"First of all then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified
in every way."
-1 Timothy 2:1-2 ESV

Treat yourself to some season themed coffee while you're out & about. One of my favorite coffee shops, Jameson Brown, has a pumpkin pie steamer that tastes like pumpkin pie in a cup. It's amazing. (Sorry, Jameson Brown is only here in Pasadena...guess you'll have to come visit me.)
Starbucks has a pumpkin spice latte that is yummy, & a few other autumn-y drinks that I haven't tried yet.
The warmness of the coffee will make any chilly, rainy, stormy day instantly brighter.
macarons & coffee--a lovely combination. (If you're reading this from the Pasadena area, try 'lette macarons. It's a cute little shop on Fair Oaks & Colorado)
okay, this isn't a cup of coffee that I have had, but that's just awesome.

Since it's my cousin's birthday (& my friend's), everyone should go rake their leaves & jump in the piles. We can all celebrate together. & for those of you who live in places that have summer all year 'round (lucky!!), I'm afraid you'll have to jump in imaginary piles of leaves.
this is a pretty good seized leaf pile.
Or...if you're a hard core leaf jumper...

I'm not a cold weather person. I enjoy summer & years of it. However, there is something awesome about curling up with a hot drink, a blanket, & a book before a roaring fire while chilly winds blow the leaves around outside. & the scenery is beautiful with all the colors.
So--for Thursday--grab a good book, or if reading isn't your thing, a good movie, some hot apple cider, a soft fuzzy blanket, & curl up in your favorite comfy chair. If you have a fireplace, turn it on. If you have loved ones with you, snuggle close.
I want a fireplace!
snuggling is the best--especially in cold weather.

"There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!"
-Percy Bysshe Shelley
