The calendar says it's Fall. But our weather says otherwise.

One of our local weather forecasters calls this time of year our "sneaky summer".

I agree.

The temperatures this week will be in the 80's and 90's at my house and 10 degrees (or more) higher in the inland valleys.

Fall weather?  Nope.

Tomorrow, we'll probably be floating in the pool.  Making it through one more week of warm weather.  Preparing another meal on the grill and eating outside on our patio.

I'm glad it will be some time before we have to turn on the furnace but I have to admit that I'm looking forward to the chill in the air in the mornings and pulling out blankets to snuggle up on the couch in, pulling on my Ugg boots in the morning, sweatshirts and  sipping mugs of hot cider. 

However, that weather is likely not going to arrive until November.  Maybe even late November.

Today it's still shorts and bare feet weather.

YOu may have to come out here for some truly cold weather. Have you ever been out here when it's smack in the middle of winter? I can't remember. Snowy days and wood burning in the stove downstairs. The best!

Yup, we've been out there in winter (my first time was when Grace was born,remember? haha!) and I loved the snowy, cold weather! We came out another time in February/March and there was snow--so beautiful! The change of seasons make me happy!
