Fall has officially arrived here in Cedar City. I love fall. It is my very favorite season. I love the crisp chill in the air, the vivid blue of the sky, the turning of the leaves, the smells...everything. It was something I sorely missed while living in Arizona. Fall never really came there...the crisp chill would sort of arrive by mid-December and possibly stay till the end of February, but that's it. In September it's still 100 degrees there! I'm still getting the playgroup emails from my AZ crowd and I can't believe they're doing things like playing in the sprinklers at the zoo! I can't comprehend anymore, because I'M FREEZING TO DEATH!
It was colder here yesterday than it ever gets in Arizona, except on very rare occasions. (It did snow in Phoenix in March, so I shouldn't say never...) Anyway, it's only going to get colder, and I DON'T HAVE ANY APPROPRIATE CLOTHING! I've lived in capris and tee shirts for the past 3 years. To make matters worse, I don't quite fit into the jeans and long pants I do have yet. So I have two choices: Go on a major crash diet or spend a fortune on warm clothing.
But for now I am just going to go get in my flannel PJ's and snuggle with Sophia in my nice warm bed...I can always make that decision tomorrow.
