I Don't Care

I don't care what the calendar or anyone else says.
It's fall.
I need it, I want it, I NEED it.

I want to turn off the annoying air and fans.
I want to burn candles everywhere.
I want to wear my wooly socks and flannel pj's.

Hunkering down inside my cocoon does not seem
as quirky (or psychologically damaging), in the fall
 as it does in the blaze of summer.

I want the kids home for the holidays,
and the pooches to stop panting
especially when Howie rocks the bed..
pant pant pant
"Get off!"

I want soups and stews and crusty breads
and an adjustable waistband.

I don't care, it's what I want.

Sounds perfect soup, candles, fire in the woodstove ... it has been a hot, dry Summer even this far north.
Soon your wish will come true.

Tracey Broome said...

Me TOO!!!! I don't care either, I am wearing flannel, I just pretend I'm not sweating:)

I feel the same way. For the last 5 years summer has been an agony. I love our spring in nc- the yard,the planting and things growing- then summer arrives and UGG. I wait out my days in air conditioning watching for even one sign of fall.

MEM said...

Right On! Today is the first day in months we can tolerate being outside so some trimming got done, getting ready to eat steak cooked on the grill and plan to paint outside tomorrow.....Hooray for fall! And yes, I like having to wear long sleeves and socks with my shoes.

Here Here!! Today I decided I was ready for chicken pot pie, and was perusing the cozy slippers in the store. You're funny (:

Anna Hanley said...

Gail Thayer said...

Totally on board with this!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait for really cool, crisp favorite time of the year!

Blondie's Journal said... said it perfectly! The cold weather gives me an okay to stay in and snuggle with my dogs. Going out in the cold and snow makes me appreciate it all the more! And yes, to just throw on a pair of sweat pants and not care about my waistline!!


Jillayne said...

Me too - I want to wear a sweater. I am with you 100% on this - tired of summer and all the extra work it brings. I want to hide out in my house without feeling like I need a good reason, and make dinner in the oven. yes, yes, I love this post!

Robin Larkspur said...

Good for you - it take courage to grow up and become who you really are - you go, girl!!

Tami said...

It all sounds good to me, where can I sign up!?

Romeo said...

You go right ahead not caring! After all who says you HAVE to go by the calendar?!? People now wear white in the winter so why not enjoy winter in the summer?!? See!!! It rained here today and got down to 66!! Don't think for one minute that we didn't take advantage of that! Socks, long sleeved shirt and a nice warm bed! With those enjoy!
