Autumn, Where are You?
We are having the warmest autumn this year. Some days this week have felt like summer, though the evenings have been ok. The air quality has gotten progressively worse and I miss those clear, crisp fall mornings. I think this is the first time that we have ever gone to go apple picking in shorts and it felt weird to be hot at the apple orchard.
It actually wasn’t too bad. There were more bugs than usual flying around, but it was still pretty fun and there were plenty of apples still in the orchard to be picked.
Here’s what we did not do because of the heat, though: We did not go to the pumpkin patch and pick out pumpkins. We also did not go to the corn maze and sadly, we did not get any apple cider donuts. The lack of donuts was not our fault, though. They were short staffed in the store and had not started making them yet when we were ready to leave.
So, aside from the approximately 200 apples we have hanging out in the living room, we are still waiting for autumn to arrive. How about you?
