It’s that time of year when I think of ~ Falling leaves and a rake ~ Big bright orange pumpkins and homemade bread ~ Cinnamon and spice ~ Crock pot and soup simmering all day ~ Dark autumn evenings paired with light from candles ~ A shift from laid back summer days to a spring in my step…In fact, I’m normally giddy for this time of year by mid August.
…But, I just can’t seem to get into the spirit this year. What is wrong with me? I’m never like this. I’m still in summer mode and I’ve never been a summer kinda gal. I think So Cal is rubbing off on me. That could be the # 1 reason.
My nail tips went from pink (two weeks ago) to white this week. And the orange has yet to surface. I’m not ready,
And the thought just hit that I have yet to make our Thanksgiving reservations. I am way behind compared to years past.
As I contemplate the idea of putting up the Christmas tree in 6 weeks, I’m just not so sure I’ll be ready. What happened to me?
I had better get a move on and tuck summer away and get on with autumn. But how does one flip that inner switch?
Until then, enjoy the moment no matter the feeling. And please, somebody pinch me, I want to wake up and feel autumn in my heart.
