Fall has Arrived Time to Get Out the Warm Socks

Well, it is feeling like fall here. I saw steam rising in the morning air off of our pool. It is so cold that I have gotten out my socks. I mean the gold toe full-size socks, no low socks inside my Converse. I even put on a sweater this morning, it was colder in the house even than outside and I refuse to turn on the heat in September. It actually feels good to wear long pants and a long sleeve shirt. It has been a while. Pretty soon I will have back my straighter winter hair, I can't wait. How is the weather in your neck of the woods?

@desitunes I haven't noticed a difference in my hair structure according to humidity.

@FayeHazel Same here! My hair don't stay straight due to humidity and moisture in the air. They get bit frizzy and difficult to manage during sudden weather change..

Mine does that too, it may be because there is less humidity in the air - the humidity makes my hair curl more.

I find that when my feet are warm, the rest of me also feels warmer.

I never had hot flashes so that didn't help me and I was more like 55 when I went into menopause.

I love fall! It is my favorite season! But we are not there yet. I live in the SF Bay area and we are in the middle of a heat wave--at 91 degrees yesterday--so your post makes me long for fall all the more!

@BelleStarr We are having the first moisture of the season today although there isn't enough to really call it rain

It's pretty cool here as well, it's 57 here right now at 7:20 am which is already too cool for me for this time of year. Look like I'd better buy some socks, I don't have any but I'm thinkin I'll buy some cuz I might just want to keep my feet a bit warmer.

Its cold here. Yesterday I ran to the Y for water aerobics and was in my cut offs and a jacket. I wished I'd put long pants on but I've been painting like a wild woman. (cut offs don't care if they get paint on them) Delivering again today to Niagara On The Lake. Thankfully, the tourist season should end shortly , then I'll have time to play with my myLot friends... We have a electric fireplace (low electricity use), and it was on yesterday in our family room....

We have an electric heater on here tonight at the cottage to take the chill off the air, I don't want to turn on the propane furnace yet.

Jacket weather here. I wore socks for the first time yesterday. I have a long sleeve shirt on today. A bit nippy out there and the breeze is blowing the trees. Looks like rain. I'm not putting the heat on yet either. Though I will need to put the cover on the A/C.

Every week we feel more like fall. I know that the highs last week are not what we can expect for daytime highs here. And we're going to be in store for a fair bit of rain, yesterday we had some and today is dry, but Wednesday and the next day they are calling for rain again-indicative of autumn.

Lol! I know what you mean by straighter winter hair. I don't seem to have that problem in FL for some reason. It's not quite as cold down here. Perhaps, being closer to the shore helps.
