Andria and I were talking the other day and we both came to the same conclusion: we had a long, cold spring and now it’s summer. We’re getting temps in the high 70s and mid 80s, and next week, high 80s. And both of us are already ready for autumn.
I’m not sure what it is this year, but I’d happily skip summer and decorate for autumn tomorrow. I’m not a summer person anyway, but this year, it just feels…out of step to me. I was surprised to hear Andria say much the same. I think that autumn feels comforting and cushioning to me, unlike summer which always feels harsh and too bright.
Anyway yeah, I’m dreaming of the brilliant colors of autumn, and of the cool smell of petrichor–that earthy scent of water on the soil on a cool misty morning.
What about you? Are you happy it’s summer? What are you up to? Or are you ready for the autumn like I am?
