October, Ugh

So it's October, and I am not happy about it. This is the beginning of the end.  I have said before that I am a warm weather bird, and I mean it ... I find myself wishing I could head south for the winter.  Summer has been over for 5 minutes, and I am already missing:

  • the weather ... I will settle for hot & humid over cold & windy any day
  • sunlight ... the days are already substantially shorter than they were weeks ago, gross
  • maintaing a tan, see above
  • the beach, see above
  • reading at the beach
  • grilling
  • baseball season
  • spending lots of time outside
  • pleasant bike riding weather
  • not bundling up before going outside ... not that we are quite there yet, but we will be soon enough
  • summer music, you know what I am saying, some tunes just sound better during the summer
  • happy trees, happy plants, flowers

... so maybe I am being a Debbie Downer about this whole autumn thing ... but you know, nothing compliments a bad mood and self pity quite like a dull brisk day.

  1. Couldn't agree with you more. I hate anything less than 70 degrees. As soon as the cold weather starts, I start to dull. I like those days when you step outside and feel better -- because it's nice outside. Summer always feels too short. So I join you as a fellow Debbie Downer about autumn.
