I actually don’t hate Pumpkin Spice, or pumpkins.
I’m amused by Halloween and the Nightmare Before Christmas.
I can actually load up dogs and go run a trail…
but I kind of hate fall…
I like orange in extremely small doses, and the craft store is a wall o’ orange.
I refuse to decorate in orange.
So I will continue to haul the kayaks on the roof, leave seashells on my dash, make day trips to the bay, sift for sea glass, make stuff out of the bay pebbles I brought back, and the beach sand, and generally go PHHHHHHBBBBBBTTTT! at fall.
Oh, and apparently I live in one of like three places in the world where we get extreme fall foliage color, the mid-Atlantic region.
