Can you smell it???~~~~~~~ Its the smell of Starbucks at FALL time~~~~~~~~It smells like PUMPKIN, CINNAMON, CLOVES, NUTMEG, VANILLA and a touch of SWEETNESS. Well, I got a chance to get another blog in, all month long Ive been thinking of Starbucks, so I figured I would blog about it. Last year I had my one and only PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE from Starbucks. Its a good thing I dont have a Starbucks nearby.....I would be one of those people visiting everyday. The closest one to me is about 45 min. away and I really need a reason to drive that far besides getting a 3.00 year, Ill make excuses:) Last fall me and mom went to Ashland , Ky......for a reason I can not remember, but I noticed a Starbucks and had her drop me off while she ran an errand, that being said, her or my dh are not fans of SB's....its just me. The day was cool and rainy, perfect for FALL. I remember it so well, it was one of those days you want to run home and put a roast in the oven. We stopped at a home based craft/primitive store, but they were closed:( Have you been living under a rock like me and havent had a PSL from SB's? Heres the link to a blog about it coming back. Below are a few poems/quotes about AUTUMN. Hope you enjoy!

"For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad."
- Edwin Way Teale

"I love the fall. I love it because of the smells that you speak of; and also because things are dying,
things that you don't have to take care of anymore, and the grass stops growing."
- Mark Van Doren

"A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air."
- Eric Sloane

"I love fall! Fall is exciting.
It's apples and cider.
It's an airborne spider.
It's pumpkins in bins.
It's burrs on dog's chins.
It's wind blowing leaves.
It's chilly red knees.
It's nuts on the ground.
It's a crisp dry sound.
It's green leaves turning
And the smell of them burning.
It's clouds in the sky.
It's fall. That's why...
I love fall."
