I have a love/hate relationship with autumn.

Ugh. Its here. Autumn that is. It may not officially be fall on the calendar, but, trust me, it has struck with a vengeance. Isn't it enough that summer didn't really get started until mid- to late June? I remember Beanie was wearing sweaters in the middle of June. Now, seemingly as soon as September got here the weather cooled down and it is dark and dreary. I wake up and it is dark. That is probably the part I hate the most. I love waking up to a bright sunny day. It makes it so much easier to get up and go.

There are parts of Autumn I love -- the changing colors of the leaves, carving pumpkins, the brisk (but sunny) days. I would miss those things should I not be able to experience them, but I sure could do without this dark dreariness.


  1. Tell me about it...we have already had two pretty big SNOWSTORMS!!! It is very cold here and the past few morning I have had to actually scrape my windshield. I hate waking up when it is dark but worse than that is not getting to see the light of day due to work. In the winter here, I go to work when it is dark then it is dark by 6 when I get home. Last year I bought light up dog collars and wear a headlamp when I do my evening cross-country ski.
    Funny, I moved here for the winters but stay because of the amazing (way too short) summers. Go figure.

  2. Well, it's not chilly here (though I wish it were sometimes!), but I hear you on the whole darkness thing. It's getting dark so early, and that really has a bad effect on my mood! Plus, it means I can no longer go running outside after Johnny gets home from work and Jack is asleep. Boo!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you.
