My brother asked an intriguing question on his Monday question that he sends out to like 300 friends. He was rambling on about the pluses and minuses of fall/autumn and then posed the question "What is your favorite season and why?"
That got me to thinking (yes, a scary thought) and I realized that I didn't have a favorite "season". I have a favorite period of months. Let me explain...
I like mid August to the 30th of October. Not necessarily a season because it overlaps summer and fall. It also does not include Halloween because honestly that is one of my least favorite holidays. (Now that I am an adult I can have candy any time I want.)
I like this time because the Cape gets quieter, but not empty.
Cool crisp mornings and evenings with warmish days.
The leaves changing.
Wearing shorts with a fleece vest or pullover.
Eating a fresh Macintosh apple.
Mums and pumpkins as decoration.
Pencils, pens and paper on sale and on display everywhere. (It's a weird love, I know.)
Cleaning up the house from the hot sticky summer and organizing things.
Do you have a favorite season or do you need to split months like I do? Don't get me wrong, I love all the seasons for different reasons, but if I had to narrow it down, this made up season of "Sumall", "Mmertum", "Sufall" is my winner!
