You Capture - Fall

The calendar does indeed say it's fall:


But I live in Georgia. And in Georgia, we're a little slow about certain things. Quick to spring into spring, but always slow to fall into fall. Which is certainly fine with me. If I had my druthers, I'd skip fall and winter and maybe even spring and live a life of perpetual summer...

Anyway, here in Georgia, everything is still green:

We have really only encountered two things that give us an inkling that fall is on the way. The first is cooling temperatures, but even those will probably rise again before fall is really, truly ushered in. And, of course, cooling is such a relative term. Today's high in the mid-70s is cool to me but probably warm to someone up north.


Secondly, there is the matter of this mini-Darth Vader we have loitering around the house:


Yep, 31 days and counting.

Can't Darth use the Force to make fall and winter go away? Or at least postpone tomorrow's spelling test?

Darth made me laugh.

And I'll stick to my 36 degree temperatures right now. I don't "do" heat.

Happy Fall!

Too funny! I am in the Florida panhandle and we spent last weekend at a water park so I know what you mean about the weather! I was thrilled to walk outside yesterday morning and see the thermometer at 70...and it is even cooler today!

My poor baby wakes up freezing to death since those low temps have been in the 50's. I love spring. Summer's great. Fall is ok right now. I hate winter. I hate cold.

Darth looks soooo ready!

And your last comment? Thank you! Brought a huge smile!

Just this week the humidity seems to be over-thanks goodness! That is always worse, to me, than the heat.

Oh, I envy your mid-70s! Especially after a few days in the 50s, which is actually cool for these parts (Wisconsin). Love the Darth Vader costume! A definite sign of fall!
