there is no denying it. fall is here. really here. but geesh what is its hurry???!!! it sure feels like this fall is on fast forward. one day green, the next day it looked like this, and in a week or 2 those will all be bare! ACK! slow down fall, please! i am not ready for the stark landscape of winter. not yet. alas i cannot stop time or even pause it. i guess i'll go bake more pie. yeah fall, and the thought of what comes next, makes me bake. (and cook, and eat) good, but not good. at least the clouds seemed to have parted today. perhaps i should go find a bench and hop up. that has to be better for me than baking and eating.
