Autumn, I am waiting

Thursday, August 26, 2010
This morning, while I walked my youngest daughter to school, I noticed that there was a different feel to the air. It was cool and crisp, just like Autumn. I loved it. I am not a Summer person. As Barb says, I'm allergic. While I do like the warmth of the Sun, I don't like the scorching heat or the humid air. I don't like that it stays light for so long. I enjoy Summer most when it is dark and the stars are shining. I can light a fire, roast marshmallows and watch for shooting stars.

I feel more energetic and alive in the cooler seasons. I love Autumn and Winter and adore the warm sun of Spring after a long, cold Winter. During the Summer I could hibernate. If there was a way, you wouldn't see or hear from me all Summer long.

I am eagerly awaiting Autumn as the hot Summer ends. I will resume my walks in the woods. I will be a lot happier ( I'm grumpy when I'm hot ). Best of all, I will be more creative in the cooler months to come. Autumn, I am waiting, I will dance for joy when You are here to stay. All hail the coming of the Autumn winds!!

Are you a Summer or Autumn person?

We're peas in a pod, sis. Can't take the humidity of summer. I much prefer spring and autumn. Love the changing colors of the trees and the cooler temps. Also like my fall/winter wardrobe a whole lot more than my summer. Looking forwared to pulling out my sweater boots and scarves!

I'm with you on that one. Can't wait 'till I can wear my fall/winter clothes too!

I like fall better than summer. I enjoy the heat of summer but I am a little more comfortable in autumn weather. I greatly agree with the wardrobe thing too!! Autumn is great but that's the coolest it needs to ever be... I hate winter!

I didn't mind summer so much when I was in Arizona. For me, dry heat really does feel better. But I hate, loathe and despise humidity. :) But I like autumn pretty well. Unless it gets too chilly for me to wear shorts indoors. *g*

I wouldn't mind fall so much if it weren't the prelude for that next HORRIBLE season. Fall is pretty as long as the temperature is moderate. Anything below 60 and I'm grumpy! Summer, summer, summer is what I love. Give me 90+ with a lot of humidity thrown in and I'm one happy, frizzy-haired camper!
