So of course I picked it up and put it in my purse where it crumbled a bit, broke in half, and lost a bit of its luster.
I stuck it in my hair anyway once I got to work. Because, nothing says “I refuse to be a nameless cog in the corporate machine” like dead leaves on top of your head.
Yes, fall is almost here… and while I don’t follow football…. And am not enrolled in school…. And haven’t celebrated the equinox in an embarrassingly long time…. And I live in the Bay Area of California so really the “weather change” is awfully mild compared to say, Missouri or Florida or even Sacramento….I still get a bit excited about the season change…
Change from sunglasses to scarves
Change from skirts and sandals to pants and boots
Change from salad to soup
Change from regular to flannel sheets
Change from green to red, orange, yellow, brown leaves
Change from barbeques to potlucks
And then there is the anticipation of Halloween…
The “Birthday Season” that for me starts in September and goes nonstop until January…
The dusting off of cookie sheets and loaf pans….
I don’t think I am quite ready for fall… but I will be soon!
