Monday Musing

It is now officially Autumn. My favorite time of year. The vibrant flowers and green tree leaves of Summer give way to the Asters, Chrysanthemums, bellflowers and red, orange, yellow, green, brown leaves of Fall. The temperature drops from the highs of 80-90 degrees to the mid ranges of 50-68 degrees.

No more daylight savings time. Shorter days, longer nights. This is sweater weather. The time of year fallen leaves crunch underfoot. Brisk air with a slight cold bite. Birds fly south. Squirrels gather food for winter hibernation. Hot chocolate or cider to warm your insides after experiencing outside seasonal changes. Oak logs burn in fireplaces.

Football season starts this time of year as well. A time for school and professional team rivalries. Winning bragging rights. Tailgate parties at home or school/team parks--customized RVs, t-shirts, loud music, hats, and food.

What do you like about Autumn?
