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!!!
