Happy First Day of Fall!
Perhaps I have mentioned in passing (maybe a dozen or so times, but who's counting?) that I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of fall. We used to call it autumn, too. Why doesn't anyone around here call it that anymore?
Anyway, to get things rolling, I'm going to have a Pumpkin Spice Latte today. I know that they have been available for ages, but I like to enjoy my First PSL on the First Day of Fall. Like a little ceremony, to usher in my favorite season (technically, fall is in a tie with Jacaranda Season, but the Jacarandas have gone green-only for now, so fall has pulled ahead in the rankings).
Here's a partial list of things I treasure about fall: Pumpkins, cooler weather for walking (like that's ever going to happen!), crackly leaves, candles, giving out Halloween candy, my birthday, things that are orange, Thanksgiving, fires in the fireplace, sweaters (especially those that are chocolate-brown), and oh, did I mention All Things Pumpkin?
One of the few things I don't love? The way my hair gets all full of static and stands on end, just before falling flat as a pancake. But that's a problem I can live with. Bring on the lattes!
So, who's with me on my quest for Ultimate Autumnal Happiness? What are your favorite things about
Oh, and next time you are in one of our local coffee shops, keep an eye out for me. I'll be the happy one with the really big Pumpkin Spice Latte (no whip), and the sticky-up hair.
