Apple orchards: This year, we are not going to try apple-picking after a freak October blizzard, though.
|Frozen apples, anyone?|
Pumpkin everything: I know I complained recently about the too-early appearance of pumpkin, but now that it's after Labor Day I am embracing it. It's one of my favorite colors/flavors/smells. Heck, I even like the texture of pumpkins, too.
Long runs: I still try to run outdoors in the summer, but when it's 97 degrees with 67% humidity--that's not happening. Crisp fall weather is the best time to run. The best day to run? The day before the NYC marathon, when they have set up the finish line in Central Park. I like to run under the banner and pretend that my 6 miles were 26.2. (Someday. . . .)

School supplies: It doesn't matter that I'm not a student; I still love to buy new pens, notebooks, and desktop organizers. I'm starting a shiny new first draft this week, so whatever gets my butt in my desk chair, right?
New books: I'm excited for BURN FOR BURN (9/18), THE DIVINERS (9/18), TEN (9/18), MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY (9/11). Also, Elizabeth Fama's MONSTROUS BEAUTY released on Tuesday. Go buy it! It was wonderful.
