For once I’m writing a post in advanced! I felt like I should get it down today because I’ll most likely forget what I wanted to say by morning.
So it’s fall in the northern hemisphere. Also known as Autumn depending on who you ask. That means several things:
- Trees shedding leaves
- Pumpkin everything
- Cooler weather
Going in that order, first, I hate that the trees shed their leaves. I LOVE the color changes. They are very beautiful but I HATE raking. When you switch from living in an apartment, where you weren’t responsible for yard work, to living in a house with FOUR (kill me) ginormous oaks and whatever that tree is that drops the helicopter seeds, you truly begin to hate Fall. We’ll have dead leaves in our yard from now until Spring, no joke. All the trees (of course) are not on the same nature clock and drop their leaves at all different times. (That would make our life way too easy eh?)
Second, pumpkin everything and I mean everything. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE pumpkin rolls and those little pumpkin shaped candy corns and even pumpkin pie but the problem with me is that everything is pumpkin themed from August til Christmas. I see pumpkins EVERYWHERE and I’m already over seeing or hearing about 15 thousand advertisements about pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks. There’s more to Autumn than pumpkins people!
Third, it’s supposed to be COOLER weather not HOTTER weather. I just about died when I walked outside today because it’s 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius) in Ohio right now. Why the hell is it so hot in September??? If it keeps up at this rate, we won’t have trick or treaters at our door because they’ll get heat stroke from wearing their costumes walking 2 blocks. Maybe pass out water bottles instead of candy? It would be slightly more healthier…. (Heat makes me crazy can you tell?)
There is just one thing though that I ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY look forward to about Fall:
FALL TV SHOWS!!!!
Can I just tell you how excited I am about Grey’s Anatomy returning THIS THURSDAY?? Yes, you heard me right. And it’s a 2 hour season premiere! I was one of those people that watched ER back in the day and adored that show and didn’t think any hospital show could ever replace it. I literally refused to watch any of Grey’s Anatomy for about 6 seasons I think because I was so anti-any other hospital type drama.
But then Netflix (my second obsession besides books) came along.
And then you get bored one day and decide to start a long show that you could do while multitasking while cleaning or background noise while reading and you think to yourself, “Cool, i don’t really have to pay that much attention. I can focus on my tasks, etc.” Except…..
I GOT SO HOOKED!
I mean my God. This is one show that hits every point on my emotional spectrum; even the cheesy episodes! And now season 14 (THATS RIGHT! FOURTEEN YEARS!) is about to air and there are only about 4 characters of the original cast who have been there since the beginning and I’m just so, freaking excited! (TWO WHOLE, WONDERFUL PREMIERE HOURS).
There are other fall shows of course and I can make a list but, guys, it’s all about Grey’s Anatomy sorry.
(P.S. I’m also looking forward to Scandal since this is the final season. Just wanted to throw that out there.)
What are your thoughts about the fall season? Anything you look forward to or don’t look forward to that I didn’t mention? Let me know in the comments below!
