Hopefully it was filled with good times, tasty foods/beverages, swell friends/family, and all that makes a sometimes challenging life worth it.
I arrived back to my beloved Baxter, in L.A., on Saturday evening and we began prepping for the festivities. I wasn't hosting the Labor Day grilling this year, a friend was, but I was preparing to be a great participator in the BBQ bounty. I over brought dessert.
The week is now upon us and like everyone else, the question in my head is, how is it that we are at *HalloweeSgivingMas* almost already?! It's too fast. Too fast, I sayeth.
Every year without fail I think that next year will be different. That somehow more time will be added to the calendar and I'll be able to treat each Holiday with the respect it deserves. Clearly that isn't happening, thanks for nothing imaginary calendar adjustment bureau. But still, how am I surprised? Hearing friends talk about Fall and all their Autumn plans is awesome, it's my favorite time of year, but it makes be anxious. Pumpkin Spiced Xanax Latte anyone?
It's not like I didn't see it coming. I saw it, waved to it like an old friend you see across the street on your way to the post office, and a few other errands. You want to stop and catch up, but if you don't get to drop off that bill before last pick-up it will be considered late, and then you'll also be arriving at the grocery store just as the check out lines get really long. Plus, you need to get back home before...You get the idea.
So, as I say good bye to Summer and awkwardly prepare for Fall, I am slightly less anxious about wrapping up this year than in the past. Why? I don't know. I'm just rolling with it.
Oh, and btw--some new angelo:HOME stuff is on sale at Fab for the next few days. -angelo
