September twentieth.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Arizona is cooling off! I tell you what, today it was only like 98!
Ninety-freaking' eight!
I was really excited, so we took to the front porch.

While on the front porch, Donald the mailman delivered!
I got about 3 magazines today, so I offered him our homemade mango-strawberry Popsicles. He ate one, commented on loving "exotic fruits" and then we chatted about the weather and Donald's encounters with mean fierce dogs.


did you know that October is my very favorite month?
Did you also know that Halloween is my very favorite holiday?
So you can imagine how excited I was to receive my magazines with pumpkins on them, except for one thing. I couldn't believe my eyes, Jane in a swimming suit and Halloween magazines? It was just not right, not right at all.
I should be curled up on the couch in my thick sweater drinking hot chocolate.
Then I wiped Mr. Nicholas' nose again for the 100,000 bajillionth time and thought about how I was going to decorate my house for Halloween.

Then Claire's bus pulled up to the house.
I love this time of day.
I love having my children all around me.
Even if it is hot outside.
