Welcome Fall

It seems only fitting that for our first day of Fall our weather has gone from unseasonably warm to right on season. Although it looks like a balmy +25 or more outside, it is only +13. I thought I was being smart putting myself and my little guy in our clam diggers one last time. Then we headed outside, it was an about face for jeans and long sleeves topped with a little sweatshirt!

Summer is definately my number one season, but Fall comes a close second. I love pulling out the chunky sweaters and going for walks on a sunny day and coming back with cold red cheeks. With Fall comes Thanksgiving, always a special time for our family to get together. I do love the changing leaves, but being in a new neighbourhood our trees aren't in abundace yet, so I have to go for a walk in the forest to get the feel of a colourful Fall. Then there is apple cider or hot chocolate in front of a fire. Small pleasures really, but ones that I am grateful for.

So we say so long (can you tell I am watching Blues Clues) to summer for another year, and boy it was a good one. With record breaking temperatures (my favorite) and lots of sun and fun things to do outside, I can't complain about any of it. As Fall comes in and we make the change with the clothes and the linens and pull out jackets and mittens, I only ask for one thing. A long Fall. A Fall that stretches well into November with great days and cool nights and no snow until just before Christmas when the time is right to enjoy that too.

Welcome Fall.

What are the chances in hoping for a long fall that lasts until April?

I love the Fall too. It has always been my favorite time of year. Right now in New England the leaves are starting to turn, it's becoming cool and dry, and that Fall smell is in the air. Definitely going to miss it. But starting next week, I get a bonus summer! That will be nice too. :)

I was just saying on Nancy's comments that I should read before I post -- I just wrote on exactly the same topic. And I feel just like you do - I love summer, but the arrival of Fall is welcome, too.

And can I say, I haven't heard the term "clam diggers" since high school - suddenly it's 1985 again!
