Ok, so, technically, Fall (or Autumn for some of y'all) has been here since September twenty something. Yeah. Don't tell my a/c that, it'll laugh at you. I am so happy that the cooler weather is on the way!
Now don't get me wrong, I like summer. The thing is, I like summer in small doses. You know, three or four weeks of summer. And never the 90 degree sweltering summers... always the 75-80 degree summers... but only for a few weeks. Then I could skip right into fall and stay there for about 6 months (windy days, crisp air, colorful leaves) and be happy. I could take about 1-2 months of winter. Again, no extremes, just some nice fluffy snow on the weekends (so I don't have to drive in it on the weekdays) and hot chocolate in a mug while I bask in front of the fireplace. Let's see, that gets us to 8 or 9 months of the year taken us. So I guess the remaining 3-4 months could be spring. And that would be great too, since I love the spring flowers and plants a lot. Anyone know where I can go to find a place like this? :):)
I'm so excited to be able to pack up my summer clothing! I'm looking forward to wearing my Old Navy corduroys (soooo cute) and my cute little 3/4 length sleeve polos that I bought not too long ago. Not to mention my new Dr. Martens on my feets! :) No more flabby arms peeking out from my t-shirts. No more white white legs that blind all who behold them! No more sweating as soon as I walk out the door. No more painting my toenails every week. Oh wait. I'll probably still do that, but maybe not AS often. More like once every two weeks :):)
Ooooooh ooooh oooh! AND! I get to invite people over to our house (well, to our backyard) and have fires in the chiminea and sit out on the patio! Cool autumn evenings are best for that sort of thing! S'mores, here I come! I might have to get out the tent and do a campout in my backyard for the kiddo and I, since he's never been camping! WOW!! I LOVE FALL!!!
Ok, I think I've rhapsodized about fall enough. Tell me what you think? Does anyone else welcome the cooler weather? The smell of the leaves as they mature and fall off of the trees? The bright mums that everyone has this time of year? The advent of cords and long sleeve shirts? There have to be a few other Fall Fanatics (FF's???) out there!
