I know there are several fall lovers who read this blog and I hope you're happy....fall is here.  :-(

I know it is here not just because the calendar says so but because there is a house that we drive by on our way to school that has a very cool in-ground pool in its backyard and I love to check it every day just to make sure that there is still sparkling, inviting, beautiful blue water in it.  Until one day, every year, it happens....the water is gone, the pool is covered, and a little light goes out of my life (not too overly dramatic I trust).  Well, ladies and was that day.

So bring on the SAD, break out the sun light, get the crock pot ready to go.....the BIG NASTY is coming and if it is anywhere near as bad as last year I might as well check myself into the psych ward right now.

I know your feelings but try to
"love the autumn weather" anyway...

Autumn Song by Katherine Mansfield
Now's the time when children's noses
All become as red as roses
And the colour of their faces
Makes me think of orchard places
Where the juicy apples grow,
And tomatoes in a row.

And to-day the hardened sinner
Never could be late for dinner,
But will jump up to the table
Just as soon as he is able,
Ask for three times hot roast mutton--
Oh! the shocking little glutton.

Come then, find your ball and racket,
Pop into your winter jacket,
With the lovely bear-skin lining.
While the sun is brightly shining,
Let us run and play together
And just love the autumn weather.
