Well, hey there, everyone. Can you believe it's September? No? Me either - it just feels like extra August to me.
I'm not going to get all into the rapid push to fall. Just let it be said I am not a friend of all things pumpkin. My mother used to make a pumpkin curry soup that, minus mushrooms, was delightful. I can manage a slice of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving (though it is for sure, my last preferred choice as these things go), but that's enough for me. It's not like I drink tons of coffee, anyway, so the Pumpkin Spice Latte (and analogs) don't impede my ability to enjoy coffee, or not enjoy it.
Anyway, it's September, and we're closing in on the end of another year, which is bananas. A guy on the radio today said it's 115 til Christmas, which is also bananas.
If I were a smart woman, I'd start shopping early. But things can turn on a dime, and I don't mind being a little rushed in December. I do my best impulse shopping then.
Speaking of, I bought myself a little something over the weekend and it arrived yesterday.
