Summer has given way to autumn. I know that because of the subtle temperature changes that have come forth in the mornings as I head out to work. Sure it’s still somewhat warm, but I’ve already started to look forward to my Keurig Chai Latte (and laid on supplies from Amazon in the past week) in the morning instead of a cup of flavored water. Too, I’ve started to use the heater in the bathroom again, I’ve broken out the plaid sweatpants that I wear in the evening instead of parading around in shorts as I’ve been doing the past few months.
I’m also seeing the change in colors of leaves here in the northeastern US. A definite hallmark of autumn. At least I don’t have to deal with the literal mountains of leaves I used to have to when I was living with my adoptive parents. Try having 2 1/2 acres (1.01 hectares) of trees dropping leaves on your property every autumn and see what you might have to do to get rid of them…at least then we were able to burn the leaves without having to jump through endless hoops…I doubt the people who own the property now are able to.
Finally, it’s going to affect when and how myself and my girl are going to be able to get together. Due to financial constraints and other instances, our plan to get together every couple of months has gone by the wayside. I can understand and appreciate that she has issues with driving in snow, so it may very well be the soonest we can get together again might very well be come spring 2019. That remains to be seen.
We’ve talked about it at length more than a few times. We’ll talk more about it in the future, guaranteed. The bond is strong. It will happen. Just have to be patient about it.
And I hate being patient.
