Happy Fall!

It’s the first day of Fall, which happens to be my favorite season. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve already started working on Halloween decorations and –

Wait a second! I’m blogging two days in a row? OMG! It’s the apocalypse! Run! Oh, wait, never mind. It’s just a falling space station. Either way, be sure to duck.

Anyway, since this is my favorite time of the year and I’ve been in a funk lately, I’m trying to cheer myself up by celebrating the season.

I started last night by picking up a bag of Dunkin’ Donuts Pumpkin Spice ground coffee.

Dunkin' Donuts Pumpkin SpiceI would have preferred whole bean, but my grocery store stopped carrying whole beans, the bastards.

I had my first cup this morning and it was a yummy cup of Autumn.

We’ve been having some REALLY sucky weather this past week – mid-to-high 90’s, muggy, ugh. So, I’m really looking forward to this weekend. The temperature will drop twenty degrees between today and Sunday. Yay!

I’m ready for Fall this year. Last year, it took me by surprise and I didn’t want it. Last year’s Summer was so pleasant I never wanted it to end. So, Fall came too early (not really – it was right on time) and Winter seemed to last forever (which it didn’t, Spring came a little early this year.)

This Summer hasn’t been awful but it’s been the second worst since we moved to Maine (the worst was our first Summer). And actually, I’m glad the Summer was a littler rougher than last year. I was starting to lose my appreciation for winter. Last year, I didn’t even enjoy Halloween and didn’t do much decorating at all. This year, I’m already planning to convert the vegetable garden into a graveyard complete with a Grim Reaper.

But first, we have to get through the next two days of heat, humidity and rain…oh, and a possible hurricane.
