According to my calendar, today marks the official first day of fall.
I didn’t appreciate fall until I was in college, majoring in procrastination. I’d tell myself, “Irene it’s like 10 o’clock, you need to start on your homework assignment.” Ugh, I know. Then I’d look at the clock and it’d only be 6. Time change, you are a Godsend. I’d get super excited and run around the apartment coming up with things to do that didn’t involve any homework.
Those days are long over and now I can’t help but get a wee bit sad that the days are getting shorter. But, I do love me some Halloween and I also enjoy stuffing my face on Thanksgiving, so to celebrate this new season I will be laying out. Southern California weather, you too are a Godsend.
