IT’S OFFICIALLY THE FIRST DAY OF FALL!!!

Prepare for this delicious season by stocking up on pocket change for lattes and pumpkin bagels!  Also, let me know your favorite fall recipes, and maybe I’ll blog about my favorite…

Fun Fact:  According to Glamour magazine, hats and the color emerald green are in for fall 2013.

I just wanted to wish you guys a happy fall on the account that today actually IS the first day of fall.  Enjoy Thanksgiving and Halloween and Homecoming and all of those other fun celebrations that come with this wonderful season!

Have a good Monday tomorrow (as good as any Monday can really be anyway…), and I’ll post soon!

Here’s a lovely fall poem for you:

Fall

by Edward Hirsch

Fall, falling, fallen. That's the way the season 
Changes its tense in the long-haired maples 
That dot the road; the veiny hand-shaped leaves 
Redden on their branches (in a fiery competition 
With the final remaining cardinals) and then 
Begin to sidle and float through the air, at last 
Settling into colorful layers carpeting the ground. 
At twilight the light, too, is layered in the trees 
In a season of odd, dusky congruences—a scarlet tanager
And the odor of burning leaves, a golden retriever 
Loping down the center of a wide street and the sun 
Setting behind smoke-filled trees in the distance, 
A gap opening up in the treetops and a bruised cloud 
Blamelessly filling the space with purples. Everything 
Changes and moves in the split second between summer's 
Sprawling past and winter's hard revision, one moment 
Pulling out of the station according to schedule, 
Another moment arriving on the next platform. It 
Happens almost like clockwork: the leaves drift away 
From their branches and gather slowly at our feet, 
Sliding over our ankles, and the season begins moving 
Around us even as its colorful weather moves us, 
Even as it pulls us into its dusty, twilit pockets. 
And every year there is a brief, startling moment 
When we pause in the middle of a long walk home and 
Suddenly feel something invisible and weightless 
Touching our shoulders, sweeping down from the air: 
It is the autumn wind pressing against our bodies; 
It is the changing light of fall falling on us.
