Spooky Spiders Week 2

Thursday, October 16, 2014

This weeks blog topic is quite interesting & a little more difficult as I get into writing it, than I had expected. emoticon Guess I better put my thinking cap on. emoticon

I was challenged to blog about, "Do you prefer the shorter days and longer nights or do you long for warmer, longer days again?"

Although I definitely prefer the longer days so that I can get more things done before nightfall, I must admit I do not miss the hot, steamy, sweltering days of heat index above 100. I definitely love the cooler days & night that Fall brings, it's wonderful to walk outside without immediately breaking out a sweet. Some of the things I love about the shorter days & longer nights are:

I get more sleep because the temperatures are milder & because with it getting dark earlier I find myself going to bed at a decent hour. emoticon

I love being able to walk in the cool of the late afternoon, taking in the beauty of the radiant colors of foliage. emoticon emoticon

I also love all the wonderful varieties of soups & chilis & stew that are typical this time of year. emoticon

But I do think there's something in every season to enjoy but this time of year far outweighs the other seasons for my preference. emoticon

    I also enjoy the longer days, being able to see without putting the lights on, but like most, I do not enjoy the heat of summer.

    On the other hand, I really can't handle the frigid temps of winter and tend to hibernate and go out very little.

    I do like the cooler temps of fall, the beautiful colours, and like you said, the soups and stews, etc and the fresh bounty in the grocery stores.

    But my fav is spring. The world is just waking up from the long cold winter, the temps start to get warm again without being too hot, the world is green and I enjoy the smell of the fresh air after a season of being inside.....

    You pointed out a lot of great things about having the shorter days in the fall. I always would get depressed when the time changed to standard again and I drove home from work in the dark. Don't have that concern anymore now that I'm retired!

    emoticon blog Donna! I too thought that having lived most of my life on a tropical Island, i would have chosen the warmer, longer day at the drop of the hat. I found that this was not the case because there are so many things that I like about the fall season and so I went back and forth between the two choices. So as you said there is something about every season to enjoy amd I will do so as the seasons change. emoticon for sharing.
