Girls Write Out
Sunday, August 29, 2010

It's that time of year again. The school supplies are bought, kids are off to school (ah, blessed peace), and night is falling earlier. Every year this time, it starts. That yearning for fall.

I'm not sure if it's the bouquets of sharpened pencils (Know which movie that line hails from?) or college football previews, but something this time of year starts that hankering.

I'm dreaming of crunchy autumn leaves, the smell of bon fires, and the feel of cozy sweaters--never mind it will hit 90 today. Everyone has their favorite season, and for me, it's always been fall. I start eyeing the right side of my closet in the morning, the side filled with sweaters and jeans and cuddly cardigans. Then I check the weather and know I'm kidding myself. Capris and sleeveless it is.

But someday soon, I'll waken to a crisp in the air, a light mist over our wooded property, a slight yellow tinge on the leaves and I'll know. My favorite season has arrived.

Though, if your property is like ours, some of our trees are already dropping their leaves. I like going out (even if it's in my bare feet) and walking through them to hear that crinkle-crunch.

Not me! I'm not happy with any of the seasons (I guess I'm rather hard to please). I don't like winter because of the super cold and ice. Snow makes everything look pretty...for a day or so. Then it becomes an ugly gray.

Summer is waaaaay too hot, especially this summer. And humid? Oy vey! Humidity is the worst thing EVER for my arthritis so I'm in uber pain every summer.

I don't care for spring because it is the precursor to summer and I'm not thrilled with fall because it is the harbinger of winter.

Am I in trouble, or what??

I LOVE fall.

The movie is YOU'VE GOT MAIL, right? :)

My two favorite seasons are late Spring and early Fall. It is hard to truly appreciate Fall knowing that Winter is hard on its heels.

I confess I try and block out that winter is right around the corner.

And yes, Pam, You've Got Mail. Sending a virtual trophy your way. ;-)

We haven't had much a summer in the Pacific Northwest, so the coming of fall finally means we can dress appropriately without feeling silly for wearing sweaters and sweatshirts in August!

Please stop wishing away my favorite season. I am in mourning at the end of summer! The end of beach days, pool days and days at the amusement parks makes me sad. I will miss my lazy days with my kids! I dropped my son off at college in Vermont yesterday and am missing him already. Now I am trying to squeeze the last drops of summer into this week but I feel Fall nipping at my heels-back you beast!

I love this time of year too but I hate what follows! LOL

Our favorite movie--"You've Got Mail"!!! LOL!

I'm with you, D--fall is my absolute, all-time favorite season of the year!!!! It's the only time of the year I love to cook/bake. :-) And it will be so much easier to wear my wig when there is a slight nip in the air!

I'm ready for bonfires, blankets and warm, fresh donuts and hot chocolate at the football games, a colorful display of God's creation. Ahhhhh, what a lovely way to start my day. Thank you!
