Even though I enjoy the way everything looks golden under the low-slung sun, and making crunchy noises when you walk on piles of fallen leaves, and slurping down piping hot butternut squash soup, fall is inevitably tinged with a bit of sadness...
...Coz fall means winter is right around the corner, which of course means you'll be shrouded under a bleak, gray sky for months. Yuck.
With the only thing to look forward to during winter being X'mas, I secretly wish that right after I open all my X'mas presents, I'll wake up and find myself on a beautiful spring day in April. I should have been a polar bear.
Thanks goodness this winter we've got Bryson, who gives us a reason to wake up every morning- especially since he learned barking incessantly (and hoarsely) will get us out of bed and feed him his breakfast at his will. Although, I'm fairly sure he wouldn't mind gorging himself on a feast then going into hibernation with us for a few months.
Check out Bryson's Fall Day album any time for a dose of anti-depressant.
