florida fall

October has crept in with just a whispered hint of that glorious Fall air. Forecasted, yes... but still unexpected. I have learned not to hang my Fall hopes on October... because it could go either way. The Florida Fall doesn't quite know how to behave. A continuation of scorching summer? Or a chill in the air that nips at your nose? Somewhere in the middle might be nice, but it seems that October only knows extremes. So I wait... for the days to lean towards November, where Fall is more certain. But my groceries? They are heralding the arrival...

I love all the fall treats - one of the best parts about the changing seasons! It is just starting to get crisp here in southern California (meaning it was 68 degrees this morning when I got in my car to go to work, instead of 80) and it's a little blustery. Love it!

I'm SO right there with you! I LOVE fall and wish it was a little more pronounced here in sunny Florida! Ahhh...but someday I'll live where the seasons really show themselves...God willing! Until then, I make due with any and every fall thing I can snap up and spread around my house. Hopefully soon my poor little blog will catch up with my thoughts, and I'll be able to wax poetically about the virtues of fall. Until then I'll just enjoy reading your posts (and look...I even got a comment in this time!! ;-) Glad to know I'm not the only seasonally crazy one around here...did you just smile all day when you felt the slightest change in the weather?!?!
