Stop talking about autumn!
Lets not talk about it. That has been my defacto perspective on the reality that it is nearly autumn. But friends are starting to mention things on facebook, blogs and in conversation. it seems that everyone who lives anywhere in North America other than Seatttle is okay with the autumn arriving.
I just find it depressing.
WE have finally had a week where temps were in the 80's and it was sunny. We got FINALLY got some ripe tomatoes. Some swimming in Lake Washington, some nights sleeping under a sheet instead of a duvet. But, it seems that by the end of this week we will be back in the 60's. It is coming whether I like it or not huh?
It seems like time slips by whether I like it or not.
The only hope I have been putting into fall this year then is that I have been planting some fall/winter veggies. Brussels sprouts, beets, (our kale is still having a heyday), more broccoli, arugula, spinach...that kind of stuff. I am also hoping to plant onions or leeks and garlic. We'll see.
I suppose that the other hope is that as a new school year begins I am not starting of with a new group of people I have to get to know. My second year at a job is a really exciting thing!
What are you doing to prepare yourself for autumn?
Are you excited for it?
