Move Along

I think there is something wrong with me. Today is a warm 70 something degrees in the middle of October and I am annoyed. Most people would love the warm weather to stick around as long as it could. Not me. Maybe it is from my North Dakota upbringing that I am ready for winter coats in October, but I am ready to say "WRAP IT UP, Yo" to summer.

I like jeans, thick socks, hooded sweatshirts that are far too old, and puffy vests...ohhhh...puffy vests. I like when my morning coffee warms me up and not just wakes me up. I like the smell of crunchy leaves around five o'clock in the evening. I can't get into my apple and pumpkin lovin' when the weather is this warm. Doesn't Mother Nature get it...it is time to move on.

I am TOTALLY with you on this one- we had 2 days last week that were like 95 degrees and I was completely disgusted. It's bonfire and chili-makin' weather! We get some relief, however, because this Thurs? It's supposed to snow. I don't like that, either.

Well, you can come to Adams! Most of the leaves are off the trees and crunching under our feet. I have worn my puffy vest twice, and hooded sweatshirts are already well worn! I am not complaining; this is my favorite time of year too.

Tomorrow they say snow. I could wait a little longer before that!

I am almost ready for the winter weather. I have been meaning to take my snowblower in to get fixed for a couple months now. I got a phone call then telling me about a recall on the gas tank. Maybe I'll get to that this weekend.

Sara, We woke up to snow yesterday, but I'm wishing the warm weather and fall leaves were back. As they say, the snow is always whiter on the other side... :)
