It is possible that I am one of perhaps a handful of people in the DC Metro area who are LOVING this weather! Oh, I wish it would stick around for a while. Like say, till March. Let’s just skip the dreadful winter with all of it’s crazy blizzards and horrible colds. Let’s just have Fall this year, for months and months and months. Let’s have wonderful sweaters, scarves and boots. Let’s have pumpkin spice lattes. Let’s have warm colors and walks on the falling leaves followed by hot chocolate (with Bailey’s for mama s’il vous plait!) Let’s have one good rainy day a week followed by crisp cool weather perfect for afternoon football games in the park and making cookies!
This is only fair since last winter was gawdawful and then we had no spring. Freezing snow. Boiling hot humidity. That’s how it went round these parts.
This week, for me, has been divine. It’s just the right amount of falling rain followed by an hour or two of breakthrough sun. It’s jeans, boots and sweater weather. Perfect for going back to school…or school for the first time!
Everyone is complaining about the rain, but I am as happy as Catsby all curled up right next to the window, his purr keeping time with the rainfall.
What’s your favorite thing about Fall?
