Picoblog Question – 2022 – Post #29

The Autumn Equinox arrives Thursday, September 22. How will you celebrate the change of season?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Here in Texas, our temperatures are still in the nineties, but are supposed to dip into the eighties soon. As soon as they do, I’m heading straight for the cozy comfort foods like casseroles, thick soups, and loaded oatmeal.

How about you?
