Here it is, the ending of summer

and the beginning of fall. 

This time of year always seems to make me feel unsettled… an itch that you can’t quite scratch,

or being hungry, but not being able to find just the right food to quell your hunger…..salty….no, sweet…, crunchy……no, creamy….no.

I want to read, but do I want mystery, romance, adventure……..

I want to get out my sweaters, but it’s not quite cold enough…..

Want to wear my flip-flops, but it’s getting a little too cool…..

In the past few weeks I’ve bought new faux fur boots and some jewel toned tights, but it’s not QUITE right to wear them yet.

That yearning for cold weather, but wanting to hold on to the longer days of summer.  Why can’t we have fall with lots of light….lots and lots of hours of light?

Like I said, unsettled……


  1. Autumn does more than stir fallen leaves it also plays havoc on the hormones in my body but I know what you mean. I can't even settle on what PJs to wear. Some are just too hot and fluffy and others keep me too cool. So I keep two pairs handy just in case I need to change in the middle of the night. I'm not very fond of fog either.

    I've noticed that I have more cloths dragging on my wicker rocker in my bedroom lately. A mixture of long and short clothing for hot and cooler temperatures. JB

  2. Well it's friggen cold enough here to wear a sweater! LOL!
    And something warmer than those green tights! OMG! I LOVE them though!
    What is it about green lately with us Tammy!?
    It has to be just the right shade though!
    Love your post!

  3. I agree, unsettled! I too am confused on what to wear on any given day. Seems I start out with wearing jeans and a long sleeved shirt, then I have to change to capri's and short sleeves. Honestly, what is it? I do love the fall weather though. Just wish it would make up it's mind and stay!

  4. You know, I think it's the same all over the country. I do exactly the same thing as Julia, 2 night shirts, one long sleeve, one sleeveless and change in the night! I also am very unsettled about what I want to do. I hate the early darkness, to me Fall is a sad time of year. In about a month I will be settled down to spending evenings rug hooking, the best hobby of all. Debby in Maine

  5. I just want to wear normal shoes!!! I've got a couple of new "wears" for fall and winter that I'm anxious to debut. Still haven't purchased the tights. Target?
