Pumpkin Spice.

Today was a good day. I lived. Nothing extraordinary happened. I did the dishes. I drank some tea. I read a little Sherlock Holmes by A. Conan Doyle (which, by the way folks, is a great read). But now I arrive at the inspiration of this post and the highlight of my day: the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Ta-Dah! (Please observe the quality phone camera photo on the right.) Mmmm....deliciousness...the taste of autumn in a cup. I don't know if any of you noticed but the weather was threatening "Fall" today which left me no choice but to venture out for a little festive treat. I'm one of those people that tends to be very aware of "seasonal" things. At Christmas time you eat cookies and drink hot chocolate, in the Summer you eat ice cream....all the time, in the fall you eat lots of apple, cinammon, cloves and pumpkin flavored things including Pumpkin Spice Lattes. This is especially true if it is cloudy and a little rainy out. Now don't get me wrong-when I say "seasonal" I'm not talking about calendar dates of seasons. I'm referring to the general time frame/feeling. I do know it isn't technically Autumn yet, but today sure felt like it. So there was no avoiding it. I thoroughly enjoyed my beverage and I strongly encourage all of you to try one on the next autumnish day. You won't regret it.


  1. I'm with you on the seasonal stuff. And though I wasn't there to share in the joy of the first pumpkin spice latte of the season… I am happy for you. I know your heart was full today. Here's to many more days of living and hopefully many pumpkin spice latte dates. cheers!

  2. Autumnish...nice word. :) I'm not sure if I'll ever get around to trying a pumpkin spice latte...seems a little strange to me.
