Fall

I feel my mood starting to change now that summer is over and it's the beginning of October. I enjoy Summer, but Fall is my favorite season. The next three months are my favorite months and I can't help but think of growing up in Oklahoma and watching the leaves change colors on the trees and the many Saturdays spent playing soccer in great Fall weather. Unfortunately that isn't exactly the case in Houston. I find myself getting excited for Fall and constantly being disappointed. Today is October 3rd and the high temperature today is supposed to be 92. Ninety-two degrees! Are you kidding me? I thought looking ahead that we were supposed to get a cold front in the next ten days, but I guess I was wrong. A cold front means 89 degrees instead of 92. Excuse me for my Grandpa moment, but I remember when I was 13 and it snowed on October 30th in Oklahoma. Obviously that's not a common occurrence or anything, but man that was nice. I'm not saying I necessarily enjoy lots of snow. In fact that's something I like about Houston. It eventually does get cold here but it never snows. I can almost wear shorts year round and I never have to get bundled up to go running. I know that eventually it will start cooling down and I'll get those cooler temps, but it's just hard waiting for that first cold front to roll through. So for now I'll look on the bright side. And the bright side is, it's not 100 degrees everyday(apologies go out to my family in Dubai).

T - just for the record. The high today on the good old car thermometer in Dubai was 40. Centigrade. Yes kids - that is 104 Fahrenheit......

Fall is my favorite season too. I was just thinking the other day how fun Fall was in Bville with the Bruin football games, Saturday soccer games, Halloween stuff, the smell of fire and the cold mornings. Luckily, in France, you get a good taste of Fall. I am even thinking of taking Gab out to a farm today to get a pumpkin for Halloween!

Hopefully you guys will get some colder weather in Italy at Christmas.
