A Wordless Wednesday: take and post a picture of the fallen leaves outside.
Do you work well under pressure when it’s crunch time?
It’s pretty much the only way I work. I am a procrastinator to the core and then rush to get everything done at the last minute. It was especially bad when I was in school (high school, college). I would always put off my homework til the last minute, even more so if it was a big paper or project. Somehow when I knew time was running out it was easier for me to sit down and focus and get things done. However, I graduated 2nd in my class in high school and with a GPA no lower than 3.71/4.00 in my college endeavors (I have one Bachelor’s and two Master’s). So I think it’s safe to say that it’s worked out alright for me… :-)
Is there any fall flavor that turns your stomach?
Okay, so here is a funny story. When I was a little kid I was convinced that mince pie was “mints” pie. I wanted some so bad that I tortured my grandmother all day to give me some, even though she said I wouldn’t like it. Eventually she gave in and gave me a taste. Of course she was right and I have never had it again. To this day I actually don’t know what is in mince pie, but I think I’ll stick with the pumpkin pie thanks!
Tell us about your favorite autumnal edible treat.
Oh geez, I don’t know if I can pick just one. From Halloween candy to Thanksgiving dinner everything is delicious! I am certainly partial to Thanksgiving dinner. I love the turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, and stuffing; and don’t even get me started on the dessert. Pumpkin pie, apple pie, and in my family many other items. We always have enough food for an army, and enough dessert for TWO! Oh, and don’t forget apple cider; I love apple cider! I was so excited to see it at the grocery store recently. Ok, I am getting overwhelmed thinking about all this food. I think I’ll go get a snack. :-)
Pumpkin spiced flavored everything: can’t get enough OR enough already!
I am definitely on the side of can’t get enough. I love Pumpkin Spice everything. I was so happy when Pumpkin Spice coffee came back to the local Dunkin Donuts. I have already had my first slice on pumpkin pie. I even tried the Pumpkin Pie Coolatta from Dunks. I saw an ad earlier for Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses and thought “I need to try those”. Basically, by the time Thanksgiving rolls around I’ll probably turn into a giant pumpkin. :-)
Which smell lets you know that it is autumn?
There are so many good smells that come with autumn, most of which are associated with food. Whether it is the Thanksgiving turkey, a pumpkin pie, or a mug of hot apple cider, everything smells delicious. Another autumn smell that I particularly enjoy is the smell of fall air. The air just smells different in the autumn. It’s that cool, crisp smell that you missed all summer. I also really love the smell of burning wood, like that which comes from people starting to use their fireplaces as the temperatures continue to drop. Autumn might be my favorite time of year… winter, not so much.
So, I know I am little late to the party, but this week’s song is “Let It Go” from the movie Frozen. We just watched the movie a couple weeks ago because our church is doing a message series based on it. Now I can’t get this song out of my head!
When I first started hearing this song I thought it was weird. Then I heard a cover and actually listened to the lyrics and I really liked it. Now it’s stuck in my head way too often.
