The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Fall Back Time ChangeAre you thinking Thanksgiving? Christmas? Hanukkah?

For me, it’s the ‘Fall Back’ moment when I get to turn my clock back an hour. Humming the old Andy Williams tune, I flit happily through the house on that dear November day and reset all my clocks. And then for the extra hour, I sleep.

williams-andy-Yep. And I swear my dreams are even sweeter.

My family gamely gamely stays up  extra late on Most Wonderful Time of the Year Eve, but I laugh at their foolishness and have happy dreams to gird me for the times ahead.

I’ll need that extra sleep for all the busyness to come…turkey thawing, pumpkin mashing, toy store wrestling matches, etc. And in the midst of all the holiday insanity rush, I’ll be seeking to replicate that once-a-year haven of relaxation…by reading. That’s the other great escape, and it provides sweet dreams of another kind.

What will I be reading this holiday season? I’m so glad you asked!

    And now you know what tune is stuck in my head. And it is the most wonderful time of the year! It’s still pumpkin/apple season to me. The trees around here look as if they’ve caught fire – just beautiful. But what a way to jump into the big holiday season. The reviews are coming on the boxed set and they’re great!

    Yes it’s a lovely season not too cold and so colorful, with two big holidays that allow me to see my children and their families.

    I’m still waiting to get my extra hour of sleep! The days are long, Fall colors blaze the woodsy areas and a light sweater keeps me warm. Loving this time of year. 🙂
