Oh My Heck, It is HOT

Okay, first things first. “Oh my heck” is a common term in my new homeland and I LOVE it. I don’t know why. I really don’t. But oh my heck, do I smile when I hear it or read it on a forum. Now, let’s get to the real reason for this post.

Oh my heck, it is hot as fuck! Saturday we hit 103 and a very dry 103 is a lot hotter than what I’m used to being from Texas. With that said, I have never liked the heat, even as a kid. I was that kid that was not interested in a birthday party at the pool based on the temp. I was that kid that really didn’t see the need to socialize on a good day, so why socialize if it was above 80 degrees? lol. But seriously now, I don’t get those of you that prefer the heat. I mean, what the heck? I’d rather bundle up and put a stocking cap on my head than sweat in a tank and shorts. 

Are You a Spring?

I absolutely love the fall. The cooler temps, the changing of the seasons, the colors. It is just breathtaking, and beautiful. The blazing hot days of August are behind us, the chilly nights and cold mornings are in front of us. I have always loved the fall. It is when the leaves start to fall and the wind picks up, leaving the blooms blown about, with a dusty layer over them. It is a sign of changing times. 

What is your favorite season?

What is Your Season?

We all have our favorites. It is what makes us who we are. Which season is the one that rejuvenates your soul, makes you smile and gives you reason to smile? For me it would be fall. There is something about the changing of temps, the rustling of leaves, the changing colors and the promise for a winter. I remember as a kid, stepping off of the school bus, walking into the house and Mom had every window open. It was a cleansing of the dust and heat from the summer, the smell of the crisp air and the hope for cooler days that always made me happy. 

The last ten years Texas has not had much of a winter, which I have missed. We are either freezing balls for 5 days with sleet and strong north winds, or it is 80 degrees. I miss having seasons and in my search for new beginnings, I want a winter! Granted, I will most likely be bundled up when it is 50 degrees and beautiful, but I look forward to experiencing the beauty in the changes ahead. 

Please share with me, your favorite season and why.
