I took these pictures of a few trees in our apartment complex today, as I was heading into work. I can’t decide which shade of the fall colors I like best. The yellow and fire-orange ones are tied. I’m leaning toward orange, though.
I love Fall, I really do. It is so beautiful. I love the leaves, and all things pumpkin, and all of the fall candle scents. And I like boots.
But, I just don’t like what Fall leads to… you know… it’s a slippery slope to… WINTER.
Ack! I don’t usually curse on this blog, it’s a family blog, you know.
My denial of cooler temperatures was able to continue today because it was almost 70 degrees.
I have not packed away my flip flops yet.
But soon. Soon socks will be a daily must. Soon, I will be wearing black pants every day for 4 months. Soon the Metro will be more packed because of commuters in heavy coats.
But that’s okay. At least there are Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Gingerbread Lattes. And I do love Thanksgiving and Christmas is okay.
There you have it. There’s my little Fall pep talk.
Does anyone else want to enjoy it until Christmas, then take a nap, and wake up to Cherry Blossom time in April?
Let’s do it.
