First of all, Today is Polly's birthday. Everyone say Happy Birthday to Polly! It's also the UNOFFICIAL start to Fall. The real start was a week or so ago, but you see October on the calendar and you know it's autumn. Polly tells a story about her birthday when she was a kid. She is a fan of pumpkin pie and her "Birthday Cake" every year was more often a "Birthday Pumpkin Pie."
I listen to this story in horror as I would never choose a pumpkin pie over cake. Some people who know me (and some who read this blog) know that I have ranted the past several years regarding the over-pumpkinization of our fair land. It's a ridiculous thing to get worked up over, but someone has to do it. This is what I found at the grocery store 2 days ago…..
Dear God, no. And looked what was keeping it company….
I have learned to avoid coffee shops this time of year because of this…...
I'm now getting horrible things like this sent to me via instagram from other like minded folk. Thanks. I think.
I stole this wonderful picture from the internet, but It spoke to me……..
October is also a few other things…. It's Halloween season, it's Getting Ready For Quilt Market Season , (and the reason some of your favorite quilt blogs are a bit spotty lately) and it's also Post Season Baseball. Forgive me while I try not to have a nervous breakdown. Go Tigers !
