Hello Fall. Glad you’re here. I’ve been looking forward to your visit and hope you can stay a long time. I love your gifts of gold. And you wear the colors of fire so well. I love the red, but I don’t wear the orange near as well as you.
You are always so refreshing. Truly a breath of fresh air. It’s great to spend time together on the porch, just lingering in the evening, and somehow you challenge the sun to show off when he sets. You have a way with him. But be careful; he can get a bit hot over things.
I do love the new foods you always bring. You often surprise me. Today I had eggnog ice cream at Braums. Delish! But then you did cause a ruckus between my daughter and I today when I informed her that the eggnog was better than the pumpkin ice cream.
My daughter loves your pumpkins. I have a few sitting around myself. But she is a pumpkinaholic and must have already tried 20 of your different pumpkin foods. Soup (so yummy), mashed, coffee, creamer, cider, tea, smoothies, seeds, cookies, chips, ice cream, candy. She thinks eggnog is too limited. You might experiment a little more with that. You have done such a great job with the squashes. Really, you should broaden your culinary delights using eggnog.
Fall in the Air
And I would be remiss to not mention the way you literally float through the air. The leaves just drop when you arrive heralding your coming. They love to announce your presence. I do wish they would pick up after themselves though.
Which brings me to my next point. I would like to talk about the acorns. Yes, I know it’s your special gift to the squirrels, but I think you must have a fetish with them. You toss them everywhere. They are under my feet and blowing across the porch even now as we speak. You know you stir up Mr. Wind quite a bit. My other friends, those who live at Providence RV Park, mention that during your visit you enjoy rhythmically tossing them on their RVs. I’m not sure they enjoy your musical serenade.
Oh my, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to upset you. Please don’t cry today. I’m really glad to see you; again, Hello Fall. Let’s enjoy the change from iced tea to hot tea together – did you want that pumpkin flavored or do you prefer eggnog?
