PUMPKINS!!!!!!

OK, I'm totally shocked as of today! I was shopping in Michael's when I turned a corner and saw an entire display of PUMPKINS in all shapes, sizes and colors! I immediately called my daughter to tell her about the display, and she said that the Hallmark store where she works will put their Halloween things on display in two weeks! It's the end of June for heaven's sake! ! ! I continued down the "pumpkin" aisle and saw orange, gold, red, and brown mums and other Fall flowers. I also saw bats, ghosts, ravens, and other things for Halloween and the Fall harvest. Maybe it's because I live in the Arizona desert and it is 500 degrees outside today.....perhaps I feel like the whole pumpkin display is a dangling carrot so to speak reminding me that there is cooler weather at the end of our hot, miserable tunnel of a summer. That is if we survive the summer!
Oh, I forgot to mention the arch of Christmas wreath garland that I passed under on my way down another aisle...............Enough already!
Is it just me???????????????

Hi! I'm glad you found my blog, too. It's always fun to meet new people and make new friends. I've noticed the fall decorations, too, and I'm not ready for them yet. Your blog is very cute so I'm adding you to my favs.
Blessings,
Patricia :o)

PS: I'll check to see if I have any bird runners. There's one on my eBay site, but I'll look to see if I have anything else. Thanks for asking.
