Where did fall go? I swear, just two weeks ago, we had temperatures above zero, leaves still on trees, and that crisp, autumn scent still in the air.
Now everything is covered in snow, the temperature has dropped below -20, and I’ve nearly fallen on the ice more times than I can count.
Don’t get me wrong, I like winter, too. The snow can be really pretty, and I love cuddling up inside, in front of a fire, all wrapped up in a soft blanket. Plus, winter means Christmas baking and shopping for presents and laughing at Cookie as she hops around under the Christmas tree.
All of that said, I miss fall. I miss the colours and the smell. I miss the warmer temperatures and the promise of winter still to come (but not yet here!). I miss driving past the yellow fields of crops still waiting to be harvested.
Well, there’s no sense in dwelling on what I miss, I suppose.
