sooc sunday

this is a straight-out-of-camera shot taken a week ago, and cameras don't lie—sure looks like autumn to me! the rest of these s.o.o.c. shots are here.

i'm off to my brother's house. he e-mailed the family on august 31st {the three year mark of my dad passing} to invite us all over to make dinner and watch my dad's favorite comedies. one of the films we'll be watching is the great race {with natalie wood, tony curtis and jack lemmon}. it's such a funny movie, and it will be a joy to watch as we remember all of my dad's favorite parts. i've seen it at least a dozen times. {if you've never seen it, i recommend it!} perhaps we will also watch the bears first season game, too. can't wait—it should be a lot of fun!

we are going to make two big batches of paella. {the recipe is about five posts below this.} i hope it turns out as good as my first attempt at making it and does not disappoint.

it's a gorgeous fall-has-the-bluest-sky day here {even though it is not technically fall yet}. but the temps feel more like summer, and so they should, since there is still a week of summer left! it will be a great day for the hour drive to the city with the classical music station on.

happy sooc sunday. i'm hoping it's as beautiful of a day there as it is right here.

so good that you are all remembering your dad. the weather is summery here as well. good thing because the summer certainly lacked a few degrees of hot.

Sounds wonderful -- the memories, good food, the fall colors. I didn't think I'd be ready yet but I am! Ready for comfy sweaters and jeans, comforting warm dinners . . . Ah, enjoy!
