It's that time of year . . . (part 2)

I love fall. There are so many things I love about it (as listed in my previous post). There also is a downside to it, too, though.

It's also that time of year when . . .

-allergies to some unknown something cause me MAJOR congestion. (I've had this for a month or so now.)

-the temperature changes (fluctuating wildly at times) and we often have a period of rain. This also causes changes in sinus pressure, and usually results in some period of throbbing ear pain and sore throat for me. Thus, I typically get sick for a period in the fall as my body adjusts to the temperature fluctuations and rain.

For as much discomfort (and sometimes illness) that fall causes me, I still love it! It will always be my favorite season.

It's that time of year . . . (part 1)

I LOVE Fall. It's one of the most gorgeous times of the year. There are so many wonderful things about it.

It's that time of year when . . .

- you can really ENJOY curling up under the covers, snuggled up in your bed. In spring/summer, you don't really need covers, and in winter, you stay under the covers out of necessity. But in the fall, you can just lie there and enjoy it!

-leaves change color, litter the ground, make delightful crunchy and swishy noises as you whisk your feet through them.

-you start to wear sweaters. The weather is milder (maybe) and a good comfy sweater is all you need. (Plus pants of course!)

-the sky is just more gorgeous. The contrast between the clouds and the sky just seem more vivid and delightful. The sunrises and sunsets are also mesmerizing.
