Not Quite Ready

Summer came late to Portland this year and though I can't stand HOT weather, I'm not quite ready for it to be over.  Though the next couple of days are supposed to be SSG melting temps--97 & 95 degrees (SSG tends to melt any time it gets above 80)--I'm happy to see P-Town still has a little bit of summer left in her. 


However, this morning?  The light and crisp air?  They were fall.  Does this happen to you guys too?  Where all of a sudden shadows hit the ground just a little bit differently, that breeze is decidedly cooler and all you can think of are scarves, hot cider and the color orange?

It got me to thinking--this whole Summer To Do List business was kind of fun.  What if I did it for FALL too?  

Currently on the list:

  • Apple picking
  • Dress up for Halloween
  • Carve a pumpkin
  • Make the chicken parmesan that's on Bon Appetite's September cover
And that's all I got.  Are you guys ready for summer to be over?  And if so, what are your MUST do's for fall?

Fall is definitely creeping in around here. The bug songs are changing and the crickets are chiming in. The humidity has taken a brief leave (thank god). Just last night on the way home I noticed the woods peppered with a few trees with leaves starting to turn red. I love it. I L-O-V-E fall!

I am NEVER ready for summer to be over. I guess that's the July birthday girl in me:) Can't get enough of it!

Fall is alright, but winter is downright depressing. The only thing good about winter is the holidays.

I have cancelled your birthday pool party tomorrow. I am taking you to lunch at one of my favorite restaurants! Be sure to watch for it on my post. There will be sugar!

I have to tell you SSG that I think you have a thing for Virginia gals. I discovered today that Miss Big Hair Envy is about an hour up the road. Time for a roadtrip!
