Signs of Autumn

I love lists!

(Yes, I know the season hasn't technically started, but in my brain, seasons all start on the first of the month. September 1, December 1, March 1, June 1. And yes, I know it's going to be 90 this weekend. I'm in denial.)

1. It was cold enough to wear flannel to bed the past two nights. Flannel. I cannot express the joy this brings me.
2. Dewey has been getting cuddlier as the temperature has been dropping.
3. Pumpkin spice lattes are back!
4. Halloween candy is starting to appear in stores. Reese's pumpkins... mmmm.
5. I saw pumpkins for sale for the first time yesterday, and on the way to work today I actually saw a few at someone's house.
6. The leaves are starting to change with a vengeance, although I sort of feel like this is earlier than it usually happens.
7. All I want to do is read and drink tea and bake things.

My kitties get cuddlier as the temps drop, but it hasn't happened here yet. Maryse posted about the leaves yesterday - she heard a spot on NPR about it. The leaves are changing earlier because of how dry it's been this year - it's a sign of tree stress.

What's wrong with just reading and drinking tea and baking?

We had pleasant temps in the mid-80s last weekend, but it's been back in the 90s during the week. Sorry those temps are heading northward!

:D The pumpkin lattes are how Chris heralds in Autumn. He was thrilled last night when we got to the coffee shop for knitting.

I'm waiting for the maples to turn, I need them to make my wedding boquet. They've got about two weeks before I start driving north ;)

I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the year yesterday, and it was gooooooooooood.

No where near that here - it's 100 degrees today.

I long for the days of Egg Nog lattes myself.

Killian is a cuddler anyway - but in the fall and winter he even cuddles in the recliner with me...not just in bed at night.

The baking gene appears at the beginning of September, didn't you know that!!! I know I keep seeing these wonderful recipes for baked goods...

And I can hardly wait to put my flannel sheets on the bed...
