It is far too soon. I do not remember it coming so fast.
Has fall always started on Labor Day? Or is it because Starbucks decided to release that awful PSL drink early this year? (don’t hate me). Once the PSL is available, is it now fall?
Some days I dream of an eternal summer. A forever of waking up and taking the dog out in barely there layers. A constant need for the ceiling fan to lull me to sleep. The never grabbing a coat or extra layer as I’m running out the door.
Perhaps it was the summers living in Florida for “home leave” every year we came back to the States. Or that year and a half of living basically on the equator. Or my Californian birthright. Perhaps a combination of these causes me to pause and wonder if I’m ready for fall.
However while I hold on to my dream of eternal summer, I guess I can acknowledge the perks to come.
Like last weekend spent at the cabin. Due to rainy days and 66 degree temps favorite fall activities were had. That, and a lot of wine. A few flabongos may have been had as well 🙂
Perk #1 Wine filled games of Telestrations with a backdrop of constant rain…
Perk #2 Mornings spent perusing the small town boutique for new sweaters.
And yes, Perk #3, my first hot latte. Sorry, not a PSL. Again, don’t shoot me 🙂
Am I the only one dreaming of an eternal summer? What is your favorite fall activity?
