This time of year

I love this time of the year, the afternoons are warm but not hot and the evenings are starting to get cold.  You need the windows open during the day, and might think about throwing on a jacket when you go for a walk at night or close the windows halfway before going to sleep.

The leaves are starting to change color and mushrooms are growing in rings on the lawn.  Mother Nature is starting to get ready to go to sleep and things are sort of dying, why am I so content with this time of year?  Is it the colors, is it the new beginning for the kids in school?  Is it just the fact that I really hate being hot and I have finally gotten some relief?

Probably a little of all three.  You’d think I’d be super depressed because baseball season is coming to a close, and I’m actually glad this year, the Sox are SUCKIN!

Don’t know, and maybe I don’t need to know.  I just know this time of year makes me happy, and I like going outside and doing things outside about now.  Need to find a corn maze this weekend and maybe get a pumpkin – too early?

Why do you like/dislike this time of year and when is your favorite time of year?
