    ........fall is upon us. :fall: How are you holding up with the temperature changes??? *snicker* Soon the snow will begin, you'll be able to see your breath crystalize in front of you and after being out in the cold, going back into a warm house will do lovely things to the previously frozen contents of your nose. Are you up for it? :bigsmile:

    Ahhhh.............the wonderland that is winter!

    :blizzard: :coldday: :frostbite: :snowing: :snowangel: :skate:

    Abbey I hope you go coat shopping early. Which reminds me, I don't have a winter coat. Seems my kids made my favorite one disappear............So I'll have to go get one too.

    Thanks for asking. I've seen my breath for the last two days. I need to rethink my walk home from the bus stop. Cold and windy.

    I had a mandatory one hour meeting at work today. Temperature was tolerable so I dress casual...capris, short sleeved shirt and flip flops. I walk into the conference room and everyone has parkas and Ugg boots on. bad. So when I took the bus home, then the good 30 minute walk, it basically turned into a sprint.

    So, to compensate, I'm baking today!!

    See only the die hard can continue to wear flip flops into cold weather. Not sure you are up for that yet.

    Crock pot of ham and bean soup, which I think I've had about 5 bowls of already and freshed baked rolls. Ummm...I'm up to #5 on those.:surprise: (Guests haven't even arrived.) Just finished a nice salad.

    One thing about me is when I want to eat...I EAT. Then I'll go for days on end just eating a half a PBJ. Today is an eating day.

    I guess it's comfort food today.

    I had NO idea pot leaves turned red in the Fall Terry!

    They are really beautiful - I love the Ginko - one of my favorite dinosaur plants.

    (author notes she only knows what pot leaves look like because she saw them on the internet)

    I've already broken out the flannel jammie pants, Abbey, so don't feel bad.

    :rofl: Stang, not really. It's when I don't grow flowers that it appears. Actually it's a "sister" plant to the official pot plant. I know cuz it freaked me out when I first saw it or rather "them" when I didn't get around to weeding the garden for awhile and I had someone who knows about such things (legally) look at it. But dang if it don't look just like it..............

    And I know cuz we had a couple next door to us when I was a kid growing pot in their attic for a whole year.........before the raid. :D

    A plant from the same family, produces similar looking leaves, but this one you don't dry and smoke. :)
