Don't forget the 2012 DCU Fic/Art Angels Challenge. You can cross-Challenge!
It's really autumn. The 'official' start isn't for three weeks but you can tell by the light in the morning and throughout the day, really, and at dusk. You can feel it and hear it as the weather grows cooler and the geese start their southward journey. The leaves are beginning to turn and the apples will be at their ripest very soon in the orchards. The cries of football fans can be heard throughout the land! The Blue Moon was gorgeous last night and such a fine tribute to the Goddess. :)
I always get excited at this time of year. I get Spring Fever but Autumn Fever, too. :) It means holidays coming and all sorts of fun, and my birthday included! I have to wait 'til the end of the month (the 27th) but anticipation is all the sweeter. And considering the events of last spring, I'm appreciative of having another birthday to celebrate!
The house is decorated with Autumn/Halloween knickknacks and other things and it's time to stir those cauldrons and enjoy the fannish goodies simmering within! :)
