Yep. I'm still complaining about the heat. But, it's not just me. At this point, everyone in the city is really grumpy. Everywhere I go, it's the first topic of conversation - and everyone's trying to "story top" each other. (You know: "Oh, you think that's bad? Well, my house is so hot that the fridge spontaneously combusted. Seriously.")
But today's the first day of October. And, even though it's supposed to be 100+ degrees, I'm itching to start pulling out all my favorite pumpkin recipes. I mean, it has to cool down sometime, right?
