I have been fighting fall, digging my heels deep in summer.
Today –the beginning of fall— other blogs are full of cute clothes, warm drinks, woods with colorful trees, etc.
B would write this post all about how fall is her favorite and probably tell you all about her favorite sweater and latte drinking on weekends and the great crisp air and all that.
But me… I am really not feeling fall this year.
I have to say, I do LIKE fall. Just not right now. Summer just slipped too quickly, too chilly in the NW. I just wanted a little more time. Time for me to get in a few more nights on the patio and trips around Greenlake on my rollerblades. Time for our tomatoes to ripen.
In general, I don’t really like change. Once it has happened, I am fine… I just don’t like it while it is happening.
I drove to work this morning and could not help but notice trees with hints of reds and yellows. I was in a panic.
As luck would have it… although today is officially the first day of fall…. we are supposed to have a 70-and-sunny weekend coming up. Hopefully the weatherman is right this time….
So it looks like I might win.
But I am going to then submit to fall next Monday. I will be ready then. Promise.
It probably will help that my October is filled with fun. New Orleans (where I will bring shorts yippee!) and the Jr High Fall Retreat (where I will bring wool socks and play board games and really tell myself that fall is REALLY here).
So, here is to fall, like it or not.
And falling into sweaters and lattes and fires and new tv shows and craft projects and football [that was a nail biting Saints game on Monday!!] and roasting vegetables and colorful falling leaves.
Oh, and my it’s fall picture.
