Autumn is making an appearance today. Late August is pretty early for such an event, but here it is. The sky is pearly gray and the air is delightfully cool, carrying no trace of the smoke which tainted it last night. There might even be sprinkles of rain before the clouds depart. The heat will be back next week, but for now I'm enjoying this respite— despite a sudden craving for pumpkin pie, which must go unsatisfied due to lack of key ingredients.

However, the coolness makes this a night to use the oven, and Sunday will probably be an oven night as well. Baked macaroni tonight, I think, and lasagna tomorrow. Baked potatoes will have to wait until a longer cool spell arrives. And come to think of it, I do have some brownie mix, and though brownies are nowhere near as autumnal as pumpkin pie, they'll do in a pinch. Midnight brownies! By Monday I'll be so carbo-loaded that I won't care how hot it gets. I'll be comatose.
