I know there are a lot of people out there lamenting the fact that the summer is almost over (children are already starting school!) - but not this girl. Generally after enjoying the sunshine and several sunshine related activities for an early August weekend I am 100% ready for the Fall. It's my favorite time of year. Jeans. Boots. Rain coats. Hot coffee (although I drink that all year). Pumpkin patches. Warm apple cider. Flickering candle light. A cozy blanket. A good book. The sound of heavy rain on the roof. I love every bit of all of that.
I guess that one thing I'm not eagerly anticipating is the spiders. Thankfully we don't have a whole lot of poisonous spiders out here but we do have ones that are big (enough) and hairy (enough) to make my blood run cold. Every year I encounter one of these "wolf" spiders in my home and I'm not looking forward to what that story will be like this year.
But I guess in the grand scheme of things, the Fall season makes me happy and dealing with spiders is just worth it.
