Fall creeping in

How do I know this? It’s not the leaves slowly changing colors and starting to abandon the trees. Not even the crisper mornings. Football, maybe. But I got a little bit of thrill when I saw the signs in my local Target. It’s the return of this.


Yes, it’s the Pumpkin Spice. And I’m sure it’s gluten-free enough for me. I spent way too much time researching this only to find that Starbucks’ official statement is that they cannot guarantee a gluten-free production line so they cannot make the “gluten-free” statement. The actual ingredients in this are gluten-free so I took a risk. I know. Not smart considering that Play Doh and a square centimeter of communion bread caused big obvious reactions. I’m happy to say that I had some minor bloating from this and it could have easily been the dairy or sugar, both of which I can deal with. Yay fall!!!

Another sign of fall. FINALLY getting the back porch finished. All that is left is the painting and screening. The painting is starting today!

Today is going to be a LONG DAY. We have an all day training session at school. Then a much needed manicure. And PTO meeting. And then I get to come home and drown in some bubble to read this. Another sign of fall is the September release of my absolute favorite series. I just spent a few weeks re-reading the other 33 books in the series so I’m ready for the 34th installment! It’s hard to believe I began reading these over 10 years ago while still living in Memphis.

Happy Tuesday!
