  1. We’re heading into Spring here Christie and I get all warm and fuzzy when we get a clear blue day and I can get out and about on my scooter – then the rain kicks in again and I’m back in my car again. I think we both need another few weeks for the weather to settle in more and to feel like we’ve changed seasons (it’s definitely a bit like life isn’t it?)

    I feel the same way. This summer was hard to enjoy with all the bad air, and I’m definitely feeling discouraged about the covid situation.
    It doesn’t help that I’ve been sick as a dog, so I feel like my time is being a bit robbed.
    I am looking forward to cooler temps, and hopefully feeling better soon, so I can enjoy the fall, and all the pumpkin yumminess completely.
    Fingers crossed.

  3. I love fall also… such as we have any change of season where I live 🙂 We were very lucky to have had a mild summer and, thank goodness, no wildfires in our area. The second half of September and early October can be among our hottest weeks, though, so who knows.

    I know what you mean about not getting that invigorating feeling of renewal. It’s almost unbelievable that we are finding ourselves with increasing Covid rates at this point. Why many people aren’t getting vaccinated with some much evidence of the benefits is a mystery to me.

    • I understand your bewilderment about the COVID vaccine, Janis. I’m right there with you. Our largest local hospital system has just announced that they are postponing all non-urgent inpatient procedures, as they just don’t have the beds or staff available. Last I heard, all the COVID patients in the hospital system were unvaccinated. It’s crazy.

  4. Fall was always my favorite month. I loved the cool brisk days with sunny skies and colorful fall leaves. I loved starting to wear the pullovers and putting throws on the couches. I’m not a fan of pumpkin, nor pumpkin spice, but some hot cocoa and an evening bonfire… yeah! Now, it is something I know will not be part of my on-going life… Florida doesn’t really do fall. It cools a bit. Right now, nights are falling into the high 70’s, versus staying in the 80’s. Still highs in the 90s most days. By November, we might see high 60s at night. LOL. So I’m rethinking seasons here…and definitely rethinking fall activities with the Covid cases up (Florida is horrible!). You are so right with the GroundHog Day reference… I certainly hoped we would have been someplace else by now and am quite angry at those who are contributing to this latest spike.

    • You’ve been through a lot of change recently, Pat. Giving up fall in the traditional sense may be a challenge. It would be for me. On the other hand, this winter I will definitely be jealous of your Florida weather! I certainly understand your anger at those who are not doing their part to control COVID. It’s hard to comprehend. I’m trying my best not to shut off compassion to people whose way of thinking or acting I cannot understand.

  5. Hi, Christie, I love your honesty, your self-awareness and your acceptance. I’m currently an Autumn-Denier. I’m not quite done with summer yet. We’ll see how this works out for me! 😀
