So Long Summertime!

“August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.”

― Sylvia Plath

Dear Reader:

Good bye August, I say, with a fair amount of enthusiasm! Fall has always been my favorite time of the year for these reasons:

  • School began in the fall and I loved being a student. So, this is a time for me to begin reading a series of books or enrolling in a class.
  • Is there anything better than a stroll among dry, crunchy leaves in a neighborhood made colorful by the changing season?
  • Orange leaves mean it’s time to begin buying Christmas presents.
  • Pumpkin bread, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream. Enough said!

Hope you’ve all had a lovely summer and best wishes for a beautiful new season!

  1. ‘The odd uneven time’- such a perfect expression for the changing of seasons. I haven’t tried pumpkin lattes, but I have enjoyed a good many pumpkin pies over the years. They are scrumptious.

  2. I would love to visit USA in the fall. Autumn here contains nowhere near the changes in colour, or pumpkin-related festivities to enjoy. It’s a little, ‘meh’.
    However, it is now officially spring Down Under, so I couldn’t be more happy! And what a beautiful weekend we’re having.
    Have a pumpkin delicacy for me! 😊

    1. You must visit my home in the fall. The entire neighborhood is aglow!!!! Springs not bad either, though. Had dinner last night with a friend whose husband is an Ausie….just love the accent!
