it's like a little treasure hunt
or something. that's what leslie says and I agree. am now optimistically looking ahead in the direction of fall. because it's official: summer is over. personally, I believe that summer ends the day right after labor day but this year I've really been fighting it. I admit, I've been hanging on tight to the deflated remains of summer '07. no mistaking the crisp quality of the air today, though. and that scent too, what is that? I don't even know what it is but wow, it's there and I can smell it. delightful is what it is and as much as I claim to be a summertime kind of girl, I do wholeheartedly enjoy the onset of fall. proof of that is in my list, which leslie requested from me a couple of days ago. not like she had to twist my arm or anything. her list is here, as is a full explanation of the brilliant little idea she affectionately swiped from summer (the person, not the season).
click and ye shall find. these are the things I want to do this fall:
I want to make a big pot of this. and bake this. and fill the entire house with the scent of this.
and read this. and this. and hopefully this.
and take classes here. and maybe one here.
and purchase one of these (in marigold, please) because it would look marvelous with my favorite pair of boots and some purple tights.
and take her workshop.
and take them here to do some looking and walking around. and bring home a couple of these.
and see this. and this looks interesting too.
and go on a date with this this really hot guy I know. kind of hoping he'll take me here. then maybe I can wear something nice for a change, something kind of like this.
and finish setting up my workspace in the basement so I can make more messes like this.
and look for a pair of these because apparently, I'm going to need them.
and see this before it's gone. and then see this. which probably won't be near as good as this. I could be wrong but probably not. I mean, I hope I'm wrong. I'm just saying.
and make these, but into pendants and rings instead. and make about a million of these.
and make these with her. I have a truckload of cardboard toilet paper tubes saved. all of them waiting to be magically transformed.
and plant these for spring. which feels like a hundred years from now.
and do this all around the neighborhood. partly because I don't have one of these yet and I enjoy a nice healthy sweat. but also because I can't just walk around the block like a normal person. I have them and I'm not afraid to use them. well, maybe a little.
okay. now it's your turn.
