Leaves are falling!

Well...I think it's pretty much officially fall. I know, I know, the "day" hasn't passed yet, but tonight, walking to my car after watching Survivor with Lana, it was pretty obvious that the season is changing. The air was cool, even with my sweater on, the pavement still wet from the intense rain today, and I had to turn on the heaters in my for me, one to defog my window!

In some ways, I'm ready for it, this new season...I love autumn - leaves changing, crisp air, sweaters - but oddly enough, being in Costa Rica for the summer made me feel like I missed summer. I know exactly what you're all thinking right now...but honestly, it was rainy season, so it rained almost every day, and where I lived was cold sometimes (often I was wearing jeans and a long-sleeved shirt), and the sun went down every night around 5:30/6ish...Mind you...I'm not complaining, cause let's honestly think about this folks...I was in Costa Rica!

Another reason I know fall is here? Other than these reasons, and the fact that all the students are back in school? The big MCC sale is this weekend...and all of Abbotsford will be at the Tradex center, watching the auction, eating borscht, and buying plants and old books for quarters. I will definitely be between shifts at the Ramada, welcoming fall!


  1. Hey! Man, I would love to catch up with you soon. I seem to always miss you when you're back at home on the island - we'll have to figure a visit out sometime:) Jen

  2. totally know the feeling... it's so surreal to come back after having missed an entire season of life, it throws me off all the time. I guess that's what happens when my life is divided up into four month segments!
    Enjoy the MCC sale!

  3. Isn't it funny that the season after summer has two names?? Fall and Autumn...or is there a difference...maybe I'm just dumb...anyways...

  4. Fall: (according to the season of the year that comes after summer and before winter; autumn.

    Autumn: (according to the season between summer and winter; fall. In the Northern Hemisphere it is from the September equinox to the December solstice; in the Southern Hemisphere it is from the March equinox to the June solstice.
