I’m a summer girl. As such, I hate to see summer end. That means (sorry in advance to everyone who loves this season), I kind of hate autumn.
Okay, maybe ‘hate’ is too strong a word. But I definitely dread fall. Maybe it’s because, except in summer, I’m always cold. Maybe it’s because I don’t like it when the big yellow bus comes to take my little loves away. Or maybe I just really dislike the thought of winter. Whatever the reason, for years, I’ve dreaded autumn.
However, this year is a little different. For medical reasons, I’m now homeschooling my son. I don’t have to get up before dawn to see him off. I get to spend every day working with him and enjoying his company. We’re learning things together, and it’s a true joy.
Maybe autumn isn’t so bad.
Maybe I’ll just sit here in my window seat and appreciate the beauty of the season.
PS: Deep down, I guess I'm not really an autumn hater. After all, I've set two books during this season! Check them out: Dream Shade (YA paranormal mystery set during Halloween and discounted 80% this month) and The Sound of Sirens (paranormal mystery set during Thanksgiving and discounted to $0.99 next month).
