I was out running errands near lunch time today and discovered that the grocery parking lot was full of state fair food vendor trucks. A crunchy corn dog and a fresh lemonade made an delicious and unexpected lunch.

I read an article that said there was a pumpkin shortage, but I’ve seen plenty outside of stores.
Yes, my husband told me he heard this also but I've seen plenty at stores, farmstands and some local churches. We tried growing our own pumpkins one year but the rabbits ate the blossoms. :eek2:

My positive is cool & crisp weather today but the sun is up and it's perfect autumn weather so I plan on going out and enjoying it.🍁

We snagged a great deal on several large pumpkins for the front yard. 🎃 They were $2.49 each.

Where my cats are
I feel like I hear about a pumpkin shortage almost every year now. :dunno: I know they talked about it last year so I made sure I got enough canned pumpkin for my Thanksgiving and Christmas pies ahead of time. I'm seeing pumpkins everywhere too. And they were still harvesting a local field when I rode by yesterday. The orchard we were at last week had plenty. I haven't gotten any yet. I want to go to a stand on the highway that had gorgeous ones last year. Maybe we can do that tomorrow.

My positive; its finally supposed to start feeling like fall any time now! And I can see red starting to show up on my maples! :redheartpump:

Here are shots from our walk at about 7:45 this morning. It was about 40°F with blue skies and the beginnings of some glorious colors. So energizing to be outside when it’s like this!

Those pics are beyond gorgeous and the brilliant blaze of colors on the trees are magnificent. 🍁

My positive is that I had to take advantage of the beautiful fall like weather today with warmer temps and no humidity. DH and I stopped for an afternoon drink at SB and brought our library books to read. We spent almost two hours reading and basking in the sunshine. 😎

Halloween lights and decorations up. I have two doors on the front and if I don’t put up lots of lights around the door I want the kids to come to and fence off the other, I spend the whole night sticking my head out and yelling “other door!”

I had a problem at a Starbucks I went to over the weekend. It was not a SB near my house so I rarely go there. It kept bothering me so I called customer service and talked to a very nice rep. who said I would get a monetary gift added to my card. Nice positive! :thumbsup:
