Mother Nature is messin' with me!
The funny thing about living in Arizona is that the months change but the weather really doesn't. It's just hot. Hot all the time. And as many of you have read before, I get pretty grumpy when I am hot. I sweat like a guy and it's just, well, gross. I have my A/C turned down so it is going all the time...I don't even care when that $300 electric bill comes. (okay-I do because it cuts into my thrift shop perusing fund) But, I am willing to sacrifice in order to stay cool. I hear about parts of the country that are cooling down and I am completely jealous. I read about you pulling out your Fall decorations. But, Mother Nature keeps telling me to wait...that it's just not time yet. To me, Fall means cooler days and nights, sweaters, long pants, leaves turning colors, hunting for just the right pumpkin, football games with a blanket, shoes AND socks. Right now, Fall just means it's still hot and the kids get to wear their Halloween costumes without a coat when they go trick-or-treating. A blanket at the football games (or in my case, the volleyball games) is there only for the purposes of fending of my chronic case of bleacher butt. I won't be wearing long pants until way after Christmas (if at all!) and palm trees don't ever change color. I am totally out of whack here. I just finished up a few little projects so I think I will get out my fall fabrics. Maybe if I run my hands over the fall colors, it will help...It won't hurt anyway!
