Just Peachy!

Dear September,
How is it that you are able to sit there on the calendar so humble and unassuming? Does December, in all her arrogance, pretend to look down on you? I'm sure that July won't have anything to do with you, being so independent all the time. (And yes, November, we see how grateful you are when your turn finally rolls around. No need to wear it on your sleeve like that.) It's no surprise that February loves you no matter what you do, but what about the others? Do they realize just how fabulous you are? Do they try to befriend you, hoping it will make them more likable? Or do they leave you out, gossiping with each other to make themselves feel better? Whatever the case may be, PLEASE don't change a thing!! Where should I begin? The weather? Perfect! The colors in the canyons? Stunning! The kids back in school? A small slice of heaven! Football season? Archery season? Well, a happy man IS a happy home! And then there are the peaches. Forgive me if I get a little bit emotional, but really? All of that AND peaches?? You're beyond amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you, September!!
An adoring fan.

This was so clever. I smiled through out and drooled a little at the thought of ooey gooey delish peach pie. To die for!!!

I love November as well. In Tucson the weather starts to drift below 100 degrees. It makes me happy when I don't sweat though my tops within an hour... :)

Why am I not surprised that a homemade peach pie sits in your kitchen? I hope Doug doesn't see this post! I got 25 lbs of peaches and made my first ever batch of real jam (not the freezer variety) only to have to re-boil it because it didn't set. Ugh! I think I will just go back to admiring your kitchen skills from afar. :)
