Fall has finally arrived in Oklahoma. Today it has been a rainy cold day. And I am thrilled to say all of those words. I never thought it would come after the record heat and drought. Yesterday started the cool down but I was still so dang hot I almost wore short sleeves and no jacket just to enjoy the temperature. Today is a jacket day but I'm not complaining. Oh no, it could be like this for a couple more weeks and I'd be happy. Even if it is a dreary rainy day every single day. Even if my office is a freezer. I just turn on the space heater, put on my sweater and enjoy opening my blinds to look out at the rain.
I saw where Colorado got a foot of snow. I'm very thankful my meeting there was two weeks ago because I don't drive in snow. That would have been a nightmare.
And so I'll go home tonight and start planning warm foods to bake in the oven and cook on the stove. Oh how I miss you gumbo and lasagna.
