It’s Fall in case you didn’t know. I love fall, I love October. This time of year the leaves are in a perfect transition.

I’m a restless Sagittarius, what can I say?!?! So I had to stare at the squash because I couldn’t go it. I used my Jedi mind powers and manifestation prowess to keep anyone else from buying it. Finally my patience ran out and I had to have my neighbor Becky had to come sit in my chair so I could shop. See why I love a farmers market shopping experience?
