It's Fall, my fav time of year!

This is my favorite season. It has the best weather, the best food, the best colors and two fun holidays - well, I guess if you consider my birthday a holiday. Which you should.

The Best Weather: Crisp, cool, sunny days (like today) - and good storms. I also like DARK. I may be alone on this, but I like the whole day lights saving thing that makes it dark when I go to work and dark when I come home. Too much light on me is not a good thing, you see. I don't know why I like it, I just do. Its creepy. Sue me.

The Best Food: Pumpkin Lattes, Halloween candy, Tuurrrky and all the trimmings. Need I say more?

The Best Colors: My entire house is done in Autumn colors, and most of my clothes. Muted greens, oranges, reds, yellows and purples. One of my favorite crayons was burnt sienna - which is a fall color.

Holidays and other fun: Thanksgiving rocks because it is a 'food' holiday. All you do is eat. My kind of day. Halloween - the perfect excuse to be myself, and again, eat. My birthday - self explanatory. It is going to be good this year because it sucked last year.

You also have the beginning of the Christmas season - remember Fall doesn't end until late December. You have the stores playing Christmas music and decorations everywhere and possibly a snow event or two. I love snow, I just hate it when I have to go to work in it and deal with idiots in traffic. Its also the beginning of ski season! One of these days I'll get my butt back up there.

So there you have it - my very positive and upbeat post for today. Don't fall over.

Things going on with me lately:

1. I totally don't feel like blogging.

2. I've been craving apple juice and grape juice and drinking large quantities of them. These are not usual beverages for me.

3. I wore a sweatshirt-coat today. First time in many months. I'm kinda cold. Highly unusual for a person who has her bedroom air conditioning on 365 days a year. (I'm not sick that I know of and I'm not pregnant.)

4. I'm having trouble sleeping again. Last night I got up at 3am and started milling about. I accidentally woke up Jim and this was the conversation:

Jim: What the hell are you doing?
Me: Drinking grape juice.
Jim: At 3am?
Me: Yeah.
Jim: What is wrong with you?
Me: I don't know.
Jim: Are you OK?
Me: Yeah, I guess.
Jim: (continues to look at me strangely for several minutes) Are you SURE? You are acting very strange and sneaky.

5. I am pissed off at a company that illegally billed my debit card for product I did not order. I am filing charges. I am really eloquent like Erin Brokovich when I deal with customer service on the phone, too. Especially when I've been on hold for 20 minutes.

No, I am not dead.

Yet. Ha. There has been nothing of note to post lately and I barely have material today. It will be boring, I assure you. This weekend my parents took us out for a belated happy Anniversary dinner to Mi Tierra Mexian Restaurant, which has the best steak fajitas on the planet. They put an addictive chemical in them, I SWEAR. I'm salivating just thinking about it now. I paired my fajitas nicely with Sangria.

The weather has been beautiful this weekend, and after dinner we stopped by a local vegetable and fruit stand by our house out in the boonies. I grabbed an assload of stuff - I just can't help myself in those places. I was also mesmerized by some pepper plants because they were labeled "Sexy Peppers". Who can resist that kind of marketing? Jim pulled out some cash he had in his pocket to get it for me (what a sweetie!) and the owner lady threw in a jalepeno plant! Score!! I took some pics of all the pretty peppers that I now have in back yard and don't know where to put. Thrilling, I know, but its all I've got.

Sunday has been watch-football-all-day since Jim opted for the Sunday Ticket with our switch over to satellite. He is in heaven. I cut up all my fresh veges and fruits and have been snacking on them all day with turkey slices, cheese and crackers. I also took pics of that. (You can see all the pics on my flickr.) That is the weekend wrap-up, folks. Weeeeeeee!
