Near Naked Man Escapes Heat, Frightens Neighbors

Today is the first day of fall, and as much as I love summer, I find myself looking forward to the changing seasons. With fall comes cozy, nice things, like hot chocolate. And the lights in the trees on bustling streets. It also means that the holiday line up is fast approaching and for some reason I cannot wait to kick start the season by carving pumpkins. But first it needs to get cold. It is very much the opposite of cold, especially in the duplex tonight. I know this for a fact because after dinner, as we both sat as still as possible so as not to create any extra body heat, Alan said, "I know what I'll do." For a brief moment I thought he might surprise me with an air conditioning system or even just a few kind people he'd found to fan us and feed us grapes. But all he said was, "I'm going to go stand outside in my boxers." And he did.

What! No pictures of Alan in his boxers? Heh.

I echo, "What? No pictures of Alan in his boxers?!" Never mind. The first picture is gor-geous. Nearly asked if that was your house (while being green with envy) then saw Abraham Lincoln look alike in next picture... and thought probably not.
I had my first steaming cup of hot chocolate yesterday, with marshmallows, frothy cream, cinnamon, nutmeg... then I spilled it in the car on the way home. Was still a good cuppa! x

Change is in the air. Even though it is 90, the cooler temperatures at night remind me that true fall is right around the corner.

We've joked about doing the same thing. But since our back porch is next to a school yard, I'm pretty sure such a scene would also involve police.

P.S. I gave you an award on my blog. Because your writing is amazing.

Shaista, I only wish that were my house! haha. I've decided that when I do get a house, it's going to be decorated for every holiday. (well, the good ones anyway).
