Now, this post is about the weather.
Like most folks who live in Phoenix, about September I’m pretty tired of the triple digits. Worse, having grown up here, I know that the heat truly won’t break until Halloween. It may be why I love Halloween so much, but it is hard to tell as there is so much to love about Halloween.
Anyway, I and most long-timers have developed rituals to finish summer’s marathon.
Yes, pumpkin spice is one of them. So is decorating my house for Halloween on September 1st (cruelly denied to me by the home reno). I also turn on the oven, sure it’s early in the morning and during the weekend, but I do it and last weekend I even made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.
My friend bought a bunch of light-weight, long sleeve shirts and has been wearing them in case the weather gods are paying attention.
And, I don’t mean to brag, but we are in the double digits for the last few days. We shall take our victories where we find them. Meanwhile, I shall open that new tin of pumpkin spice seasoning. Fall is coming:D
Until next time.
