I know it's supposed to be here, but it's 94 out right now and sure doesn't feel like fall is anywhere close to being here. I can't even bring myself to change the decor in my dining room to the fall stuff or put out Halloween decorations. The kids would love to have a pumpkin but it would rot from the heat in just days.
I shouldn't complain really. I got to go for a swim last night around 8:00 pm. I love swimming at night. Julianne sat by the pool and I quizzed her on state capitals while I floated. It was a beautiful night. The moon was just amazing BUT... I do like fall.
It makes me miss living in Raleigh. It's the time of year when I start making soups instead of salads. I get to put away the tank tops and wear 3/4" sleeves and jeans now and then. I like seeing the frost on the cars the first thing in the morning ~ and hot chocolate. I miss hot chocolate. If we still lived in Raleigh we'd be headed up to Blowing Rock in the next couple of weeks to see the changing of the leaves. Stop at a roadside stand for some fresh warm cider. The kids don't remember any of this so I think maybe next year we'll have to make plans to go up there in the fall....
Although Oct/Nov are the best times to go on a cruise to the Bahamas. It's when the rates are the cheapest and the weather is great. Still plenty warm to go snorkeling but the nights on the deck are cool enough to wear a wrap. Man, am I fickle or what. Not really ~ guess I just want it all!
So, where ever you are... what ever fall is like for you ~ I hope you enjoy it.
