Fall of Summer Salad

The smell of familiar spices exploded out of the steam which poured out of the tea kettle in billowing white clouds. It settled neatly on top of the aroma of something crisp and buttery baking in the oven.

The wind rattled the windows. It was calling us to come out and play, but the couch was toasty and melted me back into the moment where everything is exactly as it should be.

I wiggled my toes inside my socks and breathed it all in.
