It’s Fall. Which means pumpkin spice everything, cozy sweaters and the season with a reason to stay in, watch Netflix, wear warm socks and drink a big o glass of red wine, right? Sadly, this year, that assumption is wrong. Mother Nature has not synced up to my Google calendar.
What is going on here?! We have a cold day, followed by five hot days and then the tease of a few more cold days, replaced by a twelve day heat wave!!! I don’t mean to sound whiny but seriously…my pedi has been on point and my legs have been shaved for going on 6 months now. A girl needs a break.
So what does one do when the weather does not want to cooperate? Why not make the best of it? This November, enjoy Acorn Squash whether it’s prepared sweet or savory. Crank that Air Conditioner, make some chili and cheer on your favorite football team. Pick up a pumpkin and tell yourself you’ll bake the seeds as a healthy snack (when we all know it’s easier to buy them). Finally, enjoy this heat wave while it lasts because you know in month or two we will all be complaining about El Nino and how the cold weather is killing our vibe.
Happy Fall Y’all!
