About half of the bloggers that I read have written something or another about the onset of Fall within the last month. They have waxed on and on about the leaves changing, a nip in the air, hot cider, having to put an extra blanket on the bed...
All I have to say is, are you living in the same country as me? I. hate. Fall. That's right Beth, read it again.
We now have to rake the lawns between mowings.
There is a nip in the air. I am refusing to acknowledge it, so I shiver in bed at night now.
I hate wearing anything but flip flops, so my toes are constantly purple until about noon when it warms up.
A few weeks ago there was ice on my windshield.
I tried to ignore it when the days started getting shorter.
Then, not only was it dark when I had to wake up, it was still dark when I got to work! Pretty soon, It will also be dark when I get off. As in, I will be at work the entire daylight hours. Bite me.
Cider, yeah, its gross people.
I want to know what's so wrong with summer? Isn't that why people live in California? Blue skies, nice weather... long days, movies in the park, the beach, the lake, camping, hiking... I love it!
It doesn't help that we spent our entire summer remodeling the house... I feel like we missed it.
Winter, I can handle. I love Christmas, we go snow camping in Yosemite a few times, and I like putting up Christmas decorations. Still, I can do all those things without Fall thankyouverymuch.
Anyways, only 8 more months until Summer and I can't wait.
