I noticed that many people were blogging about the first day of Fall yesterday, and they seemed really excited about it.  Not me!!  Although I must admit that the colours are beautiful, and I love to capture them with my camera, all I can think about is the fact that it’s too cold to sit out on my deck and read now, and soon my nerves will be frazzled from driving in the s*@#.  You see, I can’t even say it out loud!!

So, while trying to figure out what I could post to convey my feelings about the changing seasons, I found this picture of a maple leaf that in my mind is obviously resisting the change just like I am :).

  1. I don’t know if it was growing up in Africa or just my dirty mind but I read shit not snow. Yes I know it’s the middle of the night but someone had to clean up the Monkeys vomit and now I’m relegated to the sofa(couch) bed in the living room with him a bucket and cartoons to keep us company.

    Nine months away from other kids and nary a sniffle, he’s been back in the disease factory a week and already he’s had a cold and now a tummy bug. I don’t know if I feel more sorry for him or me.

  2. It’s raining quite a bit in Miami. Still hot and humid. I long for some cool days, but not cold ones.
    Like the maple leaf, at some point we are all resistant to change. 🙂

    What a perfect picture for your thoughts about autumn! You can always come down to VA for a visit…it’s warmer longer here. 🙂

    Seriously get a warm sweater, a beanie, and long underwear. you can still sit outside and read. Of course you may need a waterproof book when all the snow starts flying.

    Ohh wow I love that, it’s such a great picture for reflecting change, great find, Cindy! I too am very sad about the end of summer, I love it so and am not quite ready to break out the warm jumpers quite yet. It’s so much easier to think positively when the sun is shining too, it’s the best medicine. 😀

    • Thanks Becky :). I was pretty sure you would like this post because I know you are a sun worshiper just like me. I will miss the feeling of the sun’s warmth soaking into my skin and the smile it brings to my face. Oh well, I will just have to go into hibernation until next spring. And while in hibernation I will stay snuggled on my couch under a blanket reading all my books!!

    I thought this, and it’s link to music, might cheer you up. Best of Luck.

    • Ohhhh, how I love that song! Thank you :). I think you had a good influence on our weather with that because it was sunny and beautiful today, and I was actually able to sit out on my deck and read after work. I know it won’t last, but I really enjoyed it!!
