Welp. September is almost here.

Fall. Leaves changing color. Cooler weather.

This year is just flying by, isn't it?

It's in the 80's here right up til Halloween anymore, thanks to global warming. Last year we had green leaves still on the trees til November, which was unheard of when I was a child.

September is just August II.

I can't tell if r5 is serious or is just being a cunt. Little on earth is worse than pumpkin spice. Devoting months to it instead of ten minutes after eating Thanksgiving dinner is a crime against humanity. I avoid Starbucks and Trader Joe's during this season, and frankly, every other season as well.

Thank God. The humidity can't dissipate fast enough. I always travel in the fall because it's the best time--mild weather, most of the country has little rain, no crowds, no screaming kids.

Fall is the death of summer and it makes me sad. It gets dark at 8 pm now and is noticeably darker at 6:30 when I finish up with work.

I think we’re going to have an early fall. Some leaves are already turning and the yellow jackets are being stupid already, usually don’t see this kind of frenzy until October.

Quote from OP: "This year is just flying by, isn't it?"

Yes it is and the anxiety and subdued terror of what is happening to our country continues without relief. I do hope you all are dealing with it much better than I am. It affects us all and we all cope in various ways. For people like myself who have always been "worries", it has been mentally devastating. My mother worried about everything. I always told myself I would never do that, yet here I am. I am not sure if it is a learned behavior or hereditary. Either way it truly sucks, 😆. If I only had zannies! Anyone know how I can do that? 😇

by Anonymousreply 48August 31, 2021 10:21 PM

R48- That should be worrier. Fall has always been my favorite time of year. Almost spiritual. The relief from the heat is so welcomed. It is the only season I really love and look forward to. Pumpkins! 🎃

I've never felt so alienated in my life. My mother is (newly and finally) out of my life (by my choice) and the rest of my family has pretty much ostracized me as a result. I have very few friends left and my birthday falls in September. I am increasingly thinking about how meaningless my life feels and how few people would care if I was gone. I just don't know how to feel better.

That means long cool nighttime walks and time to myself to enjoy the weather and fresh air.

September is usually ghastly here. It's when summer kicks into high gear and it seems to go on forever. Sometimes it stretches into Oct. I like when Nov arrives, then the holiday season from Nov-Jan is my favorite part of the year. I put up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving and it stays up until Feb 1. Although last year it stayed up all year. I put it up in Nov 2019 and took it down for about 2 weeks in Feb 2020. Then back up it went due to the pandemic and stayed up until March 2020. I needed something that gave me little moments of happy and coziness during all the chaos.

What sucks is Norway is cold half the year. We can expect electricity bills 3 to 4 times more expensive than usual this winter. Can't wait!
