Every Leaf is a Flower

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus


While most of the United States has four individual seasons, Louisiana has chosen to adopt the theory that two mashed-up cuhhhh-razzzzy seasons are all you really need. There's "Oh My Damn - It's so freaking hot that I just may go sit nekkid in the convenience store walk-in beer cooler while sippin' on an 32 oz. Icee " which is normally April through August. (And yes - that was "nekkid", not "naked") And then there's my favorite season "Oh My Damn - I can finally blink without breaking a sweat so bring on the steaming hot Gumbo and let's all sit around a ginormous fire" which takes up the rest of the year.

Its as though everyone is writing Autumn a pretty little love letter on their blogs today, and I won't be any different. "Oh My Damn - I can finally blink without breaking a sweat so bring on the steaming hot Gumbo and let's all sit around a ginormous fire" (or OMDICFBWBASSBOTSHGALASAAGF if you care to call it so) has seemingly come along with the flipping of my calendar and to say I couldn't be happier is a complete understatement.


I feel as though I'm about to burst out of my skin with pure exhilaration. I don't even think I can describe how great a mood I'm in - it's as though nothing can go wrong, and when it does, it simply doesn't matter. I'm marveling how easily my mood is influenced by the weather. Is anyone else like this?? It's like a dash cool air, a smidgen of clear sky, a little bit of sunshine and as Emeril would say BAM! Best mood ever!


It doesn't hurt that things are fall-ing (ooh my did I just attempt a weather pun?) back into place with Gentleman Caller and we've started seeing each other again. =)

I'm here in Southern California, where we are suffering with high temps, high humidity, and run away wild fires. When Autumn shows, I will feel EXACTLY the way you do!

My mood TOTALLY changes with the weather! I try not to let it affect me so much but I'm only human!

Autumn makes me instantly happier. I hate summer and always have. Probably bc I have always lived in the south, where summers are always insanely hot.
