You know it's Fall when

you get a sudden desire to bake bread - and in the oven, not the bread machine
you start thinking longingly of soups
you make chicken soup
you have to worry about sitting down - a cat might suddenly appear and not want to leave
you wonder if its too early in the year to turn on the heat
you think hand quilting is very appealing as it puts a warm blanket on your lap
the kids start looking for slippers
and asking where their long sleeve shirts are
the cats will spend a long while on your lap, not jumping off after 5 minutes
you decide its time to put the flannel sheets on the bed
and find the blanket

Yes, its getting to be fall here. Last week we were still in shorts and t-shirts, now its more like long sleeves and jeans and even sweatshirts in the mornings and evenings. I'm sure we still have some fluctuating weather, but it is definitely fall (and sometimes feels more like winter).

You left out "when the rains start again and don't really let up until February" No wait, that's Oregon. And they haven't started here yet, so we've just been hanging around in the low 60s with glorious fall color.

But yeah, fall is very distinctive and it's my favorite time of the year!

Well, it snowed here last week. Not much, but some was still around when I got back from work. :)
