Yay For Autumn
Summer is finally over - but you'd never know around here. Yesterday, the first day of Autumn, turned out to be one of our hottest days yet this year. Summer has become that annoying house guest who was only supposed to be staying for 3 nights and now, 3 months later when you've given her a key for convenience, she has settled in and refuses to leave. It's time to change the locks!
I really love Autumn. I love the way it gets gradually cooler and cooler and I get to run and see the sun rise over misty golf greens. I love that my running feels so much easier and I stink so much less after runs. I love that I can wear my tights again and don't end up with as much chaffing. I also love that the start of Autumn heralds my impending birthday.
After my blog the other day, Iven decided that he'd make an early start on birthday shopping this year. (Traditionally he's left it till the day before. There's nothing like last minute panic to clear the mind and bring inspiration.) I've been hinting for about 2 years now that I'd like some graphics for my car. Something that is really ME. Well Iven's finally got the idea and he's contacted a graphic artist to make up some doggy paw prints for my little Suzuki Swift. And I know all of this how? He gave my email address to the graphic artist. I read the email of course - because it was in my inbox!
Autumn has also brought the start of university for Luke. All the things I was looking forward to last year have finally come to fruition. I don't have to wake him up. I don't have to race him to the Citycat. I don't have to iron a uniform. I don't have to make him lunch. This morning I was fast asleep and was woken by the front door closing. When I saw that it was 7:30, I realised that Luke had just left and I didn't have to help out in any way. I finally have my life back.

I love fall too and would not be happy with hot days when summer was supposed to be over. Today was quite a nice day here but cold weather is returning.ReplyDelete
I hope it starts feeling more like autumn soon! I know that feeling at the end of summer.ReplyDelete
I hope autumn in your neck of the woods is better than ours - a little tease and then several more weeks of hot weather!ReplyDelete
If there is one thing I know about CA is that before we know it, temperatures here will shoot up. Yep, your summer is coming here.ReplyDelete
Iven is on a gift giving roll! Very sweet. :) That must have been a surreal moment when you woke up knowing you had that time for yourself!ReplyDelete
Wow, what a big change for you with your son becoming so independent. What will you do with all that extra time? Good luck to Iven with getting a good present!ReplyDelete
It always makes me smile to read your seasons being opposite of ours...I was thinking, "Autumn, is she nuts??" :)ReplyDelete
I don't like Autumn (Fall for us). The days get shorter and shorter every day. But, I'm happy that you are happy.ReplyDelete
Yay for Autumn - that's my favorite season too - also because of my birthday (October).ReplyDelete
And wow - your life back. That's big news. I am looking forward to a small change in that direction in September when my youngest starts secondary school...
Just lol at the comment you put on my blog. Thanks for the laugh! (You were joking, right?)ReplyDelete
Beautiful colors. I love autumn too maybe because I was born in this season.ReplyDelete
