I know I’ve fallen by the wayside with any sort of blog post lately, but, I’ve had some technical issues that left my dead in the water. Honestly, it is soooooo frustrating…….all of a sudden my computer just failed to cooperate. It was acting up…….slowing down……not loading email…….and then it just FAILED. There I was, completely helpless, stuck, and at the mercy of my IT guy. And where was my IT guy? And, who is my IT guy? Wellllll, he was away on a “business trip”, which wasn’t really a “business trip”, but more like a road trip with the “guys”. And…..the road trip was on “bikes”, the motorcycle kind. UGH!!!! 🙁 Anyhow, the “IT guy” is, of course, my husband, and, much like the story of the cobbler and his family, computer issues are simply pushed aside, only to be addressed when “time” permitted. Well, I’m back in business, so to speak and I must admit, I’ve felt rather uninspired and unmotivated lately. As I sit and read through the many different blogs that I enjoy, I see a common theme that resonates throughout, and, that seems to be a welcoming embrace of FALL. I see the images, I hear the words…….chill, crispness, brisk. Awe, so wonderful……how lovely. Oh, how I wish I could enjoy those words describing FALL. Here, in Southern California, we are held in a death grip of one heat wave after another. 🙁 🙁 90 degrees, 100 degrees, 80 degrees, back up to 90 degrees, and on and on it goes. I am just so SICK of it!!!!! I want to be able to indulge in all that is FALL, Hot Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, Cashmere Scarves, Boots, Umbrellas (that are actually used for rain protection instead of sun protection), bowls of warm chili and cornbread, snuggling in bed under warm blankets and fluffy comforters. I love FALL and it has been particularly hard to feel inspired to embrace this season because it doesn’t exist here with all our HOTTNESS!!!!
Soooooo, I’ve turned my enthusiasm for FALL and the FALL season to Pinterest. I love Pinterest and have pinned countless images that inspire. With that in mind, I thought, my goodness, I am going to take a look at my Pinterest boards for some Fall Inspiration. While I can’t control the weather, I can, sort of, live vicariously through my FALL pinnings with a focus on PRETTY PUMPKINS~~
