Not the man himself, but rather what to get him for his birthday. (Which is in August by the way, in case you didn't know.)
Every time he sees a commercial for a Barbie or Bratz product he comes shouting to me exclaiming that he wants to get Kurt one of those for his birthday. This pattern has been going on for the last 24 hours.
Perhaps this is retribution for all of the princess birthday cards Kurt's given my boys over the years?
-The crunch of the grass under your feet as you walk to school after the first frost. -Beautiful fall leaves and the smokey smell of them being burnt. (A country thing.) -Football games where you were actually cold enough to bundle up for them. Cold enough that you could watch the frozen spider webs float eerily like ghosts over the field. -Apple orchards and fresh cider. -The anticipation of the coming winter...staring out my window every night at the streetlight willing my eyes to see the first flakes of snow. -Occasionally trick-or-treating in that said snow. Or at least traipsing about town collecting candy with 2 layers of clothes underneath your costume to keep warm. -The smell of freshly baked cookies. (It's way too hot to bake right now.) -Ditto for the warm comforting soups and fresh bread. -Using the wood stove for the first time of the season.
Yeah. I know I sound like I'm whining. I do love living here down in Socal by the beach. It has it's marvelous blessings...but every Fall I find myself pining for the change that the season brings. Trees are supposed to change colors and the weather is supposed to become brist. Oak Glen can substitute once in a while, as well as trips to Big Bear...but they're not the same.
So for those of you who still live there...enjoy a day for me!
