Autumn Chill

It’s official… I’ve turned the heating on.

There was no getting away with it today. It’s twelve (12) degrees out there. TWELVE! Just a couple of weeks ago it was 30 plus and we were still walking around in shorts and tee shirts. But now?

I have my jeans on for the first time since last winter, and yes, I’m wearing a blouse and tee combo. I haven’t quite broken out the cardigan… yet. The weather has definitely turned toward the cooler side and yes, when I looked out the window this morning after opening the curtains, there they were. Yellow and brown tinged leaves.

I think my hands flew to my face in a mock The Scream. Is there really only a week or so of September left? Which means October will be here and everyone’s going to be talking about fantasy books, their next spooky reads, halloween, and the dreaded pumpkin spiced latte (again).

I guess that means the summer is over and it’s official, autumn is here and it’s time to change out my clothes for something warmer, and start thinking about when the snow’s coming. Which, by the way, is usually mid-October in these parts.

sigh… okay, I give, where’s the pumpkin spiced latte?

    1. I can’t say I feel sorry for you luxuriating in glorious heat down there, but do understand that the seasons follow their own way where you are, in Arizona (do you actually have a change of season at all?)

      I’ll call you in the middle of winter and swap you a week up here, for a week down there, so you can enjoy the minus 30 degrees, as I enjoy warming up in the sun! πŸ˜‰

    1. I have to admit to loving autumn for those very same reasons, for me, it’s the best time of year. Sadly, here, it never lasts too long before the snow arrives and winter sets in. I’ll swap you our early snow for the English rain. πŸ˜€
