It's Not Fall Yet, Folks!!!

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of blogs showing Fall decorations.  Many have changed their blog background to reflect a change of season that has not actually taken place yet!  What's with all you people?  Around here we are still suffering through 80 degree weather, high humidity, mosquito infestations and all sorts of other summertime miseries.  We are also enjoying fresh picked peaches from the local orchard, fresh picked tomatoes from the back yard, all sorts of fresh vegetables from the local farm market, near constant birdsong, frolicking squirrels and other summer delights.  We still have some days to wait till the Fall Equinox and, while sometimes I'd like to fast forward as much as the next guy, time passes as time passes.  There is no hurrying it along.

I'll put out my Fall stitched items at the end of the month and my Halloween items will go on display in early October.  Living in the moment seems to be the most intelligent choice  ... why waste one's limited treasure of minutes wishing oneself forward or backward in time?    For now I have my lighthouse model, my deck prism and my port and starboard votive holders on my hall table ... somehow late summer and boats go together in my mind.  Must be living so close to the Hudson River that has me thinking that way.

Still summer here in Wisconsin! We have been blessed with little mosquitos. HOORAY! I hate them.

I'm anxious to get to fall - I despise the summer as I get all wilty and grouchy with heat and humidity. And let's not talk about the mosquitos....

I'd love to see a pic of your summer display though. My husband and I are lighthouse fanatics and I have quite a collection of deck prisms. I used to keep one on my desk in my office, and it was always a conversation starter. Very few people knew what it was.

I know what you're saying. Hard to think fall when it is still in the 90s.

So glad to hear of someone else who doesn't want to rush the seasons along! :)

I heartily disapprove of summer and am happier thinking that autumn is just around the corner! I love the cool, dusty feeling as everything gets ready to go to sleep.

If it's any consolation, the meteorological start of autumn begins September 1st~ :D

Here in the mountains of NC the leaves are actually starting to change. It is, as I type, 59ºf and dropping. So yes, we are experiencing Fall already. Fall is my favorite time of the year. So I am actually on time where I am.

I like fall and when I went to work this morning it was 46 degrees. I really like stitching fall things. I gravitate to the fall colors. Summer is not one of my favorite seasons.
