I can taste the change in the air. It tastes like... Three Musketeers. And Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Maybe a Nutter Butter that I can't decide if I like. Certainly candy corn that I know I don't like. And those Hershey's miniatures that I know I do like. Seriously, how did it get to be October already? And why is there no Halloween candy in my house yet?
I am still clinging to summer, wearing short sleeves in the day and forgetting to turn on the heat at night. It was a great summer, and I was sad to see it end. But I love fall too. Especially perfectly crisp blue-sky days. We've had a bunch of those lately, and I'm looking forward to more before winter descends.
I'm also looking forward to three more book events this month:
