Resistance is Futile

Futile though it may be, I put up a good fight, but Autumn has well and truly arrived.

My denial has cost me dearly too because now with heavy rainfall warnings and a storm advisory, I’ve missed the window for putting the outdoor furniture away while it was still dry.  This will mean transporting it into the garage, spreading it all over the place until it dries, hopefully sometime prior to Christmas, before putting it away.

Sick of shivering inside my house and short of putting on a jacket and snowpants, (my indoor dogs already been wearing a sweater overnight) I broke down and switched on the furnace and lit the pilot light in the gas fireplace.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Fall, but I’m a Summer girl through & through and here we’ve just had a near-perfect one.  I have accepted the inevitable though and am feeling much happier about it now.  For instance, yesterday was my first run in the rain in a very very long time and I’d forgotten how refreshing that can be.  Plus if you’re like me, you run faster so that you can get home sooner.  The earthy scent of decaying leaves was mingling nicely with the smell of wood smoke wafting through the air.  The weather puts me in the perfect mood for enjoying a cozy weekend at home perhaps cooking some comfort foods, reading while curled up in my favourite chair, writing, napping, watching a movie, or perhaps all of the above.

I’ll look forward to Thanksgiving, just two short weeks from now.

  1. We are enjoying our first storm of the year as well. And just like you, we waited too long to secure our outdoor furniture and plants so my husband was running around in the wind and rain to move them to the garage. I laughed out loud at your comment about them drying around Christmastime. So true! Enjoy your cozy weekend in.

    • Thank you so much for reading. I’m so glad you could relate and we are not the only one’s. Today the weather is much drier, but I am feeling lazy and not about to go outside.
