This weeks blog topic is quite interesting & a little more difficult as I get into writing it, than I had expected. Guess I better put my thinking cap on.
I was challenged to blog about, "Do you prefer the shorter days and longer nights or do you long for warmer, longer days again?"
Although I definitely prefer the longer days so that I can get more things done before nightfall, I must admit I do not miss the hot, steamy, sweltering days of heat index above 100. I definitely love the cooler days & night that Fall brings, it's wonderful to walk outside without immediately breaking out a sweet. Some of the things I love about the shorter days & longer nights are:
I get more sleep because the temperatures are milder & because with it getting dark earlier I find myself going to bed at a decent hour.
I love being able to walk in the cool of the late afternoon, taking in the beauty of the radiant colors of foliage.
I also love all the wonderful varieties of soups & chilis & stew that are typical this time of year.
But I do think there's something in every season to enjoy but this time of year far outweighs the other seasons for my preference.
