Fall and NWM

Well, my absolute favorite season is here – FALL! The delicious comfort food (mostly desserts), the beautiful colors outdoors, and the crisp air without it being too cold… OHH YEAH!! I am currently sitting here with a Maple Pecan Frappuccino from Starbucks. For the record, I usually get the fall flavors once or twice during the season, and then go back to my classics. Sometimes, though, I get obsessed and order it five times in a row. 😉 I am also watching some post-season baseball! My team is not in it this year, but it’s always exciting to watch no matter what. I just love baseball! Football is back, too, and what a downer that has been for our household. Our team just can’t get it together! Next week, we are going to our basketball team’s home opener! Go Kings! See? Lots of good things this time of the year.

In case you are wondering why I am posting in the middle of the day on a Monday, well… it’s an observed holiday for our company. NWM = No Work Monday! But even if it weren’t, I think they might have sent us home early today anyway. You see, I work in the Napa Valley, and what is going on over there right now? A massive fire! It has gone rapidly through other counties as well, and some of my coworkers have either evacuated or are on alert. They have also been without electricity since about two this morning. Please keep the residents, visitors, animals, and businesses who are affected in your thoughts and prayers. Last time I checked, two hospitals have already been evacuated. This really hurts me because many of my favorite people and sceneries are in that immediate area.

Other than that… I am looking forward to next week! Other than the Kings game, my nephew and his parents (my brother and sister-in-law) are coming back from their vacation in the Philippines! I miss him so much. Haha! I also get to see my optometrist for my annual check-up, and hopefully, she has good news for me.

Have a great Monday, y’all!
