So it’s True, Summer is Over.

I know, just a couple of posts back and I said I couldn’t wait for colder weather so that I could wear tights. As it turns out my vanity and excitement to play-dress up are outweighed by my aversion to freezing temperatures and ironically, being forced to cover up. These past few weeks have been crazy, weather-wise: one week temperatures were well into the high 30s and I complained about it, until the very next week when they dropped into the lower 10s, and I vowed to never complain about heat again [Insert: “Never say never”]. God, Mother-Nature and Father-Time, heard my prayers and temps have pleasantly been in the mid-twenties. Still, I’ve been in a great deal of denial about the weather, until the trees began to turn color. I guess even the extreme temps bring with them good things – autumn brings rust-colored everything. Rust, gold and red. Makes me think of cinnamon, cuddly sweaters and the smell of rain on parched earth. Warmest of combinations, if you ask me.

That said, I have been meaning to make an ode to the sun, and finally got round to doing so. Here are images from what was my summer break.
