Fall 

  (I honestly don’t know where this photo originated from)

I love this time of year. 

The leaves are changing. You get flavored coffee creamer from now until Christmas. Hot chocolate even tastes better. Especially if you mix it with your coffee. 

Movies are better. Nora Ephron films especially. 

I don’t know,it’s just a good time of year. 

I was talking with a woman from …Florida I think…and she was telling me she moved here specifically for the leaves. 

“We don’t get that there. Yeah we have the beach. But we don’t get sweater weather or snow or the colours. The beach is great for vacation but not for a lifetime.So my husband and I moved. And then I found Mayfield Ice Cream and antique stores and retirement is where it’s at let me tell you.”

She said something like that.

But anyway 

I can tell you 

We (L and I ) went to the Christmas Place 

 

It’s a magical place where Christmas  is all year ’round. It smells like Christmas. It looks like Christmas. There are elves. There’s music. It’s phenomal. Were I a small child I would be asking for the adoption papers. “I want to be an elf”  I would say. 

And no one could change my mind. 

Because I wouldn’t let them. 

I used to believe in Santa. 

Like I used to believe those ring tones we recorded off the radio for our flip phones would last forever. 

But then  IPhone happened. 

So I used to believe in all of that until I was like 7 but hey,I still get excited. 

  You can always count on recipes to be a thing this time of year.
People give me recipes now.

Which is crazy. 

Because they actually make sense to me now. 

I used to burn Pop corn. 

I remember setting jiffy pop on fire 

With real flames 

Because I forgot about the card board. 

The other day I cooked lamb 

And made salad and the dressing for it. 

So Fall. 

And movies 

And food 

And holidays 

It’s about the stories 

I love the stories. 

People will tell you things.Because they love/hate their families. And they Love/hate holidays. And everyone loves to talk about themselves. Science tells us this.we love it more than we love food and money. 

I personally like money. And food?…meh…well I watched a lot of Hannibal …and I’m taking my time  because it only lasts 3 seasons. But I’m all about desserts and champagne.
I personally hope it snows a lot this year. So long as we are inside with power and food and Simon our dog.

So hello October, get ready for the holidays. 

And 

Leave room 

To scare yourself a little. 

A little nightmare 

A little wine 

A little 

House on Haunted Hill

Goes a long way
