Fall Days Are The Best [For Cider]

The nice thing about gloomy autumn weather is that it’s perfect for a spooky feeling for Halloween. You never know what might be crawling around in the mist that hovers over the ground or the fog that blinds your path forward.

Plus, there’s plenty of opportunities on cold days for hot, spiked cider (isn’t it hot, spiced cider? [I prefer it with rum, but to each their own, I say {hey, it’s five o’clock somewhere}]).

The trick to have a great autumn is to enjoy the little things, like the change in the leaves. If you get bogged down by the fact that summer’s leaving and winter’s coming or sad because most days it’ll rain or just don’t really like Halloween, just remember that without autumn, we wouldn’t have Thanksgiving. And, without Thanksgiving, we wouldn’t have Black Friday. And, if we didn’t have Black Friday no one would do any Christmas shopping and then were would we be on December 25th? (Sitting in church or surrounded by family) We’d actually have to talk about something other than the new swag we got and have no new swag to keep us distracted while other people try to talk to us. What a terrible thing.

So, enjoy your autumn, walk through an apple orchard or sit through a hayride [haunted optional], get lost in a corn maze, or just sit at home sipping warm apple cider on a cold, cool, or average temperature day [to be fair, it’s just as refreshing on a hot day…if you keep the cider colder {insert rum in either instance (as long as you’re 21 and not planning on driving)}].

And, donuts go great with cider. You’re welcome!

Monday Can Be a Fun Day

Some days, we just need to create sunshine from the rain storm. Other days, we’re given rainbows. Not sure which day it is for you, but it’s Monday and that means another dose of mediocre hilarity from yours truly.

Today, I’m not sure what to write about. So, when life gets you down, do an image search for “funny”. Let’s see what we get:

Yep. I was lazy this afternoon. Meh. It’s the little things that make me laugh anyway. Like a monkey photobombing the Bones family photo.

Ah, the First Day of Halloween

Well, it’s that time of year again. There’s a chill in the air, the smell of dried leaves on the wind, and lots of rain (some people are sad because it’s raining, but for some, it’s raining because they’re sad). Football season Halloween!

The wait is over, my friend! (From Tumblr)

When spooky, scary skeletons wander the streets and all sorts of creatures mingle and meet.

That’s great, but the best part of October isn’t Oktoberfest or Pumpkin Spice everything, it’s the candy sales.

At least for me.

For some people, it’ll always be pumpkin spice lattes scary movies. And the chance to snuggle close to someone and scream right into their ear at all the jump scares.

Here’s to the beginning of a fun holiday. Hopefully, you’ll get the chance this year to see a few haunted houses, dress up, or at least go to a cider mill or pumpkin patch.

Autumn = Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice (and not nice) about the Weather

Ah, Fall, that wonderful time of the year when we wonder if it’s too soon to turn the heater on (yes, yes it is). There’s a pleasant chill in the air, a linger scent of pumpkin spice on the wind, and just enough football to sate anyone who loves the game (and hates referees).



It’s cuddle weather for some. Sweater weather for others. But, I think everyone agrees that a good blanket can save on heating bills.

It’s the time of year when people visit apple orchards, carve pumpkins, wear spooky clothes, eat candy corn [the most vegetables I eat all year], and remember what a jacket is.

We wade through long lines looking for the newest product infused with pumpkin spice.

Some of us fight for the last drop of summer. Even the weather can’t make up its mind. Thursday will have rain, Friday will have sun, Saturday will have both and it’ll be hot and humid. It’s one of the fun things about autumn in Michigan: you never know what you’re going to get. You wear a jacket in the morning, shorts in the afternoon, and carry an umbrella just in case (or because you’re a proper gentleman).

Meh. Close enough; it’s still the Midwest. (From imgur.com)

In the end, it’s up to you. But I think fall is a great time to snuggle under a blanket and scream at the TV at a bunch of people doing a thankless job {but they do earn it so well}.

Laughter: The Best Medicine…Why Though?

There are days when you just need a laugh. So, that’s what we’re going to do today. …If possible. Laughter is the best medicine they say, but they never saw what it’s the best medicine for. I mean, does it help with a cold, the flu, hepatitis L, food poisoning?

I do know, though, that laughter burns calories and we all want to lose weight… or gain weight. It depends on your specific goals.

But, really, the best part about laughter is that it’s hard to feel sad that it’s a Monday when you’re laughing.

Some days, you just need to laugh at yourself.

It’s far politer than laughing at others. Just try not to get carried away and go too far into the self-deprecating humor that it turns mean. Remember, you’re only insulting yourself. Plenty of people will do that for you, no need to help them.

The point is, make someone laugh today, even if it’s just yourself. After all, it is a survival skill to help Mondays really go by faster.

And that’s why laughter is the best medicine. It’s a cure for a case of the Mondays.
