Is Summer Over?

In response to Brianne's last post....

I have found myself saying "that's it, I give up...let's just get a tree" and have been listening to Christmas music...I claim it's to help the baby prepare for life outside the womb (he will be born in December after all) but I think it has more to do with the weather and my attitude. I even went to Starbucks last night for a caramel apple cider.

I hope summer isn't over, but if it is then I'll need to embrace the things I love about Fall and Winter....pumpkin treats, cookies, coco, cider...see? it's not that bad!

Oh, and speaking of finding myself saying odd things...tonight while getting a braxton hicks contraction I said to Jeff.. "you try walking around with a charlie horse in your gut!" We were out in public and I kind of wonder if anyone heard me. oh well, it's just the crazy pregnant lady!

Just reading about your autumn goodies (I love pumpkin) gets me in the mood for it, and brightened my day - i can make apple sauce and use all the fruit that comes into season late - I love it! Thanks for brightening my day (I've been in a bad mood about the weather).

oooh, i forgot about applesauce...thanks for the reminder Ilse! I like to make mine in the crockpot so I don't have to worry about it and I just love how the smell fills the house!

I love your post- I am looking forward to all the fun things that happen in fall- my favorite is when the leaves change.
I shared a story based on your post too :-)
