WOD Challenge 09-19-21 Cruising Into Fall

I’m never happy to say goodbye to summer.

Everyone that knows me knows this. So, by Tuesday night we will be cruising into fall with our first ”cold front” that will have our temps on Wednesday only in the 80’s and the lows in the 40’s.

Today, as is our Sunday tradition, we are having dinner for whomever comes to eat it, and saying goodbye to Becky as she is leaving for Spain today. Dave’s brother, Bubba, is in town, so he will also be here, my brother, and I think two of my boys. I was hoping to sneak a last dip in the pool, but unless others will be getting in, I don’t think we will have time.

Instead, we will be inside, waiting on everyone, visiting, eating and probably getting teary-eyed as we bid farewell and safe travels to our free-spirited future daughter-in-law. I will keep calling her that because I have faith she will come back to us and that she and Chris will marry some day! They are just too good a fit, they love each other, and love growing and learning with each other. they will be fine, and I’ll be praying that it all works out that way.

The main irritant of moving into fall is the pumpkin flavored everything. 😤

I mean, I like pumpkin spice and pumpkin pie as well as the next person, but does every damn thing have to taste like it now???

The next thing I’m not crazy about is having to wear clothes…I mean, more clothes. 😛 I am not a cold weather person. But, I know it’s coming, so surrender I must. Cause winter comes next. Please, God, don’t let this winter suck as bad as last. 🙏🙏
