It seems to me like everyone is in a great big rush for fall to go ahead and get here.
Everywhere I go lately, people have their pumpkins and gourds out in their yards, along with all kinds of other fall decorations.
Not only that, all of the coffee shops and bakeries are already pushing pumpkin spice coffee and muffins. I think it’s ridiculous, since the weather around here hasn’t even really started cooling off yet. We are still running our air conditioning at home, and so in my book, that means it’s still summertime. I mean, unless I’ve had to switch the thermostat over from cooling to heating, then technically it’s still summer. And in the summer, it’s time for flip flops, ice cream, the pool, and the air conditioning. It’s true enough that I will probably be glad to see the last of the high A/C bills at the end of the summer, but I won’t be happy to see summer go. I personally don’t understand what the rush is to have fall here already. I guess it will be nice to start using the fireplace and the gas furnace, but I also don’t want to have to pay a high heating bill either! Once the weather finally starts cooling down, I will feel like it’s finally fall. I do love fall, but I don’t know what everyone is in such a big hurry about. I think people must just like using their furnaces instead of their air conditioners. Other than that, I don’t really get what the big rush is all about!
