I just came across some photos (not mine) from the autumn season. Like, really autumn – not the half-hearted season we get here in South Florida. Real leaves changing color. Cold weather. mounds and mounds of different colored pumpkins. It just made me truly long for the season once again! Well, it’s cold-ish now, I guess, but it’s also pouring rain…ughhh. I’m longing for pumpkin bread and pumpkin lattes and pumpkin muffins again. It’s my favorite time of year and I can’t believe I have to wait another 7 or 8 months for it again! I am just dreading the summertime this year. Dreading the heat. It seems to get hotter and hotter every year. I just want this cool weather to stay around.
So, the rain. It’s raining. Again. I have about a zillion errands to do today (including going to the bookstore and buying up the rest of the Sookie Stackhouse series… seriously… I’m addicted now after reading book 1 and part of book 2). And rain does not go with my plans. When you have a toddler, and you want to run errands, it just does not work – getting the kid into the car, strapping them in, getting the stroller in or out, getting the child in or out of the stroller… it’s a nightmare. By the time you get into the car, everyone and everything is soaked and freezing. It’s not even worth it.
I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that the rain lets up so I can get out and get my stuff done. Until then I’ll try to finish some more work and play with Zachary… and maybe read more of the next Sookie Stackhouse book if I get lucky! ;)
