There was a time when I used to venture out to the stores for everything I needed or wanted to purchase. The idea to shop online wasn’t something I considered. In fact, it intimidated me a little. That changed about 5 years ago. I spotted a gorgeous bangle bracelet at Bealls Deptartment Store and I couldn’t walk away. It was 70% off and I had a coupon code for free shipping. That opened the gates for me. From that point on I became an avid and savvy online shopper. Today, most of my purchases are made online.
Now that October is almost over with, everything and anything related to the upcoming Holiday season has surfaced. It’s that time of year.

Spaghetti squash is a staple in my diet. Although I purchase these frequently throughout the year at the grocery store, the fall season is when I stock up at both Farmers Markets and farm stands. Most times, I need a wagon to carry to carry these luscious, yellow bundles of joy to the checkout counter. This gal doesn’t just buy 2 or 3. On a few occasions, I’ve been gawked at.
The process has begun much to my dismay. The summer apparel is coming off the hangers, out of drawers and being replaced with fall and winter selections. This is not a joyous occasion for me. Although I have an adoration for comfy lounge pants and fluffy socks, my preference will always be summer skirts, tees and flip flops. I held off as long as I could. Fall foliage is here, the nights are chilly and it’s safe to say we won’t see temperatures much past 70 until the spring.
Pumpkin carving has become an art. I’ve seen some extraordinary pumpkins and I am stunned at the details and special effects. It puts my pumpkin carving to shame as I gravitate more towards the traditional triangle eyes, circle nose and half circle mouth. I should hone up on my pumpkin carving skills, I know. And, I will. Soon.
