Fall

I really, really miss fall. I was just saying to myself the other day that I needed to plan a family road trip somewhere north where the leaves properly change color, and you can feel the crispness in the air. But then I realized that the next five years of my life include a high school football game every Friday night during the fall which kind of puts the kibosh on weekend trips. Today we're getting a heavy soak. Which is bringing the temperature down but is not the fall experience I'm looking for!

Of course I think the fact that those are pineapples growing on my back porch doesn't to bring about a feeling of fall either. Also I was planning a trip to the beach tomorrow. Not a very fall-like activity. But I think the rain is going to persist.

I think I just need to do fall things inside. Decorate a bit, make soup and possibly something with pumpkin. Speaking of which, when did pumpkin become the end all be all of fall? I love all things pumpkin, but I think we're going a little overboard.

Ooh, that might be a good fall activity. Snuggle in with knitting and a blanket and a Lord of the Rings marathon. Yes, that is a stretch, and really has nothing to do with fall, but I don't have much to work with here! Honestly I think I just need to design and cast-on for a cozy sweater!

But maybe you do need some knitting where you are to keep your lap warm. So to help in that regard I'm having a little fall BOGO sale. Buy one get one free on all e-books and patterns in my store.

And if you've got some gorgeous fall foliage where you live, take a picture for me! I need to live vicariously through y'all!
