It's a Gray and Gloomy Day - and I LOVE It!

The skies are gray. It's damp and drizzly. There's a little chill in the air. It's wonderful!!

I am so done with summer. It's been so miserably hot this summer that it's just such a relief to have some nice cool days. I always have the blinds closed in my office because the sun beams in so brightly, but for the last two days I've opened up the blinds so I can see the clouds and rain. It's just so nice to have some different weather for a change!

I wouldn't want it to be gray and gloomy every day, but then again, I don't want it bright and sunny every day, either. I like variety in my weather! When I first moved to southern California, it was in the midst of a VERY cold winter in Utah. So when I got to California I would get up each morning, throw open the curtains and say - "Blue skies and sunshine again! Great!" But then it was the same thing every single day. No variety. After 6 months or so, I would get up in the morning, listlessly look out the curtains and say - "Blue skies and sunshine. Again. Great."

That's how I've been feeling about this summer. It's just seemed to go on and on with almost every day the same - bright, hot, not as many afternoon thunderstorms as usual. I am ready for a change in weather! Bring on Fall!

LOL! Yeah, I'd trade you in a second. This summer was awesome in Michigan. Especially since Winter lasted until mid-April, this year and it didn't stop raining almost daily until the end of May. It was a seriously rough Winter. The mere though of Fall and Winter is sending me into a panic. I can't take all that snow and cold and sickness again!

I'm with you on this one. It's been cloudy and rainy the last few days and i actually feel motivated to get housework done. I open the windows, let the breeze in, light a candle and get to work. I feel like decorating for fall! Bring it on...just delay winter a little...or a lot.

Amen! Totally agree. Bring on Fall!
