Whether we like it or not, winter is on it’s way. But there is still plenty of time to enjoy fall first! This week on the Romance Writers Weekly Blog Hop, J.J. Devine asks:
What is your favorite fall activity?
If you joined me from Leslie Hachtel, welcome!
We had a hot and smoky summer here in Northern BC, with forest fires burning all around our province. So the wet September we had was actually quite welcome. That being said, I am glad the overcast skies are gone and crisp, clear blue fall is here.
If winter didn’t come after fall, I think it might be my favourite season. Spring in Northern BC is often muddy and ugly and depressing, what with melting snow leaving piles of gravel and garbage behind. But despite the shorter days of fall, we are usually blessed with bright sunshine and invigorating temperatures. Walking the dog is no longer a leisurely stroll, but a heart-pumping activity. Yet there is so much to see in the changing colour of the foliage, and once the leaves are gone our regular walks reveal vistas hidden during the greenery of summer.
I also enjoy curling up with a good book and steaming cup of coffee on Sunday mornings in November. For example, this past Sunday, frost glittered on the roofs and lawns, and steam rose from furnace chimneys. It was wonderful to sit all cozy and warm with my dog at my side and simply relax.
How about you? What’s your favourite activity during this season? I’d love to hear from you! Drop me a line in the comments and I’ll be sure to reply!
