It's just Not Right

It's beautiful, but it's not right. It's almost October. Where are the crispy leaves and bright autumnal mornings? The show-off fall colours giving their last resplendent gasp?

Yes, I did know this was going to happen when we came to this crazy upside-down world. And I am relieved that the days are getting slightly longer and I can wear slightly fewer clothes (current warmth check: ok; feet a bit chilly in 2 pairs of wool socks, but wearing only regular jeans with no tights or knee socks, with one merino t-shirt and one sweater instead of three and two, is maintaining normal body temperature). It has after all been a really long winter.

No matter that our emotional and psychological body clocks scream otherwise, it is most definitely Spring.
