Fall Is In The Air

Summer technically does not end until next week, but autum is in the air, and as McDonald’s chimes, “I’m lovin’ it.”

Trees in Islip have already started turning shades of crimson and gold, and Starbucks has begun stocking my favorite hot caramel apple cider again. I’ve slipped back into cozy sweaters and hide under my down blanket while sleeping. School buses wake me up in the morning, and the smell of freshly-cut grass has been replaced by wafts of random chimney smoke or burning brush.

It’s difficult to peg my favorite season. When summer rolled around, I was more than eager to dip my toes in the ocean, build castles in the sand and partake in barbequed hot dogs and hamburgers. Yet, I still have a yearning for my backyard to be blanketed in white, my dog running around with a big snow beard on her snout. However, there’s something about crocuses peeking through melting ice and cool spring breezes.

I think I’ll take (E). All of the above. I’m happy to live in a place where there’s four distinct seasons.

    I think I like everything but winter. Spring and Autumn are my favorite though. 🙂
