I was going to call this “Fall and Winter Thoughts,” but I like the word ‘autumn’ better despite the fact I usually say fall instead of that word.
I live right across the street from St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption here in Covington, Kentucky. I have a beautiful view of it from my apartment which I’ve said here before. Maybe what I haven’t said here before is on the days I head over to the corner of happy and healthy—Walgreens—I’ll park my behind on one of the benches at the cathedral to vape for a little bit before finishing my journey to Walgreens. Vaping is ‘smoking’ an electronic cigarette. I’m enjoying sitting there this fall as I won’t be able to do that in the winter. I’ll miss it.
Also with the view from my apartment window are two mountains, one to the left and one to the right. The leaves are beginning to turn on those mountains now and they look even more beautiful than usual. They won’t look that way in the winter.
I wear more clothes in autumn and winter, of course. The more clothes I wear, the better I look. Older people like me need to cover up more and that’s hard to do in the summer.
Fall and winter means more pockets to wear. I like that.
I live closer to The Dollar Tree Store than I do to Walgreens. I’ll be seeing more of Dollar Tree this fall and winter than Walgreens. This is OK as the dollar store is cheaper, but I like the employees in Walgreens better, so all of this is a mixed blessing.
I don’t really do any spring cleaning. I do fall—autumn—cleaning. You work up less of a sweat with the cooler temperatures.
Soup always tastes better in the fall and winter.
I always enjoy reading but starting in the fall, I read more than I do in the spring or summer. I guess that’s because of the cooler weather and not being able to go outside as often.
I think I can honestly say that I’ve never had “cabin fever” in the fall or winter. I just adjust my thoughts according to what I can or can’t do outside.
I always dread the first snowfall in the fall and/or winter. After that, I don’t much care. Bring it on and get it over with.
Those are my fall and winter thoughts. Oh, excuse me—autumn and winter thoughts.
