Joining Forces

In an act of solidarity with Nancy, I am trying to coax the arrival of Fall, or as I like to call it, Autumn. Isn't Autumn a much more romantic name than Fall? I think that may be why Autumn is coyly holding back. She wants to be called by her real name.

I've also decided to start dressing and cooking as though Autumn were already here. Today I am wearing layers, in nice seasonal colors of muted blues and browns. I have a long sleeve blue bib-top blouse on and a 3/4 sleeve brown cropped sweater over it. It's very granola and very Autumn. It helps that my office is about 68 degrees.

And in a desperate act of supplication, I baked a Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze. I brought it to the office today as an Autumnal offering.

I think I'll pick up a Pumpkin Spice Latte on my way home from work.

It could be worse...she could be called 'Thud'. Spring...'Boing'. No matter what though, Summer is still the hottest.

Autumn, yes this could be the reason. From now on Autumn and I love the word Autumnal...it's a good word.

My mouth is watering. Too bad I'm in the end of winter/beginning of spring right now. That means I miss most of Autumn and have to suffer through allergies a second time this year.

I totally agree that Autumn is awesome! I love it! But it strikes me that my autumn experiences might be different in the midwest. What's autumn really like in Texas?? Does it drop from 90 degrees to 75? Your trees don't turn colors, do they? You need to come experience an Indiana autumn and experience it in all it's majesty! Perhaps you could convince your station to send you on a trip to do a story on the 'real autumn experience' ? :)
