I know that some down in South are still having tempts in the 100's. I know that some have had no rain and the plans and gardens are all dried out. Up here however, we have had rain - lots of rain (Remember Irene?) and now that it is officially September, well it time to talk fall!
Over the last few days, I work up to temps in the low 50's. Today I woke up to this:
And before you get all excited that it will become warm and wonderful, I looked forwarded and this is what we are expecting today:
Yeah - It's going to reach 77. Now that may seem wonderful for you but I really like the heat so here is why I feel like I'm living in a Oxymoron World. It's still summer for a full 3 weeks more. Summer - where temps should be in the high 80's or even (dare I say it high 90's!) but instead, I wake up to put on a bath robe, and slippers and wrap my hands around the hot coffee to warm them up! I should be thinking of grilled chicken over a cold summer salad for dinner instead I'm looking at my crock pot and thinking "STEW". I should be painting my toe nails and looking forwarded to wearing my flip flops, instead I'm putting them away in the back of the closet and looking for where I packed the boots! I should still be seeing lots of flowers:
Instead I'm seeing this
Leaves falling on our deck chairs
Plants storing up there food for winter and laying down
So now, I am looking forwarded to what we call here as "Indian Summer" where summer return with its warm temps and feel for one last time before the cold rain falls. It's a reminder to my heart: "Take heart LynnMarie, Summer will return, it will go away for a season, but it will return and you will appreciate it all over again."
Are you feeling the change in the air where you are?
