Five Things for a Fall Friday

With the temperature yo-yoing like crazy, we’ve seen days as warm as the mid 90’s in the past week. I definitely have a difficult time getting into the Fall spirit, especially when I can still wear shorts and tank tops outside. Louisiana weather is fickle and unpredictable like that. To help me combat the feeling that summer will never end, I have five things to remind me that other seasons do, in fact, exist.

My mums…they are pretty, pretty, and I’ve actually managed to keep them alive…for now….


My latest Halloween find was too cool to pass up, and is there to greet me on my porch when I get home:

I have the Great Pumpkin on DVD, and can watch it as needed…You’re never too old for some medicinal Charlie Brown…luckily I still have kids and can act like I’m watching it for them. Riiiggghhtt.  

  The canned pumpkin shortage in my town continues, but I still managed to find some. Therefore, I can bake up a storm this weekend, and fill my house with the smell of Fall baked goodies.

And if all else fails, I will hit the Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, channel my inner-Linus and bring cooler weather to my town by the sheer force of my will and Autumn sincerity.

I just checked the weather, and the high tomorrow is 89 degrees….

Dang it!
