Oh yea, and Pumpkins!

I was just on Myrtle Mae's blog and she posted about fall and asked what fall means to you. I forgot to mention my love of pumpkins. They're the epitome of fall.

Coincidentally, I stumbled onto blogthings and did this quiz:

You Are Apple Cider

Smooth and comforting. But downright nasty when cold.
Which cracks me up because like Apple Cider. No sir. Won't have any part of it.

All the catalogs I'm receiving advertise fall fashion. I love fall clothes. Long sleeves and boots. And my Uggs.

But I'm not quite ready for fall. How 'bout you? Is there anything else you want to do this summer before fall comes?

I haven't had ANY ice cream this summer, so I would like to eat some on a hot day.
Maybe today!

OK, I was changing leaves, pretty but soon dead......nice.

I am ready for summer to be over, but I dread winter as usual. I will try to drag out fall as long as I can; lie to myself, pretend I don't see the snow, take out the shovels at the last minute.

well i am never ready for the fall, because that only means that winter is soon around the corner and i hate winter.
Well i was hoping that i would be able to take a vacation, but don't look like that is going to happen unless the sale fails.And will know that by the 7th of Sept. If it goes through i will be on permanant vacation after Nov.

Thanks for checking the blog on my daily digest, just haven't put anything in there but now that i am going through old floppy disks i wanted to add those photos and keep them there so i can get rid of the floppies. Do you like tea pots? i love teapots, and have several as a collection, which now i am getting ready to sell, as i can't take them in the motor home.
And no i wasn't really named after my mother.

Last year 4 pumpkin seeds sproited in my compost pile.... they must have been from the previous year's Hallowe'en pumpkin. So I transplanted them into the garden and we had a nice crop of pumpkins, but none this year unfortunately. I'll actually have to buy one this year!
Did you know that if you carve your name into a tiny pumpkin, by the time it's fully grown, your name will grow too?

Cool trivia about the pumpkins, ex-shammi.
Thanks for the plug, Madz, haha.
Before summer is over (officially September 21 but Labor Day for me) I had hoped to tan my backside but it doesn't look like THAT is going to happen.
I'm off to see what part of fall I am...I dislike apple cider as well.

HA! I'm Changing Fall Leaves--"pretty but soon dead." I guess that's me, alright! :)

It's nowhere close to fall yet here in Atlanta (still in the high 90s) but I can hardly wait for it because it really IS my favorite time of the year!

Oh, I am so ready for fall. It's awful to wish away summer, but the heat of the past two weeks has kept us from enjoying much of it. I am anxious for cool breezes and long sleeves. I can't help myself.

Perhaps one last run for ice cream. . . but otherwise I'm done with summer. Oh, and maybe some more sweet corn.

Luckily our summer will continue on for awhile here. I haven't even made it to the beach yet!
