discussion of the day
FALL will arrive this weekend. For the most part it feels less and less like summer to me. Even though we have had some days where the temps soared above 90 degrees - somewhere in the background it still feels like Fall.
I kinda like FALL because it is usually cool enough for me to go for walkies - while the sun is still up. In the summer, my walks tend to be just after dawn or just before DARK. Not the funnest times to walk. . . at least for Mommy they aren't. But in Fall, the moderate temps and cool breezes make daytime walks a pleasure.
I live in a very temperate zone for weather. Northern California, SF Bay Area, enjoys mild temps all year-round and the SUN is almost always shining down on us. We have rain, but not generally for long periods of time and NOTHING compared to some places. You know what I mean, those of you who are living in other parts of the country/world.
This is not to say we do not have seasons. We have Winter when it is gray (sky and hills); Spring when it is green everywhere; Summer when the grasses in the hills become golden; and Fall when the hills become gray again and the trees lose their leaves. And a lot of the trees provide bursts of color before they lose their leaves.
Yes, I am looking forward to FALL and all of the smells, sounds (HOCKEY IS BACK), and fun stuff to do.
