It rained today, and while this is not that big of a deal, it did make me realize that weíre officially in the fall season. Itís getting colder, Halloween has passed, and Thanksgiving (at least in the States) is right here. So naturally, as the rain brought with it a cold front, I decided to dig out my wooly socks and get officially ready for some fall fun.

Giant Sweatshirt and Wooly Socks

If there were a uniform for the cooler weather, it would be a giant sweatshirt, pajama pants and wooly socks. While you might not shop or head to school in this get up, itís perfect for talking on the phone, working on the computer, or my personal favorite, snuggling fur babies on the couch in front of the fire. I love the feeling of padding around in the wooly socks and pulling my hands inside the sweatshirt when they start to feel cold. Itís the perfect solution to the too-cool-to-be-warm, but too-warm-to-be-freezing weather that usually comes in the fall.

The Great Outdoors

The fall is also the perfect time to venture outside. As I mentioned, rain is very possible, but it rains far less in the fall than it does in the spring, so these clear, cool days are perfect for playing outside. Iíve taken in my share of football games sitting on cold metal bleachers, Iíve hiked through the woods, Iíve gone on bike rides with the wind making the tip of my nose red, and Iíve admired the fall colors. While nobody comes on vacation to my neck of the woods to see the leaves change, the foliage does change around here and watching the dry green leaves turn gold and red before falling from the trees is just part of the outdoors ritual.

Homework and Chalk Dust

Okay, none of my teachers use chalk anymore, but something about this time of year makes me think of old fashioned schools with chalkboards and book straps. It must make my teachers remember the good old days, too because my homework load is much heavier that it seemed to be just a month ago. No worries, however Ė the cool weather is invigorating and I seem to have more energy to tackle the assignments, especially if I can open the window for fresh air and don my wooly socks.

Autumn Romance

Summer love is great and all, but fall romances are much more fun in my book. Take your crush to the school football game and snuggle under a blanket with a hot chocolate. Or take that blanket and hot chocolate on a picnic to look at the leaves and enjoy some quiet time together. Rake fallen leaves together and take turns jumping into the leaf pile or pull on your wooly socks, plop your feet in his lap and stay inside where the heat is on and you can watch your favorite movies together.

It's snowing where I live right now.

Maybe I would have used these earlier.

Why doesn't anybody think of the higher elevations?!?!

Yay! I knew other people had to like the wooly socks! Anyhoo, I'm officially in the Christmas season spirit, I saw a christmas concert last night, filled with christmas songs and dancing and decorations, the weather was even chilly. Fall and Winter, my favorite seasons.

Lovely article, allons-y!
