Diet Coke & Fall foliage

Humid as all get out here & overcast to boot. Pray for rain. We need it. Son #1 got a note about an open house at Norwich (college in VT) in October- thus causing his mother to fantasize about fall foliage trips to New England under the guise of spending the weekend following Son around campus. Cool weather. Breezes. Pumpkins. Apple cider. Hay rides. Lack of humidity. Temperatures under 75. A girl can hope.

Not alot else happening around Bookwomom Central. Had an appointment this morning way up the road. Dragged everyone out of bed & braved a.m. rush traffic to get there. Only to find out the person I was to meet was ill & couldn't make it. Did anyone bother to call me & cancel? NO. GRRRRRRRR

What else? Suddenly not liking diet Coke anymore. Tastes yucky. I think someone transplanted my taste buds in the middle of the night. I've been a dedicated DC fan for many years now. I guess it's for the better in the long run. I'll be healthier. Maybe. Less artificial sweetener is always a good thing. Better hydrated definitely. More book $$? A girl can never have too many books.

Okay, no more talking about Fall!! Between you and my hubby I'm starting to get antsy. I love summer so my birthday has always been bittersweet because my birthday is on the 25th. Presents - yeah! Cold weather - Boo!

I'm still on the straight sugar Coke *sigh*. If only it didn't have any calories :(

Vermont in the Fall, does life get any better than that?

I don't really like soda that much diet soda has an after taste and regular soda tastes like syrup.

Amanda--we went to Strasburg (http://strasburgrailroad.com/)

Lancaster County in October sounds heavenly and not a bad idea for the Columbus Day weekend--I'll be point this out to the hubby. We promised to bring Junior back.

Tara- Tx for the info!

Alibug- there's a great video on youtube with diet coke & mentos! Great stuff. Fortunately I'm not a big Mentos fan.
