Enough of that, though. It's time to get back to this business of writing boring old updates of my life and commentary on the mundane world around me. ;)
This morning, when I woke up, I blearily looked at the temperature gauge that projects onto our bedroom ceiling. I had to look twice and then three times because I could not believe my eyes!
This morning, at 6:35AM, it was 66.7 degrees outside! There's been a cooler breeze blowing for the past several days and this morning, the thermometer reflected the shift.
Smell that? Feel that? It's that first crisp morning in months and months. It is the predecessor of fall and I'm in heaven!
Don't get me wrong, I love summer. I love it! It is beaches and vacations and a more casual and laid back atmosphere. It is ice cream and sno cones and swimming pools. It is shorts and innocence. I love it. And summer is no where close to being over. We have weeks of 90 degree days ahead of us to close out one of the hottest summers on record.
But! Last night I pulled out my Autumn Harvest cookbook. This morning's low temperature has me excited at the prospect of all sorts of fun things to come.
In my world, the onset of fall means...
- Tee ball
- Cute clothes
- Mild weather
- Boy Pop's birthday
- Holiday preparations
- More grilling
- Banana bread
And so much more! The weather's changing and I'm feeling more feisty than ever before!
