Each year about this time, I want it to be fall. I want to pull out my leaf garland and my pumpkins and have it be fall. I know that it is still summer. It is still hot and humid out, but, there is always just a hint of fall in the air around this time.
Moving to a new place, I am really aware of that certain something in the air. Some of our leaves are turning yellow. This may be normal for the bushes, I really don’t know. I have to say, though, those yellow leaves are only adding to my anticipation of fall.
It’s fun to be in a new home this year. Seeing the differences each day that either I hadn’t noticed, or that something has changed. The pool is still beckoning me to jump in and swim, but, something in my thought process has changed. I can’t wait to see the leaves change colors, to see them fall, and even have it cool enough to rake them.
But, for now, I will sit and wait,listening to the cicadas and knowing the season will soon be here and before I know it, I will be putting Christmas decorations away and looking forward to spring flowers. There is a big kid inside me. The kid that is always looking forward to the next thing. That kid needs to have a time out to stop and notice the beauty and the things in front of her now.
Thanks for stopping by. DAF

I’d be looking forward to Autumn too if we’d had a summer. But here we are in the middle of August and I’m still hoping for summer to appear.
yeh, that happens, doesn’t it? Having never spent a fall or winter here, I may regret wishing the summer away!
I’m right there with you, friend. I can’t wait for fall and all the beautiful foliage and winter decorating!
Not to mention the end of hot, hot days…
