Where is Autumn?
Well, I have given up waiting on autumn to arrive and have decided to move on without it. Maybe if I just go ahead and start wearing my fall and winter clothes someone will get the hint and it will become cool, even cold. Fall and winter are my favorite times of the year, having three big holidays, wearing all of your snuggly warm clothes, seeing all of the trees change to beautiful oranges and browns…well at least you see it in the pictures. Here the leaves just fall off the trees and turn one dull shade of brown. I really enjoy it though, especially all of the decorations! All the millionaires around here have already had their landscapers put out tons of pumpkins and scarecrows, and other seasonal decorations in their yards, it looks great, so very festive. Oh, and this is the only time of year that the degree that we set our air conditioner at matches the actual temperature of the house, which is great. In the spring and summer we usually keep the temperature set at like 65 degrees, but in the heat of the day our 80 year old home only gets down to like 80 degrees…so you can imagine how excited we are about cooler weather. And lastly why I love fall is because it means that Christmas is on its way. You see I love to decorate for holidays, but I refuse to decorate for any holiday other than Christmas, it simply would cost too much money and I don’t think I want to be old enough yet to get into all those decorating holidays. So I get all kinds of stoked for Christmas to come and put out the great Christmas stuff I have, at least I think it is great, John is a bit of a scrooge about Christmas decorations. So, come on Fall, I am ready…how about you?
