Sweater Weather



I think I suffer from a bit of seasonal affective disorder. S.A.D.


Every fall as the trees burst forth with vibrant color and the heat of summer is replaced with the crisp chill in the air, I feel

              uninspired

                    Defeated

                         Melancholy

                                 YUCKY!!!


I can't help it. I miss my springtime and I miss the fun of summer. I hate the fact that the sun sets so early and that my flip flops have to be replaced with socks and sneakers/shoes.


My toesies were just not meant to be confined!!!

My husband thinks that I waste too much time hating autumn when I should appreciate the the awesomeness of Fall. I do try...






"Oooo look at the pretty colors of the leaves."

 "Hot Chocolate. yum"

                       "Leaves....Oooo"

OK, I tried.

Seriously I really do try,  but instead of appreciating Fall, I  keep feeling  envious of my bloggy buddies who live in warm states like Florida and California. I even envy my bloggy pals in Australia who are now enjoying springtime in their part of the world.


 I won't give up. I am off to find my bliss in autumn ...will I find it? I hope so....but I think I will play the lottery just in case. If I hit the number then you guys in Florida watch out...I'll be down there in no time in my brand new...

  3. I know how you feel. I do have a sweater that I love and that takes the sting out of it a bit. I do LOVE fall, BUT it's what comes after that I don't.:(

  4. I think you do have a point especially living in the north. I used to live in the north and understand your feelings. It does make a difference living in Texas. After a hot summer in Texas we look forward to the cooler Fall temperatures. Even though we have a little color change on the trees I do miss the brilliance of the colors in the north. I guess you have to focus on the things that make you happy at that time of the year.

  5. Hi Barb, I guess you are right we didn't really get a scorching summer this year. I wish I was a snow bird and travel whenever it gets too cold or hot...oh to dream :0)

  6. We have had such a hot summer here in San Diego that I am really looking forward to some cold. I realize it is not the same. My sweaters are in a vacuum bag deep in the closet.

  8. I love fall, but I hate winter! I get uninspired and a little blue also. Let's just hope it's a mild winter and spring hurries up!
