What is going on with this weather? Really. I mean, it is now OCTOBER!! Can I have an occasional cool breeze or something?
I am so ready for it to feel like Fall.
I want to wear sweaters.
I want to NOT have the play the Chipmunk version of Party Rock Anthem so that my students will dance raise the temperature the requisite one more degree needed for the A/C to kick on.
I want to run through leaves that crunch under my feet.
I want to drink spiced apple cider.
I want to wake up to Fog and Mist.
I want to wear my new BOOTS!!
I want to smell the wonderful fragrance of fireplaces in the brisk evening air.
I want to eat a marshmallow toasted on Autumn bonfire.
I want to make soup and apple crisp.
My goodness, am I whiny tonight or what? Chalk it up to the lovely cold I am nursing. Having a cold in the heat is kind of cruddy, in case you were wondering.
And I want to write something good. My well has been fairly dry as of late--second guessing every word I put down on the page. Is this good enough? Does it reek of trying too hard? And the minutes that I am able to scrap together are choppy at best, as are the words that fill them. I have convinced myself that if it only really felt like Fall, everything would be better. Better food. Better smells. Better writing.
So bring on the Fall!
Favorite signs of Fall, anyone?
