Somewhere around mid-to-late August the whole family gets depressed....
|It looks a little something like this...|
And then September rolls around, school starts, and you begin to think, "We're almost there. We're almost there. Just hang on!" And you just barely get through September with your sanity.
Then October comes... Oh, October! HOW I LOVE YOU!
Have I mentioned that October is my favorite month of the entire year?! I truly come alive in October.
So, today is the day I've been waiting for all year. This morning (when I inexplicably awoke at 5:30 AM) it was still hot. But, around 8:30 AM a stiff breeze swept over the city and blew in the sweetest, coolest air I think I've ever felt in my life. I burst out giggling with joy and called to the whole family to join me on the back porch. Now my windows are all open. They haven't been opened since last April! And I am so serenely happy.
So, how do I celebrate a wonderful day like this, the return of Autumn?
With Isa Chandra's Tofu Scramble and some homemade guacamole on stove-top tortillas, of course. Then I chased my huge breakfast with some of Dreena Burton's Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies. My belly is happy. SO happy!
|The Tardis cookie jar is full once again. Life is good!|
Autumn wreaths, the use of my kitchen again (baking!), Trunk or Treat, cool weather, lower energy bills, and an endless supply of cheesy horror films on cable. It's like heaven.
What's your favorite thing about Autumn, and how do you like to celebrate it?
