Happy autumnal equinox!

Happy equinox, wherever you may be, whether you are having an autumnal one or a vernal one, like me!

Actually, I've always hated autumn, but I'm hopeful that this one will be better.

Wait a minute. Summer's over? How will I tell the difference? Wendelland had hardly two weeks of hot days spread over the last three months! Highs in the 70s (fahrenheit), lows in the 50s; consistently pleasant but quite lacking in drama. That three day period when it was hotter in Avila Beach (105) than in Van Nuys - that was something! And this year's rainy season didn't go beyond 'moist' (all the local vineyards may end up making raisin wine if this keeps up). I understand better than most people that the oncoming Climate Change won't be a "Global Warming", but the weather in L.A. was boring enough; how'd I end up moving to an area Changing to NO Climate?

How many of you people recovering from hurricanes are now totally hating the Wendell?

Thanks, you too!

I'm super-bummed out for a number of reasons today, another wasted summer being one. I only went swimming once, didn't do any of the things I wanted to.
This helped a little.

I love autumn. Cool weather, changing leaves, apple cider, pumpkins and Halloween, Thanksgiving...

The saddest thing I've ever seen were Christmas trees in a parking lot in Miami in 80 degree heat, molting like fake fur. I'm happy to have the seasons back.

Heh. Christmas in Australia.

Would it be inappropriate to make a pumpkin pie for dinner tonight? Autumn is my favorite season, even when the weather is still decidedly summer-ish.

(confidential to wendell: Oddly enough, the two days following Hurricane Ike were the most pleasant of the whole summer - mid 70s, low humidity, beautiful cloud formations...)

I love autumn, too. Absolutely love it.

Warm pumpkin pie and french vanilla ice cream with a hot cup of dark roast coffee. I LOVE autumn.

i love autumn.
Crunchy, brisk, fire, jackets, boots, cuddling, blankets, long dark nights and questionable promise.
For me it is optimism.

Sorry, I can't stand it. Except for the part where all the bugs piss off for a few months.

My favorite season. And the equinox is a true holiday for me; a cascade of little blessings. Number one today: apple cider!

Thank you! I'm happy. Yesterday we had a thunderstorm, today the weather is too perfect... crystal clear and crisp (we're having a bit of a cool snap). Glorious. I'm alive again!

Thanks! I'm an autumn lover, too. This whole time of year, from back to school right through New Years is my favorite. Chilly nights, layers of clothes, hot chocolate with marshmallows, the colors of the leaves. Ahhhh..
