn and spending a lazy evening taking turns reading aloud from your favorite books. What about trying out a new type of tea and engaging instimulation conversation on current events...your own type of French salon, if you will. However you plan to spend your weekend, be sure to include some quality time with the people, or frogs, that you love. It will warm your heart...and make you glow. See you on Monday!
