I love this time of year. September through December. These four months feel so good. We finally got out of the tedious hell that is "summer temperatures." I stepped outside of work today for a few minutes and the sun was warm but the breeze was cool, and it brought back so many good feelings. It was the same feeling as standing outside of swim practice waiting for mom to pick me up... walking across the grassy knolls where we'd eat lunch... watching the kids swing tetherballs and walk around in their P.E. clothes.
And it's only going to get colder, and I can start wearing scarves and mittens and knit hats. Small pleasures in life, but they give this whole season a special feeling. It's like Christmas come early. And by the time Christmas comes around, it doesn't feel like Christmas anymore. So everyone wish me a merry Christmas!
