Fall Torture


A part of me is in complete denial that fall is really here. I have a cold. My voice is gone. It has been rainy, damp and dreary outside. I am in denial that summer has truly ended. My state of denial hasn't been helped at all by how beautiful today was. It was warm, almost hot! I walked outdoors wearing a turtleneck, a light jacket and my newly finished knit hat. I was ready. Ready for fall not the gorgeous weather before me! I felt so tricked. Here I was trying to embrace the fall that is knocking upon our doors and windows. Fall, the kid brother of big bad Winter seems to be doubled over with laughter and howling in enjoyment over our torture in the mere thought of the very scary oil bill. But here I was, completley over dressed. I stripped off my layers one by one. I blinked my eyes at the bright sunshine and croaked out a strangled laugh. I felt happily betrayed. It was so wonderful! Sunshine.

I'm ready for some of your beautiful fall weather to make it's way west to us. It is wet, windy, and very cold (34 degrees right now). I want to feel that soaking warm sun on my face one more time! (We need some good trick-or-treat weather, too)

I am definitely in your boat on this one. I love the summer and I love the fall, but I hate the inbetween. It's not fair to be hot one minute and then cold the next...it's just not right! I say, pick one or go gradual.
