Until next week ... kisses
Baby, it’s cold outside. I don’t know what to expect next, but I hope it’s not a blizzard.
After all of the Halloween excitement, it’s soothing to see how easy November slips in. Yet, November, which begins with All Soul’s Day and continues with a special occasion each week, is one of the busiest months of the year. There’s Election Day, Veteran’s Day and the biggest holiday of the year, Thanksgiving.
But I miss you most of all, my darling, when autumn leaves start to fall.
OK, so we almost have it right: bright sunny days, little to no rain, not too hot, not too cold. But it doesn’t smell like fall. Or is it just the poor air quality of the city that prevents us from smelling anything but pollution?
Was I the one who said I was ready for cooler temperatures, waiting for the leaves to fall and wondering, “In the fall will you fall for me?” Well, turn up the heat—it’s freezing.
So far so good, as October is now in full swing. Although I haven’t smelled fall in the air yet, I do expect the leaves to turn from green to orange, red and yellow.
Have you picked your apples, gone to see the fall foliage or done any of the other things people do once fall sets in? Of course, there are those who prepare ahead of time and pack the summer clothes away and bring out the sweaters and long-sleeved clothing, but it is also a great time to get outdoors.
As much as I love September, I am nonetheless eagerly awaiting October. I can’t wait to smell fall in the air and have the temperature drop just a bit to the low 70s.
Happy days are here again! The children have gone back to school!
Do you remember when it was last September? I do, and my how time flies! Time’s going so fast, or is it me who stops to start and lets the moments past?
