Almost Autumn

Howdy, all!! 🍂

As we inch towards the official start of autumn, and the temperatures have slowly started to cool down, I find myself gravitating towards autumnal colors. 🎨

The first fall item to come out for air from my dresser? My grandpa socks: a mix of scholarly and fun, combined!

Socks are my first fall item to bring out for the season change. It’s not cold (thankfully), but it’s not hot either. I get chilly easily, so a pair of socks works for me, especially for that early morning/late evening chill that starts around this time.

Here are some more photos I took that are a nice warm-up to the fall season ahead:

Pillsbury pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls I made!
Adding to my visual journal – a collection of leaves 🍂

Autumn is definitely the time I go on dates with nature. I sit out and enjoy the weather, or take a stroll… ❤️ I go on plenty of nature dates with me, myself and I…don’t I?

I don’t always just hang out with leaves; consistently going to coffee shops is my social life…I can get my freelance work, blogging, and Internet surfing done in a public place and refresh my human interaction skills (“How are you?” “Have a good day!” Those small interactions. Smiling at people. Etc.)

My otherwise solo activities like learning Swedish and collecting dead leaves off the ground are great and all, but I like to try to keep up with some basic human interaction so I don’t lose what I’ve gained as far as improving my social skills. Even just small chatting interactions…it’s a win for me.

Oh yeah – for the start of October (spooky month!), I look forward to showing you all my creepy ventriloquist doll I’ve had since I was a kid (I myself am not a ventriloquist by the way, I just have a doll). I figure, I have had this doll nearly my whole life, so why not give a little blurb about him on here??) 😀

See ya!

  1. Great socks! And great description: “My grandpa socks: a mix of scholarly and fun, combined!” LOL! Your shot of them on the bench is retro and pretty, like a notecard from the ’70s. Also, I know what you mean about being so into solitary stuff that you have to consciously interact with others to keep those skills fresh. I’m glad it’s working for you and that you have a home away from home at the coffee shops 🙂 Looking forward to seeing your ventriloquist doll!
