I think we’ve all heard of the winter blues… you know in March when you’re done with the snow and cold and all you want is a peek of the sun? I think I’m having that but opposite – summertime blues.
I am done with summer. DONE.
Give me overcast days, cold air and frost on the ground, cardigans, boots and a hot cup of tea.
I know there’s gotta be someone out there thinking, “Fran. You’re crazy”.
And maybe I am. But living in El Paso is sucking the happy out of my soul with every day that has temperatures over 90. We turned our AC in February or March for pete’s sake. That’s a solid 6 months of summer weather already, with a minimum of 3 still left to do – and I am done.
My mind and body are ready for Halloween, pumpkins, and the anticipation before Thanksgiving dinner… and then I look at the calendar and it’s only July 16. And then I look at the weather forecast and it’s going to be in the 100’s this weekend/early next week.
Thanks, but no thanks.
I need 50’s and overcast. I need a cold autumn rain and leaves changing colors, the first snow of the season. aka, things that will never happen in El Paso.
So excuse me while I wallow in some more summertime blues.
