Here on the gulf coast of Florida, we really don't have the four seasons. I like to say we have two seasons; the brown season and the wet season. The little bit of fall we do have is usually a week or two that preceeds Thanksgiving, and then it's straight into the brown season.
I woke up this morning to a nice cold snap, and even though it warmed up to 75 degrees this afternoon, it occured to me we were in the throes of our mini-fall season. There's even a tree in front of my house that has leaves that are a tinge of red. Too bad they'll turn brown in a week or two. It's okay, though. I'll take this little bit of autumn rather than have none at all.

I think we've decided to have coffee and a little breakfast together, then maybe I'll just go shopping!
I must be going nuts, because I bought a turkey - a 10 pounder. You can't find a tiny turkey; I know, I tried. Looks like we'll be eating a lot of turkey for a while. Maybe it's really my denial of having no Thanksgiving dinner that made me do it. Crazy, huh?
