JUST A THOUGHT: Okay, people....just hold on fer a second...!

I seldom rant online, 'cause I do it plenty in Real Life. Just ask my kid's, who have begun to think of me as doddering instead of simply eccentric.

Really my soul mellows with  the glow of LED lights in pumpkins,

(I actually miss the scent of candle-burnt pumpkin flesh) and witches swinging on brooms in the finally FALL cool, very cool Chicagoland the first lightest touch of frost-baring the grasses skeletal remains.

 We have the crisp winds now, but the mellow sunsets are something that only happens in real FALL.

Our tree hasn't even turned yet....this is an old picture.

I suppose, next week there will be thirty Christmas House walks posted-----and a meagre few Thanksgiving halls, mantels, table-settings squished in, REALLY!

I personally can't find my kitchen table for all the Hallweeny projecting, I finally worked on this week. Table top soon to be filled with turkeys, in two weeks or so.

When I retired from mass/merchandising, I gave up working on displaying Christmas in July with a 15-foot (wthorror) tree, to what I thought were nice family-paced holidays.

But YOU (you know who you are)---Ladies and Gents of Blogland are forever pushing the calendar up my..., to quote Eliza Doolittle, my "Bloomin' arse!"

Seriously, why can't we just take a breath, mellow, and enjoy the few days left of Fall---the leaves still on the trees haven't turned yet-

--How about long enough for me to find my Fall bins I didn't find for this season? Or, to add the few improvisational bits of Fall decor I did come up with.

Can't we---collectively not SUPER_PUSH the Season's and give Veteran's Day,
Thanksgiving, etc., their due.

Just a little time, because I know it will be a chore to find that one and only Thanksgiving bin I have hidden in the labyrinth of the basement storage.

I need time to catch my breath, savor the last bits of sunshine, have some tea on the porch.

Besides, we need to lose that five pounds we gained from eating the Halloween Candy, before we start in on all the pumpkin pie and holiday goodies, and.....


Bless you all, Sandi
