Time again…..

The seasons are just flying by and the geese are saying good bye and now the stores are saying „ Christmas is just around the corner“…. OMG is all I can say!

I need time and don’t want to be rushed into Christmas, because it is still a while off and Halloween hasn’t even taken place or Thanksgiving for that fact…. But NO we need to worry about Christmas…

Is that the only thing that people or retailers can think about??? What happened to enjoying the time between seasons as they happen and not rush,rush for upcoming times/ events that haven’t even happened yet??

I want to enjoy the leaves as they change color or walk in the woods and hear the crackle of the dry leaves under my feet and not worry about Christmas is just around the corner. Then there is so much to enjoy, and the fun of decorating for Halloween with the kids knocking on your door with their cute costumes on……. But no….. Christmas is just around the corner!

Or what about Thanksgiving and getting together with friends and family to enjoy yourself and a day of togetherness…… NO…. Christmas is just around the corner!

One day in the near future I think Halloween and Thanksgiving will be written off and we will head straight for Christmas …. By this I mean first spring, summer …. Maybe fall and then Christmas, because it is right around the corner…. No more excitement like it was when I was a kid with the building-up of excitement that came when December started….. No more…. Sorry, because Christmas is just around the corner!

I don’t want Christmas just around the corner… I want Christmas in December where it belongs and not in some other month.

I hope you think so too, and enjoy yourselves now and not worry about Christmas that is in December and not in October!

Autumn Leaves

Looking out the window at all those wonderful colored leaves on the trees and seeing them slowly swaying in the wind and then just letting themselves go from the tree and sailing through the air to land softly on the ground… oh those lovely leaves of fall as you send us your greetings to tell us that colder weather is on its way.

There the trees stand no more birds in their nests just a lonely tree bare of its leaves stands there so proudly waiting for some bird to land on its branch and say hello. Not many people put real thought anymore into what happens with the change of season or notices that how lovely the trees are with their leaves a glow in the lovely colors of fall.

As a kid I remember every fall my dad hopped into the car with my mom and me and we drove off for the day just to look at the wonderful colors of the leaves on the trees… oh they were so lovely and bright, or at least they seem so in my memories. The tall majestic trees that were in the countryside and you could drive for miles just looking at all the colors that were abound and sometimes not see another car or person for hours. Those were the wonderful days of fall!

I have great memories of fall and of raking those dreaded leaves too. I always thought as a kid those leaves fell from the tree just to make me work!

My parents would say to me “Now, go outside and rake some of those leaves into piles”. That was a sentence that I hated to hear… those piles of leaves were bigger then me… We had thousands of leaves and they were only there on the ground for me to rake into piles….and then a gust of wind would come along and blow my wonderful piles of leaves away only to hear my dad say.. “Well, you have to start again”. I think the leaves on the ground were invented as a way to keep small kids out of the house so the parents could have their peace and quiet!!!

I hated those leaves and it seemed that the trees had an endless supply of leaves, because there were always leaves to be found in the yard no matter how good I raked!! I personally thought back then that the trees had gotten together in a conspiracy to shed all their leaves in our yard so I would have to rake them into piles.

Oh the fall leaves and their colors and wonderful memories they have left me with of raking them into piles… Enjoy the wonderful colored leaves that the trees are sharing with us!

Fashion for the Fashionable

I would love to be fashionable. All I read lately is about the latest fashion trends how I should dress what I should buy and which make-up I should use…. Boy is it stressful being a woman just trying to keep-up with all this stuff, and where do I start first??? Hair, clothing or make-up… I am confused and need help! Plus to top things off there is the desk stationary that I need too for my office to match my mood or what I am wearing. Could life be more complicated????

Ok, I know I don’t visit all those fashion shows; I see enough of them on TV or you can read about it somewhere, so I know I won’t be left behind in the fashion jungle… Those models out there make me feel like I look like a whale. There is no way on earth that I will ever be able to fit into one of those slinky little dresses or teeter along the street in those high heels. Who wears that stuff??? I have never in my whole life up to now ever seen anyone wearing any of those outfits whether at a party or to work. They must be somewhere out there hiding from me… But where???

Now that fall/ autumn is approaching at the speed of light, there’s the need for the new fall hair cut… But which one?? I just had a summer hair cut and that was in then and my hair doesn’t grow that fast for the next season’s hair cut.. I’ll fall into the bad hair cut group of people … Last season’s hair cut.. OUTCH !! Hairdressers please be patient with us our hair takes time to grow.

Then there’s the right color of clothes to choose from that HOPEFULLY will be in for at least a month. The color pink was mention… I love pink but is that the right color for me and will it be out again at the end of the month before I even get a chance to get used to my new look??? Buying the wrong colored clothes may end in a disaster, because I don’t know what color will be in in October… Going to the office with the wrong colored outfit on will defiantly not get me a seat on the board of directors, but instead a little note saying” this month is not a pink month!” The trials and trivia of trying to keep-up with the fashion of today. Ohje

Not just that’s a problem to make sure I am wearing the right hat on my head too that I hope won’t ruin my summer haircut… Now what color do I buy and it must match my new fall coat… do I want to stand-out in a crowd or do I want a subdued color that signifies fall ??? I need help!!!

So far I seem to be having difficulties in deciding what to wear and how I should look, but thanks to all the advice out there I know what make-up to buy. Now if it matches my skin tone that’s another story but at least I can say I bought what is in for the fall season, and another little problem arises here too. Everything is sold in tubes that contain enough make-up for a year… Now what?? I can’t wear the September colored blusher in October. Everyone will notice it right away…

And all the beauty tips they seem to change from month to month too. Which tip do I use or where to I turn to for the right beauty tip of the month?? This is all so confusing. HELP!!

My final little problem is what stationary – what seasonal color should I have on my desk and do I need a pen that has ink in it with fall colors and if I send out something on the wrong colored stationary am I doomed as not having a fashionable desk?

Please everyone be patient with me when it comes to fashion trends; I just can’t keep up with them fast enough, So if we meet on the street don’t be surprised if I am wearing a color from last month and my hair cut is from the summer and my make-up isn’t the latest color either… that’s how life really is!!!

Maple syrup goes astray

LEBEN UND GEDANKEN

Bad news for lovers of real maple syrup! I read somewhere in the world that thieves have stolen thousands of liters of maple syrup. How can anyone in their right mind do such a horrific thing so that all the maple syrup lovers of the world could possible not have enough maple syrup for their pancakes or French toast? Bring back that syrup!!!!!

This really makes me feel bad because I love maple syrup and don’t want to do without the real thing. Artificial syrup just doesn’t cut the cake and tastes terrible if you ask me. I wonder what those thieves are going to do with all that syrup. Have a giant pancake party and invite the world or are they planning on doing something else with it???

It’s a really sad day when those things happen were people steel our beloved maple syrup. Why those guys could just…
