I do believe it’s fall.
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/mountaintops-and-valleys/
Yesterday it really felt like fall. I mean, it’s been starting to feel more and more like fall over the past couple of weeks, since the rain returned and the car windshields have needed sponging off in the morning. But for some reason, even though it was warm in the afternoon, yesterday it felt like fall.
BTW, fall feels different here than it did back in Saskatchewan. For one thing, in Saskatchewan, you never knew if a September day would be +30 or below zero (we’re talking Celsius here, just so you know). I mean, here, in September we wear a jacket and take it off if we need to (usually we don’t), but there? Just when you thought you could put those summer clothes away, it would be too hot to wear the fall clothes. And then one day, usually in October, but sometimes earlier, BAM! Winter (just like in May it’s suddenly summer. Spring? Doesn’t exist in Saskatchewan…).
Here, even though I was in denial earlier this week, I now know that it’s time to put away the capris and short-sleeved jackets and time to pull out the jeans and long-sleeved jackets (not much of a uniform shift, I know, but it’s what I wear!) I, however, am refusing to wear socks and boots until October. So there. Don’t get me wrong though. I love fall. It’s my favourite time of year. Fall…and Christmas. And since fall and winter, to me anyway, aren’t much different here (“winter” is rainier), fall and Christmas are kind of in the same season. And I also know that once I switch out the old wardrobe (such as it is) from summer to fall, I’m good until May!
That’s enough words for today I think. I know why you’re really here…
