Happy New (Rest of The) Year by Djuanna BrockingtonBy Djuanna Brockington • Sep 4th, 2009 • Category: Musings of a Mid-Life Diva • Email This Post • Print This Post
This is my favorite time of year. The temps are starting to drop and new beginnings abound. The tourists return home, the kids return to school, and I can return to my hermit like behavior.
For some reason, I feel like I have to be social during the summer. Take advantage of the warm weather and the sunshine. Like it’s a crime to be inside on a beautiful summer day.
Not so with fall. Cooler weather, jeans and boots, and cozy sweaters. Yay me. But best of all are those fall days when it’s chilly and gray and you’ve got a pile of great books waiting to be read and endless cups of tea for sipping. Now that is heaven on Earth.
Back when I was a student, the start of school marked the beginning of my year. Once my daughter was school-aged, that only solidified things. So not only is fall the time of chilling and relaxing, it’s also the start of my “mental” new year. Calendars be damned.
So, after not writing for a month, I’m back in the saddle, and I have to say that I have missed it much. I started writing for APOOO last September. Hard to believe it’s been a year already. I have loved the interaction with you guys, and I’m looking forward to a great year of letting our hair down about living, loving, and whatever else comes to mind.
Happy New Year Ladies. Tell me, what does fall mean to you?
(PS- All of your condolences regarding the loss of my sister are greatly appreciated.)
