OK, so the ground does not EXACTLY look like that yet, but I have noticed a leaf here and there turning color and falling to the ground.
BUT I AM MOST THANKFUL FOR [the changing of seasons] and THE INTRODUCTION OF THE SEASONAL PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE!
It’s Back! Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte Has Officially Returned for Fall
While some people are trying to prolong the last bits of summer, the emergence of the Pumpkin Spice Latte
So, I thought that I had a special advantage of getting early access to the pumpkin spice latte [because I’m part of the ‘GOLD CLUB’ where on my phone I had a notification stating that I have early access] and I text my friend all excited that we have
ALL the coffee/food chains are promoting the PUMPKIN flavor by trying to distract us from the inevitable beginning of sweater weather. I, for one, LOVE the changing of the seasons. I am so ready for the long sleeved season.
It is going to be chilly this weekend, yes, but next week comes another heat wave.
SO WHAT DID I DO ?
MY NEXT STOP HAD TO BE TO PEET’S COFFEE…TO TRY THEIR VERSION OF THE PUMPKIN LATTE.
EVERY THURSDAY I MEET UP WITH A FEW OF MY GIRL FRIENDS AT PEET’S TO DO A BIT OF CROCHETING/KNITTING (ok, I’m the only one who crochets)
but I LOVE the changing of the seasons- so much fun!
THIS IS THURSDAY [or it was when I started writing this post]
AND I AM DEFINITELY
THANKFUL FOR PUMPKIN LATTES!
I’m sort of getting excited for fall and winter, too. I have enjoyed a dark chocolate pumpkin coffee or two from Peet’s. I am liking the temperature these days and enjoying wearing pants and sweaters again. Plus, the cold is a good excuse for cuddling loved ones. So, I’m looking forward to that aspect of it. Jan loves colder weather. So, maybe he’ll want to spend some more time outside and go for walks soon? Who knows? It’s possible. The holidays are coming. So, we’ll get to enjoy those festivities soon enough too. I don’t miss summer much yet. I’m kind of glad to revisit fall this year. Summer seemed long and hot. At least fall is more temperate.
I feel exactly the same way!
