I read in the newspaper today that this has been the coldest summer for many years and it did not surprise me. Any pretence of summer has faded into grey and breezy days with the promise of autumn ion the air. The trees are starting to turn orange already. Sigh. Autumn means back to school time. Everywhere I look are deals for stationery and school uniforms. I remember those days well – you’d arrive back after the summer and all the boys would have grown by like two foot and everyone seemed much older. I used to wish those school days away but now I wish I could back – school was far better than work!
I’m reminded by these lines from one of my favorite films You’ve Got Mail:
I love New York in the fall. It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of sharpened pencils if I knew your address
It really felt like autumn on Sunday when I went shopping and got my first pair of boots of the year. I knew I had to buy them when I saw them as they all sell out and I have to admit I do prefer autumn outfits – I more of a boots person than flip flops for sure and my pretty impressive collection of scarves can come out of the wardrobe.
My only disappointment in seeing the turn of the season is thinking how quickly this year is flying by and that Christmas is fast approaching eek!
What do you like best about autumn?
