What's Up with Me: September 1st

Raise your hand if you like apples!
Sometimes I wouldn't raise my hand. But other times I would.

One time that I would raise my hand is when I bite into a delicious Pink Lady apple.


Another would be a juicy red apple. One of my reasons for liking apples is when you bite into them and delicious spurts of watery apple juices appear. Ahhhh.

Another reason I like apples is because I love to make pies. Actually, I love making pie crusts. That's why it's so handy to have a friend who loves making pie fillings. Yay for SMK!!!!

This looks DELICIOUS!!! (is that like the most frequently used word in this post?)

But probably, my utmost favorite thing of all about apples is one word.
Orchard.

Apple picking.

Fall arriving.

September means that Autumn is coming. And we have to farewell summer. Schoolbooks are opened, rakes are brought out of the shed and dusted of cobwebs, and socks and jackets are pulled out of drawers and closets. Everyone feels refreshed by the crisp, golden moments in Fall. And everyone is waiting for that first precious snowflake.
At least, that's how it is around here. It gets to the fourties or thirties, like, the first day of autumn. Then we wait for snow. I don't know why. Maybe it's because no one really enjoys hanging out in the crisp, cool Autumn feel whenever it's actually 34 degrees with a biting wind. No, thank you!
I do enjoy the moments before that. In, say, the 50's, with a chill in the air, peppermint tea-hot chocolate waiting for you at home, and leaves are golden, trees are bare, and OH I can't WAIT for Autumn to really be here!

What's your favorite season?

P.S. I really like this quote over at Danielle's blog.
God's "no" is not a rejection. It's a redirection.
