I Miss Autumn
Here it is October and I am checking out everybody's blogs and facebook pages and everybody is celebrating autumn. The leaves are turning in most of the country and here I sit with my air conditioner still on. I was able to open the house over the weekend and air it out for a while, but it got too hot and had to put the air on again. I know, I know, quit whining. But, I miss autumn. Yes, once upon a time, I lived in Kentucky where they actually have autumn. And I must admit it was glorious. I miss the spectacular show of leaves and a bonfire on a cold night. Here, we have bonfires for different a reason, to keep the mosquitoes away. I love living in Florida, at least most of the year. The weather and the landscape really are gorgeous, but you never get the great colors of turning leaves.
