Well if there was any doubt in North Texas that fall/winter has arrived, well this weekend announced her entrance with recorded breaking low temperatures. This Native Texan family was caught off guard. Camping boy was hanging in his hammock out in the woods Sunday night when the frost of change of season caught him at 34 degrees. He entered the door trying to get warm and fussing about how his comforter didn't keep him warm enough.
Each year I love the first cold front. I become all hyper with ideas of what I am going to do with this change of season. Let's see....snuggle up with a blanket to read a good book
....head to the sewing room to sew
....grab some hand work that I have stored during the hot months
...curl up with a good movie
Too many choices.
I just enjoyed the cold weekend wearing double-layers of socks. I spent time starting an upholstery job...a much loved chair needs a face lift. I grabbed out my winter bedding and put away the light comforter. I put on my to-do list that it is time to attack the ugly walls in my bedroom. We all gathered around the television to watch our favorite University team NOT pull off a win, while enjoying a winter meal.
We had to have our favorite warm meal.

Now I need to go grab my basil and harvest before another cold front nips at her leaves.
What do you enjoy doing when the first cold front comes to visit?
