Winding up or winding down the seasons?
With the arrival of this morning’s cool breezes and some temporary relief offered by some cloud cover and even a few showers, Mother Nature seems to be signalling that changes may be on the way.
It only seems that Summer had just arrived because of the prolonged rain and even snow that hung on until late Spring this year, but after several weeks of hot, breath-like weather pushing into my face, and getting scorched as I got into my car, I am personally ready for cooler weather, some nice breezes and even some rain.
Fall is my favorite time of the year, in fact I would love it if by some magical power we could arrange to add another 3 to 4 months onto Fall.
Maybe I like it best because all the hassles of Summer have ended, all the youth camps, and projects and time altering activities that cut into work time and add additional expense, and cause stress to an already rough time of the year when it’s really hard for me to focus on doing my job which is selling real estate.
And after all in the Fall, there are Bear Lake raspberries, (Raspberry Days and Pickleville Playhouse), Peach Days (Brigham City), the Box Elder County Fair (Tremonton) and here comes football! – oh yeah I almost forgot about that! Then fly fishing starts to get good again, and Golf is much more enjoyable in the cool weather (except it’s harder for me to find my ball amongst the fallen leaves on the course). I can probably name at least 10 more great things about Fall!
And come to think of it, they also cost money, cut into work time and cause stress.
So, maybe it’s just me, or maybe it’s just the weather, or the fact that I don’t know if I’m winding up or winding down.
Either way I do enjoy the changes of the seasons, and am grateful for all the challenges, activities and opportunities I have while living in such a great place and at this most incredible time.
