Today was the first day it really felt like fall. I know it's been autumn for a while now, but it's still been fairly warm. Today, though, it was really cold in my house when I woke up. And I was really cozy all curled up in bed... and only got up to get a hot cup of coffee and read my book.
My dad put on Christmas music to listen to because he says that it's October now and he's waited long enough. And so that just makes everyone feel Christmassy, even though we still have quite a while, but Christmassy is a wonderful feeling.
The leaves are starting to change colors, too. Mostly it's still all green, but there are spots of orange and yellow and red here and there. Not that I don't love summer, because I do, but I'm glad that we're entering fall.
Because there is really nothing like waking up when it's cold but you're warm under quilts, and the sun is warm, and you can wear long sleeves and a sweater but not a heavy coat.
