The Cold Wait

The changing of seasons from Summer to Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Where I live up North, we kind of have a transitional period from summer weather to the actual fall weather. This period lasts for about a month from the third week of August to the third week of September. It’s during this transitional period that the temperatures outside are usually pretty mild, and I just love to spend time outside. Once this period passes though, it’s a totally different story. From the last week of September to the middle of November, we have our real fall weather, and it’s not pleasant. The temperatures are usually in the forties and fifties, so it’s pretty chilly but not cold enough to turn on the furnace. Well at least in my husband’s opinion, it’s not cold enough. I really don’t like that time of year because it seems as if the days drag on as I wait for the time when I can actual turn on the furnace. The house is cold, and I usually have to dress in lots of layers to stay warm. I have to admit, the changing leaves and the smell of the crisp air of Fall is wonderful, but it’s just not wonderful enough to outweigh the cold wait. My husband knows that I get pretty chilly during the fall season, so he bought me two small electric heaters last year to help keep me warm. The heaters do help, but I still don’t think that I will ever enjoy the Fall like most do.
