The extreme heat of this summer has stayed way too long.
I'm excited for Fall! So, over the past few weeks, I've been doing some
Fall-ish things in hopes of hurrying it along.
I bought some adorable Halloween decorations.
I'd like to find a spooky tree to decorate with these and others that I have.
And, wouldn't you know...usually I'm wondering why holiday things are out
so early...this year I'm wondering why they're so slow to show up.
I found these at Pier One (the cute characters) and Hobby Lobby (the glass balls).
When we saw New Belgium Brewery's Pumpkick beer we had to get some.
We visited their impressive brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado a few years ago.
We love trying their limited edition "Lips of Faith" series and their other seasonal brews.
My favorite, so far, was "Kick" a couple of years ago. So, when I saw this had the word
"kick" in the name, I had to try it. I'm glad I did! It's yummy!
The label says it's brewed with pumpkin and cranberry juices and spices.
Sounds weird but it works! Oh...and I had to find a football game a couple of
weeks ago to watch while I drank it. Even though it was about 110 outside, I tried
to imagine cooler temps and my favorite season, Autumn. Ahhhh!
Who knows? Maybe it worked. It finally cooled down this week and we haven't needed
to use the air conditioning for a couple of days now. It's even cool enough to have the windows open!
Wooo hooo! Yippee!
