Fall on Hold


The calendar says #fall is here and so does Starbucks and Facebook memories, but Mother Nature is resisting.

A new #season is like this thing with ingredients and instructions that all measure up just so like our favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies. You know, great grandma’s “secret” recipe, that at one time, came off of the bag of Tollhouse chocolate chips. That one. It sort of feels like we forgot the chocolate chips or even the butter and we can’t make cookies until we get back to the store or wander down to our neighbors to borrow said missing ingredients. Do people still do that? Maybe we will wait on Amazon. “Alexa, send me some brown sugar!”

The Pumpkin Spice Latte has been on the menu since August 1st, women have done their fall boutique shop hops in their cute seasonal graphic tees and families have ventured out to the patch to find their perfect pumpkins, but farmers are waiting patiently to harvest their crops.

Even though it’s 90 degrees, energy bill obsessed folks are ready to turn off the air conditioning and young girls are dying to get out their flannel collection and dive into a pile of leaves for the perfect Instagram photo op. For goodness sakes, Menards has Christmas on display but yet the leaves haven’t even turned the slightest shade from green.

In the meantime, while we are patiently waiting for fall to officially arrive, I’ll be at Starbucks sipping on a Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew.

At least we have that.
