I have really been enjoying the fall this year. Not that I hate the fall usually but, being a So Cal girl transplanted to the Pacific Northwest, when the days get gray and drizzly, the temps dive, and the sun is gone by 5 PM, it can kind of wear on a girl. Day dreams of warm sand between my toes and ocean waves crashing fill my head, and my mood can kind of falter.
But the last couple of years have been different. I don't know if it is because I am finally acclimating (It has only taken me 6 years!), or maybe it is my little deer herd that have adopted us as family and show up several times a day to peer into the windows hoping for some treats. I don't know. All I do know is that I have been in the best of moods (with a few detours thanks to the flu and allergies) and look forward to each and every day. WOW, I am starting to sound like one of those perky people that have a perpetual smile and are constantly saying "Have a nice day"? Ya, those are the people that I usually want to smack right about now! Maybe the aliens came and I am actually a pod person and not really me at all? AHH!
