English: Fall leaves and acorns

English: Fall leaves and acorns (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Fall is my favorite season of the year, but this time it snuck up on me. Yesterday we were in the 70’s and today it was 44 degrees when I got up. It was a little overcast and the wind was blowing. I’ve always wondered why there is no wind in the heat of summer and plenty of wind when it is cold outside.

And so today I’m wanting to plug in my little space heater. Crazy, I know, but the chill is in the air. It is time to bring out the sweaters and the afghans. It is time to snuggle and vegetate in front of the tv and perhaps drink hot chocolate. The trees will be turning and we will realize that winter is around the corner. Halloween is coming and then Thanksgiving and Christmas with perhaps some snow in between. Now the snow I can do without, but love watching it. At least this year I won’t have to worry about driving in it.

The summer heat caused me to cut my hair and now will be the time to let it grow out. No more flip-flops and shorts. Drag out the sweat pants and hats and get ready for gloves. Dig out the window scrapers and stock up on antifreeze. Time for chili and stews and comfort foods. It will be hard to crawl out from under the warm blankets in the mornings. Change is a coming…
