Fall, fall, fall... can somebody PLEASE tell me where fall is?? I know it doesn't really exist in our part of Texas but every year, I hold onto some type of hope that cool crisp air is going to roll in from the north (sigh). I just want to pull out my warm sweaters and boots and head out in search for apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and some piping hot cider.
Instead, we are still strutting around in purple shorts and bug spray. It's not ideal but I try to remind myself that January will be well worth the heat that we have to endure right now. I have heard rumors that it used to get much cooler here (hard for me to believe) and jackets were a requirement at one time or another. I guess we are just another victim of this crazy warm-up that seems to be effecting everybody. So, we will just smell our leaf blossoms and call it quits... we will light our fall scented candles and bake pumpkin muffins non-the-less.
