Fall is Falling

I've never really disliked fall, but it's never really been my favorite season. So imagine my surprise to find myself actually looking forward to this new season. I have to imagine it has something to do with not being in school anymore. No homework or papers or classes to occupy my time. This is my first "free" autumn...I'm free to enjoy it, to drink it in. Granted, I'm ridiculously busy...but that's mostly of my own doing and I can work on scaling that back a bit. I'm really excited for my first "grown up" fall. I'm excited for the cooler weather, the warm drinks like spiced cider. I'm excited for the changing leaves and the autumn moon, the pumpkins and scarecrows. I'm excited for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Fall is going to be great! (especially because I don't really have to worry about tests or papers...conducting doesn't count...it's just fun!)

Hi Jaina,

I think you already know Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love it, love it, love it! The only problem with Fall is:

"Fall goes so fast! I hate that! It's like a quick but intense romance. Here today, going tomorrow!"

Have a lovely and splendid week-end.

Everything about it is beautiful and there's this "enjoy it! drink it up! time's running out!" urgency to the beautiful skies, the crisp air, the leaves. Not to mention football season, back to school, the approach of holidays, and jeans and sweaters again. I love it!! After the sweltering summers where I live, Fall is like heaven.

Jaina said...

Gramma Ann-Too true. I hope your weekend has been as lovely and beautiful as mine has!

Mrs. D-Very true, particularly for where my parents live. It's a little milder here, but still, the fresh crisp of fall is wonderful.

Fall is my favorite time of year! Glad you are able to enjoy it now.

Reading this just made me want some warm spiced cider!

Jaina said...

Beth-Mmmm, that sounds really good. :)

Hi Jaina,
Thanks for your comments on my last few posts. I can tell you really care whether I am having a bad day or not. Fall did seem to change in my mind when I no longer had school and all that went along with it. Now you can enjoy the beauty of the changing leaves and the frost in the morning and all that other good stuff! I got tagged for a photo tag and have subsequently tagged you! Come on by to see what this is all about! I hope you play along!
Again enjoy your first grown up fall!
Ryanne!

Ryanne-You're welcome, and thank you :) I'll come check out the photo tag...I'll have to wait to be on my home computer though where all of my photos are. Should be interesting. :)

Fall is my FAVORITE time of year. I find it so comforting and relaxing (despite the build up of holiday season around the corner) and fun and enjoyable. I love the colors and the smells and the feel of the cooler air. Beautiful!

Jaina said...

April-Absolutely. Though I love the holiday build up too. :)I just love this season without the burden of reading and papers and classes...I feel like I'm seeing fall for the very first time. :)

We never really get a Fall season, but I always love the concept of it ;)

Jaina said...

Supercool Mom-Well, we don't get the neat fall that say, maybe the east coast gets, but I still love it. :)
