Could we please fully change the seasons now?

It's October, and it's 75 out. I'm ready for chilly nights, warm apple cider and fluffy sweaters. Today is warm and blustery, which, in and of itself, is a bit weird. Welcome to Global Warming and Virginia.

Halloween is around the corner. The holiday doesn't excite me like it did when I was a kid. I don't have the money or creativity to come up with costumes. The magic is gone. I have Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin.

Thanksgiving is around the corner. The family we've been dining with for years has children of their own now, and family in town. I suspect we'll be on our own, and that's ok. I have things I can make. And we never underestimate leftovers! Maybe the dog and cat will get some Turkey too.

The holiday blues start earlier and earlier every year.
