There’s a chill in the air, which I don’t mind at all.
And I’m wearing closed-toe shoes, which I do mind a lot.
But there’s nothing to be done about either one, they both just have to run their course.
It feels like fall is finally on its way and I can hear the distinct sounds of it at my house.
“It’s a little chilly this morning, isn’t it, Mom?”
“Don’t you think we ought to turn the heat on just for a little while?”
No, I don’t.
I’m one of those people who actually enjoys fall and the nip in the air. My son, on the other hand,is one of the those people who has a comfort zone of three degrees. 69-72 degrees and he’s just fine. Vary above or below and he’s either freezing or burning up. I can’t imagine how we ended up living in the same shared space. But we’ll muddle through like we do every year.
Fall also brings a plethora of activities in which to participate.
The Black Eye Pea Festival was last weekend and the Sweet Potato Festival is just around the corner. Several of our local football teams are still on the playoff trail and working hard to secure a spot and basketball season is almost upon us.
Then the holidays will arrive with Thanksgiving observances and open houses for Christmas.
We’ll all be busy, busy, busy but in good ways, so don’t be shy. Get in where you fit in.
Lace up those closed-toe shoes and jump into the fun of fall.
