Labor Day is the unofficial end to summer and the beginning of fall. I am leaving my favorite season and moving to my other favorite season. Yes, I like both summer and fall equally, so that means I am happy for half of the year.
I know that spring brings flowers and green grass and baby bunnies, and baby birds. But, it also brings allergies and unpredictable rainy weather, which I do not like.
I know that winter brings beautiful pictures of snow, frost and ice and the death of mosquitoes and other bugs. But, it also brings cold temperatures, which I do not like.
Today I say goodbye to summer and hello to fall, the two best seasons of all.
Goodbye days by the pool
Hello nights by the fire
Goodbye sandals and painted toes
Hello warm fuzzy socks
Goodbye fresh fruits and vegetables
Hello steamy pots of soup
Goodbye buzzing locusts
Hello chirping crickets
Goodbye blooming flowers
Hello crunchy leaves
Goodbye dinners on the grill
Hello dinners in the crockpot
Goodbye sunsets coming through the door
Hello sunsets coming through the dining room window
