Ah, autumn, the season where the leaves are turning colors and falling and the temperatures are slowly going from warm to chilly to freezing.
I glanced at my calendar today and realized that it is the first day of fall. I was so happy because frankly, I am a little tired of the summer heat.
This past week, it felt like summer all over again. The temperature went to almost 90 degrees and my plan to move back upstairs was ruined. One downside to moving back up, I love my privacy but mom’s going to work early anyways, so it doesn’t really matter.
Anyway, I am really looking forward for fall and winter this year for three reasons.
- I can finally move back upstairs to my proper bedroom instead of sharing the basement with all the spiders. The basement gets mighty chilly in the winter.
- All the upcoming holidays and festivities – Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Plus, my aunt’s coming in two weeks! No cousin this time which is better.
- Winter is coming and that means snow and that means, the planes will quiet down for a while, at least until next summer. I was going crazy with the noise. It sounds like a rocket lifting off all the time. Finally peace and quiet.
On the other hand, I am also dreading fall because of temperature fluctuation. It’s ridiculous. If I wear a big coat, it will be too hot but if I don’t, it will be chilly. That’s one of the reasons I like winter more than fall. On the other hand, I don’t have to worry about icy grounds during the fall. So I guess I can’t have everything.
What is your favorite season of the year? I’d love to hear from you.
