Well, you know fall is finally beginning to creep into consciousness when you finally give in and put on a pair of socks. I had to do so this morning, and it is a sad day when the sandals go to the back of the closet. After all, it is still officially summer and it will be till next Wednesday, the 21st… but the air is chill in the early mornings now and I am a softy when it comes to the chill… so socks it is.
That, and pulling in the outdoor furniture…. at least the hammock stand… although I still think there’s a chance for a few more hot muggy days to swing in the shade. I’m reconsidering perhaps…
I still keep the front door open during the day… but by dusk it’s closing in on 40 degrees…
Sigh. Hate to see the summer end.
Wearing fleece here in the south as well!!! So love the fall!!!
Move that hammock stand to the sun and you will be all set for a few more months!
Dear Lazy…. you are most correct! I just couldn’t bear to take in the hammock stand quite yet. And the weather report says we will have 70 degrees on Wednesday… so I shall still have a few more days to enjoy!
Fall and winter are a great reason to slow down a little…snooze by the fire after a nice hot bowl of soup…and not feel guilty about not working in the yard. Take advantage of every moment. Spring will be here before you know it.
I have my fleece on as I write…and my wool sox. I, too, am a softy when a chill hits the air. I wonder if it has to do with age? I notice the cold more than I used to…and I really love the autumn sun low in the sky as it enters deeper into the house.
age is a matter of mind… I think I’m going to buy a wool hat to wear indoors… that should warm things up! 🙂
