Random Friday thoughts

It's an indoor day. We've got lightning and thunder, and various downbursts of rain. It's a good day for cleaning my kitchen, folding the stacks of laundry (shh...don't judge). Then later it will be put-the-kids-to-bed time and R & R-for-Mom time.

Maybe my bottle of White Zinfandel will be my friend tonight. You know, I don't think I'll be drinking the whole bottle this time, fun as that was before. But a glass or two and I'll be warm and toasty.

I guess because of school starting, I'm looking forward to Fall already. Fall is my favorite time of year. Cooler temperatures, apple cider and pumpkin pie, changing leaves, holidays, and the feeling of winter looming. Fall feels very much like a transition, and I find comfort in its dying embrace. Bah! Screw it. I just like Fall, alright? ;) Happy weekend, everyone.

L is out of town. I can sit home and read the Bible, or go out boozing. Any other options?

I guess you could stay in boozing or go out and read the bible.

Nah, go out boozing.

I like Fall because it has pretty colors and it smells good. The smell of Fall is the smell of something surprising and good about to happen, and it comes with an anticipatory tingle.

But I am not looking forward to the transition from flip-flops to shoes. I like my feet to feel as though they could be free of me at any moment.

Rainy days are my absolute favorite. Maybe I should live in Seattle.

Fall makes me hungry. I start eating everything. We cook more at home.

One of my favorites: crock pot meals. Roasts. Potatos and carrots. Onions. Or making soup, like brocolli cheese or chicken noodle (with fresh-made noodles).

I'm hungry! :)
