they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

yearning for fall.

i'm sitting on the screened-in enjoying the 70-degree weather and debating whether or not to make oven fries tonight. oven fries or left-over quinoa salad. that i put way too much vegetable broth in this time so it's sorta soupy and sorta gross. although, b likes it.

he said he likes it better soupy.

he's cute.

i'm also sipping sauvignon blanc. i get a 10 percent discount at cellar rat now because of my new job, so that's been pretty great.

what's also good to know is that spin (the pizza place) sells one of my favorite wines by the bottle for only $3 over retail. that's pretty good. you know, for when you want a bottle of wine with your pizza. which is every time i go.

so this weather today is amazing. i wore a cardigan to the office because it's always cold in the office and i got to keep it on all day - even when i walked to my car. outside. in the same neighborhood that, mere days ago, had a heat index of 110.

tomorrow it will be hot again.

but today, today is reminding me of fall.
and i'm anticipating scarves and boots and warm apple cider. soup and casserole and cozy pajamas in front of the fireplace. toasting marshmallows that i may or may not make by hand and stacking them onto graham crackers that i swear i'll make from scratch. all squishing a perfectly melted chocolate bar. and maybe, just maybe, sprinkled with a pinch of sea salt.

because that is how i roll.

    Remember when I made homemade marshmallows and got sallamanela, or however you spell that....that sucked.
