This is problematic considering i am currently living and melting in phx, az.
It was a whopping 103 degrees today...even at the half of our september.
My cravings are for my neck to be nuzzled by my favorite scarvies and for my hands to play hide and seek in my stripey gloves. I long to wear tights with boots and long sleeves under shorter ones. I have even convinced myself that this fall...i am going to sport some sort of fuzzy hat...inspired by jennifer aniston in her new movie previews...you know the gray one that she wears whilst she swoons over the dashing aaron ekhart....sigh.
It is no surprise then, that this evenings dinner had a hint of longing for fall as well. Despite the wretched temps outside my doors...i served to my children tomato soup with homemade garlic croutons atop and colby jack toasted sammies. Does anything beat a toasted cheese sammy?
It is taking every restraint that i have to hold off for a bit on the mugs full of hot chocolate and mini mushy marshies. (although, am quite sure they are soon to come seeing as how all items were purchased during this mornings trip to the grocer).
I long for your arrival. My Phoenix fall wardrobe is patiently waiting your return and relief from this dreadful hot cooker that we live in. (no offense, phoenix) I will welcome you with all of the traditions of the season and promise to not complain once when I wake with cold toes or dry elbows. We will celebrate your bounty and all the comes with you. Thank you for bringing candy corn and pumpkins...apple pies and apple spiced candles. Thank you for being a season when we can wear gray and black everyday if we so choose. Please hurry fall...I cannot wait for you much longer. I have already purchased my first pair of slippers in anticipation of your arrival. Please do hurry, Fall.
...is anyone else awaiting the arrival of this time of year?...
