I love fall. I love the sunshiney days, the trees showing their colors, the cooler weather and the overall feeling of excitement with the changing of the seasons.
I do not, however, love the falling leaves. The nighttime that sets in at 5:30 p.m. or the snow on November 1, when we should be experiencing 50s or 60 degree temperatures.
I feel like we’re already changing seasons and winter is here. And winter technically won’t be “here” for another month. I don’t like the transition from fall to winter. The shorter days, the hours I spend mulching and bagging leaves because I have several ginormous oak trees in the yard.
We’re going to attend the holiday parade this morning, and I have plans to collect leaves this afternoon. I had to tell my husband this week that my Saturday plans involved leaves. Put it out there in the universe and it’ll happen, right? (And Sunday we have a 100% chance of rain, so I really need to focus on the leaves on Saturday.)
I love fall. I just don’t love the end of fall, it seems.
Welcome back to another week of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This is the time where I spend 5 minutes free writing. I usually post this for Saturday morning, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen. It’s totally fine.
Want to participate? The rules….
1. Set a timer for five minutes. (Or keep tabs with your computer’s clock.)
2. Write freely. Any topic. Whatever is on your mind. It doesn’t even have to be completely cohesive.
3. Tag on social media with #SOCSaturday or #SOCSunday and link up below. You have all day Saturday and Sunday to join the link up. It closes Monday morning.
4. Click around and give some comment/blog love.
