My Pros and Cons of Autumn

Cons:

Yea yea yea, it’s officially Autumn, so what. Today marks my least favorite time of the year for the Western part of the world. For one, I don’t celebrate holidays, so this is the time where people look at me like I got 3 eyeballs, a long green nose, and a broomstick hid away somewhere. At this time of the year flowers and pretty plants wither, and everything loses its vibrant colors and instead becomes a collection of blacks and grays.

The trees look creepy all naked like that, someone should find some leaves to cover them. This is basically the time of year where everything dies and the Earth is cold (and I utterly despise the cold).

But…

Pros.

What I do like about the Autumn (or what I like to call the reading) months is the peace it brings to our homes on the inside. Since were pretty much buried in, this is the time to catch up on some much needed studying. It is the time to cook foods that warm your soul like Chili, Greens, and Macaroni and Cheese fresh out the oven. And it is the time where we must turn up the heat and snuggle under the covers next to our lovers.

Summer is the time to get out and about and smell the fresh air. Winter and Fall however, is the time to be homebodies. A time to relax with a cup of warm tea, hot chocolate or coffee. I mean sure, you have a cup of coffee every morning but none of them can compare to the feeling of having the steamy liquid to engulf your throat when it’s bitter cold outside.

The Fall / Winter months are also a great time to read so I will be looking to put my Fall Reading List together. I think perhaps I’ll even challenge myself to get through a certain number of books this year. My only set back is that I don’t want it to cut down on my scripture reading time so I’ll have to stick to a nice balanced schedule. I mean you know, priority is everything.

Is this time of the year exciting to you? Is it not exciting? Why? I would love to hear your pros and cons!

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – David McCullough

Welcome back to another Segment of Writer’s Quote Wednesday, hosted by Colleen of Silver Threading. This week, I draw inspiration from David McCullough. I wish I could like this in a post over and over again!

So true! Which is why I research as I’m writing :).

That’s it for my segment of Writer’s Quote Wednesday. I think the quote pretty much speaks for itself.

If You’re Excited About Empire

fox-empireThen you are NOT paying attention.

 

  • Why are people praising the Pope and what was his and Obama’s secret meeting about?
  • Why is everyone calling the election a joke and is there any truth to this and what would that mean?
  • Why are the Syrians leaving and the Russians coming in?
  • Why is China making Islands in the middle of the sea?
  • Why Did Japan OK greater overseas role for Military and what does this mean?
  • Why did a man wake up from a coma and remembers a completely different life and speaks in an ancient tongue?
  • Why is FEMA posting signs urging people to store water and food for a minimum of 30 days?
  • Why is the U.S. Dollar so weak? And do you even know that it is?

 

….Of course not. We have to get ready for our BBQ’s and get-togethers because Empire Premiers tonight.
