My Thanksgiving issue of Taste of Home arrived yesterday. Aww turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberries.... how I've missed you. The magazine's arrival did not help the intense anticipation for fall and winter that I've been feeling this year. This summer was.... I don't even know. It happened so fast, was so busy and overwhelming, that I haven't really stopped at any point to think how it was. Our fast paced summer also ruined all of my grand blogging intentions. Sorry.
All I know is I'm craving turkey, my slow-cooker, football, ski goggles, and blankets. Anyone else having these seasonal cravings?
While impatiently awaiting those fall leaves (ps, of which we have very few here in the desert!), I have been trying to force myself to do summer. We have played tennis outside, camped, drank margaritas, swam, traveled, hiked, and watched the Olympics. I have also been canning. I want to store away the best parts of summer to have in the middle of Winter, when I'm totally completely where-is-my-swimsuit-and-the-sun-when-I-wake-up over it.
Off to peel you know what.
