It started last night. I was watching the news, something I rarely do at night, and the weather report for the upcoming week was being reported.
Immediately when I saw that the temperature was going to be in the 70’s today, lower 70’s, I got excited. I thought to myself tomorrow after honey leaves for work I’m going to put on a pot of coffee and while it’s brewing, I just may take a little stroll outside of the apartment and let the cool air caress my skin.
I so love when the season begins to change from super duper hot, with humid and stuffy mornings where the air just lays on you; to the crisp and sometimes sunny morning air where you can feel the air on your skin, but it feels invigorating. At least for me it feels invigorating. I love when I can put my jeans and everyday shoes on or a nice pair of ankle boots. I love the light sweaters at first and then the serious cable knit ones as the weather gets even colder. Is this a strange love? Most of my FB friends are whining about it being too cold already but I love it. I love when the hubby and I can go for a “Sunrise Saturday” and the air has a little bite to it. The crisp air seems to make the Sun seem just a little brighter as it comes up out of its resting envelope, that’s how it looks to me, and paints the sky with its brilliant colors.
I love how even the aromas of the season are different. You start to notice a more woodsy smell in the air as the neighbors begin to light fires in their fireplaces. You seem to pick up that spice note as you walk pass the coffee shops and bakeries because they have started baking richer more decadent treats for us to enjoy.
For some reason the cooler and colder months I enjoy better than the warmer and steamy hot months because it always seems to easier to get warm in the colder months than it is to get cool in the warmer months. I love how people begin to change the decor on their homes, and storefronts. Little quaint boutiques and shops take great care in preparing just the right window dressing to draw you into the store and the atmosphere is always different when its colder.
Call me crazy if you like. I don’t mind. I just love the season change from hot to cool, to cold. If you love it then share.
