"Is it fall yet?"



"How about now?"

You're going to have to excuse me while I get this out of my system. I think we're at.. what, 40 days in a row of 100+ temperatures? 41? Anyway, I'm close. And we're just a day away from tying the all-time record of the longest such streak. It finally starts to really fry one's brain. Like say, the first time you get in the car and see 105 on the temp gauge and think, "Ah, we're having a cool day!"

College football season is soclose and I can't wait to have friends over once it's cool enough to hang in the side yard. And grill. And run my oven. And so I'm just waiting. Waiting for fall. Indulge me, won't you?

At my dad's house in Louisiana.

Another one at dad's.

Shake Shack, Madison Square Park, New York City.

At the Dallas Arboretum.

My living room (This'll be my first football season with HDTV!!!)

State Fair of Texas (an October occurrence)

It's just around the corner right? Maybe six weeks? I can make it. I think. Also, did you know that Florence + the Machine did a cover of 'Addicted to Love'? I love it.

we got back this evening from eastern oklahoma where we rented a cabin and even though it was definitely hot, you could feel a coolness in the air that we aren't getting here. rats.
miss my oven, too. and i'm too scared of burning down the neighborhood to grill.
