Friday Fave

I'd first thought of posting something uber-helpful and geared towards writing, but I'm afraid I simply can't. Why? Because it's lovely and cool (50s--woow-hooray-zip-zam-zowee!) and damp and the maples are turning their leaf tips yellow and I've baked every day this week and... I'm just feelin' the autumnal love!

Anyway, today's fave is the scent of cold damp concrete, like that of the sidewalk outside the window. It's a complete harmony between a natural phenomena and man made. I don't mean this in the sense of freshly poured cement, but the way concrete gets on days when it's not quite raining and not quite cold, but close on both accounts. Clean, and rich, and deep. *big breath* It's a bit distracting.

 I can smell it through the walls on days like this, I swear. Mmm...

What about you? What are your favorite cool weather thingymabobs?


  1. Hmm...I think one of my favorite autumn smells is a warm, clean house and something baking in the oven. It doesn't necessarily matter what it is, as long as it's homemade! The scent of goodies baking mixed with the background fresh, clean smell is heavenly. =)

    By the way, I'm in your short stories group. Sorry it's taken me so long to drop by!

  2. Hi quidforquill; nice to *meet* you! I'm still making the rounds myself.

    The whole clean-house thing + baking; ooooh yeaaah. In fact, I just played Suzy Homemaker today (windows wide open, eek! sooo chilly!) and then roasted a chicken in the oven. LOL.
