My Favorite Season

I know I'm a few weeks late and winter is just around the corner but only recently has the temperature dropped to the 50's and 60's.  I am lucky to live on the east coast of the US to witness every autumn season and the beautiful changing of the leaves from green to golds, orange and browns.  I love going apple and pumpkin picking. I love the color of pumpkins and squashes but end up giving them to neighbors because I'm not a of fan of eating pumpkin.

It's Halloween today and even though not many kids go trick-or-treating door to door anymore, I still get a warm fuzzy feeling seeing them in their cute store bought or homemade costumes.  Oh and how they lighten up when they see you dropped chocolate in their bags!  If you have Hershey's I think they text their friends that "this house has chocolate!" and you start getting swarms of them.

I've made three apple pies in as many weeks.  Somehow as much as I love making and eating them I don't make them any other time of the year.  I don't think there isn't anything I don't love about this season!  Time to curl up by the fireplace with my scented pinecones, drink some orange-almond tea and cut another slice of pie!
What's your favorite season? Why?

Tee Hee Productions & Senior Moments

As I raced downstairs this morning and as my foot hit the landing I completely forget what I came down there for.  Instead, I clicked on the TV and tweeted my "senior moment" in the hopes it would spark a memory and find comfort in senior moment numbers. A few minutes later APearlLife sent me a tweet link of this card (left pic) of the Boomer Series Cards of Tee Hee Productions.  I literally laughed out loud.  

Not only are some of her greeting cards absolutely humorous, her artistry and skill are magnificent.  Along with this series she makes custom pet portraits, and one-of-a-kind paintings, drawings and note cards.  You should check her shop out.

By the way, I still have no clue why I came downstairs but since I'm here I guess I will go wash the dishes.
