As the vibrant greens of summer begin to fade, making way for the brilliant reds, golds, and oranges of autumn, my yearly countdown to October 1st is coming to another end. Gone are the hot and miserably humid days that make me feel like someone hit the slow-motion button on a remote control.
No more hugging air conditioners for me. Nope. It’s time to break out the bread machine, candles, sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fleece blankets. Oh yeah. And books. Lots and lots of books.
Because it’s finally here!
Welcome back, my old friend, Autumn. Sayonara, Summer. Don’t let the door hit you on your way out.
For those who hold fond memories of my least favorite season, this song is for you. The last verse is for me. It turned colder… Thank you, God. 🙂
(Psst! Shameless plug alert. If you like stories that take place partly in the fall, A Hero For Holly is a great choice!)
