8 things I hate about Fall.

Okay.... Hate is too strong of a word.

Laila  is funny.... we were discussing my love of tomatoes and she said.... "I hate them... well I don't hate them, I just dislike them with a highly fierce expression."   That's kind of how I feel about the change in the seasons.  I get so sad when Summer and summer type weather comes to an end.  I try to stay on the sunny side of life, but there are some things about Fall I just don't like.

I don't like having to wear shoes...and socks.  I love naked feet and sandals and a way to show off my brightly painted toes.

I don't like having to bundle up.  I could live in capris and a short sleeved top my whole life.

I don't like not seeing relatives/family as often.  We get together a bunch in the summer then really not again til Thanksgiving/Christmas time.

I don't like seeing my neighbor's houses.  Leaves start falling off the trees and I remember once again that I live really close to my neighbors.  What's up with that?  They can see into my windows once again, and I can see in theirs.

I don't like having it get dark earlier and earlier.  I like having a Sunset at 8:30.

I don't like getting back into school and structure.  I like freewheeling it through my days.  If I want to paint, I paint. If I want to read, I read.  If I want to sleep...well you get the picture of what my Summer looks like.

I don't like the brisk air.  I want to walk outside and say ..."Now that's hot."    (Why I like St. George so much.)

I don't like being the bed time enforcer....or the we have to be up and moving by 7am  gal.

I do like  sweaters, pumpkins, apples and Halloween.

I do like Football games, being in school and new school supplies.

I do like  colored leaves, boots and fresh baked pie.

I do like that we have the routine of scripture reading and family night again..... ( If the second coming happens during the Summer we are in big trouble.)

Okay....maybe I don't dislike Fall with a highly fierce expression...but I just really, really love Summer more!!!

One positive here I guess is that I never have to buy boots, have wet clothes coming in the door or not see the sunshine, but yes to everything else. It's kind of weird seeing falling colored leaves around Nov. 20th or so haha.
