This past weekend, the weather was just perfect. We’re closing in on my favorite time of year; fall. Even though Florida sucks at showing any kind of sesonal change, the weather around here couldn’t be better from late September through November and sometimes December.
It was still a little hot on Saturday, but there was a constant breeze blowing. We attended my son’s football game, which ran over by about 2 hours. Even though it was warm, the breeze took the edge off. The sky’s were blue and the evening was phenomenal.
I don’t know what it is about fall, but I get this calmness over me. From now until after New Year’s, life takes on a brighter view. The weather, I’m sure, has a great deal to do with it. I also think the memories of past Fall seasons, Thanksgiving and Christmas help place the mood. I know that the holidays are coming and I get pumped about it.
I can’t put my finger on my feelings and describe it the way it comes across to me, but it’s just a warm and light hearted feeling. It’s a feeling you had as a kid when Christmas morning came rolling in. The feeling of being out with good friends and being carefree. The feeling of seeing the one person who always takes your breath away. Catching fireflies in the early evening or watching the sun set on the beach.
Got the idea?
