Good morning, my fellow person-people!
This is going to be a short post. I’ve gotten a tad swamped with work, and it’s impacting my schedule. I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining or anything, and it’s not like my situation is dire. It’s just that in between proofreading, editing, and writing, I want to find some time to sit back and read a book, go for a walk, or play a video game.
And occasionally, planning out a blog post can cut into that time.
I pinky swear that this is not going to become a habit. I’ll stop half-assing these posts.
Or, well, when I do, I’ll have a very good reason for it.
Anyways, just wanted to pop in and let you Above Average readers know that the weather has finally gotten pleasant where I live. It used to be that there was a noticeable increase in temperature when I stepped outside. The last vestiges of summer were really overstaying their welcome.
But today, when I went to go take a walk around 5pm, it was actually a bit…chill.
It’s very slight, and I’m sure it’s still hovering around room temperature, but the summer has finally decided to hightail it out of here, making way for a probably very brief autumn. Where I live, autumn doesn’t really exist. At least not in an observable sense.
There are no trees that change colors pleasantly into reds and yellows. There is no extended period of time where it is only slightly chilly. I’m telling you, in a few days, it’ll just be cold, and the leaves will have died and fallen in brown clusters on the ground.
The only real way to tell it’s autumn is when the local Starbuckses (we have several) start selling that Pumpkin Spice.
So I have to enjoy this tiny grace period when the weather is just nice without being too cold, before it nosedives into winter.
Which means more sweaters.
And more coffee. That too.
