Happy October! Time to retire those swimsuits and get out the cardigans. Fall is officially here, (oh please don’t get all calendar on me). While I love the beautiful fall weather, I do hate to say goodbye to summer. As I was scraping off the frost from my windows this morning … yes, frost, I knew I had better re-think my change of weather blues and look at the bright points of the season ahead. Here’s what I came up with as I drove:
Swimsuits reveal; sweaters conceal
Shorts = shaving; long pants = who cares?
Roasting in the sun versus roasting marshmallows over the fire
The cuddle factor
Falling by the pool; Fabulous falling leaves
Cold swimming pool; hot tub
The overheated kankle factor; slender ankles
Iced Teas and Coolers; hot coffee and cocoa
Slip n slide; sledding
Cold summer salads; hot hearty soups
Fourth of July; Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines
Swimsuit snuggie; Cult-like Snuggie
This too shall pass!
So, okay, I am resigned to the fact that I can’t change the weather but I can change my outlook. I think I have succeeded, but by-gum, if I hit another deer this year You will be hearing about it. AARRGGHH!
