slowly but surely you are slipping away. i can feel fall coming on strong like the guy at the bar smiling at you from down the way who you eventually give the wrong number to. the season you don't want around because that means you have to give up the last one, the one that brought you and your family so much happiness. i don't want it to end - we had so much fun exploring our area and even though i LOVE halloween, apple picking, the leaves changing colour, sweaters, pink rosy cheeks, all that fall does bring and christmas (have already started my christmas shopping) i am not ready to give up my hopes on summer just yet.
in this transition we are going to be giving up salads and grilling to make way for comfort food and braising. fresh fruit desserts are cast aside for rich spiced cakes. beer is...well lets not get carried away there! bathing suits retire for snow suits. t-shirts for sweaters, the light for the dark...you get the idea. we are going to be poised at the window's scanning the sky for the first signs of snow fall - that's what i am dreading. the snow...there is so much of it here i'm in awe.
as i sit here staring out the window to what i expect is one of the last remotely warm days preparing to soak up the sun at the park i am actually getting excited for what the fall and eventual winter will bring. i think i am now ready to say goodbye to summer and let the good times roll. thanks for listening.
