This is sort of how I feel, too. Although, part of the basis for my feeling this way is that we live in an area that's extremely hot and humid in the summer and our 1880 house isn't air-conditioned. We rely on lots of ceiling and box fans and as many doors and windows that will open.
I've always been more of a cold weather girl. I loved living in northern Minnesota near the Canadian border. I thrived there. Some people don't understand. I've always felt that I can put on enough clothes to get warm but haven't yet been able to take enough off to get comfortably cool...that is, legally.
I particularly enjoy fall because I'm able to cook wonderful soups and stews and all those yummy cold weather dishes.
I also like the fall and winter because I can dress my bed in our goose down comforters and flannel sheets. I love sinking down in all that cozy bed stuff.
And I love to watch the leaves turn and see them dancing on the sidewalks and in our yard. Our outside kitties have a great time chasing them.
The only real negative to fall for me is that there's so little daylight. My husband and I relish sitting out on our big front porch in the evenings with a drink. That'll come to an end when it gets too cold and dark to do it. I'll miss that and the kitties will, too. They enjoy sitting with us.
But, by the time fall and winter are about to end, I'm ready for spring. And, isn't it nice, by then spring usually is only a couple of weeks or days away. Time certainly flies.
