The Long Hot Summer!

Is it just me or does this summer seem like it has lasted for two years. It has been so hot and so dry; it feels like autumn will NEVER get here! So what’s a person to do? One solution would be not to wait and start the fall season now.
The next question would be – How are you going to do that? A good question! I know that I can’t do anything about the temperature outside, but let me make a suggestion. Try changing the atmosphere inside your home.
The sense of smell is one of the most powerful memory triggers we have. Many great memories can be unlocked simply by smelling a certain fragrance. I know that whenever I smell leaves burning, I always think back to when I was a child and we would burn leaves in the alley behind my Grandmother’s house. Think about some of the other scents that remind you of fall. How many of us love the smell of fresh baked goods – a delicious apple or pumpkin pie. Maybe you’re a fan of banana bread or carrot cake. Think of the days when it finally gets cool enough to burn a fire to warm you.
So as you can see the key to changing the season ahead of time might not be as hard as you think! Find a well made scented candle in a scent you enjoy. Light your candle and watch as the pleasant feelings and memories of the autumn season fill your mind.
