I woke up and there was an unmistakable chill in the air.
It's here - Autumn.
I have survived September, trudged my way through the heat of Summer, and have endured most of what this year felt like throwing at me.
And now it's time for the good stuff.
One week now, post "move in" with my roomie. Lynn is doing well and settling in nicely. It is such a blessing to have one of my best friends just a few yards away. Such a tremendous blessing. I think I forgot how important it was to have those good girl friends nearby. I forgot how much I loved my friends in Birmingham. It sort of solidified what I know in my heart to be the truth- our good memories of a place are not so much about the place, but more so about the people there.
I am happy to report I had a wonderful date last night with someone. He and I dated a little a few months ago, but I chose to sort of back off. We had a wonderful dinner and evening. He seems to really be interested in me, however, I am a little gun shy. When I say interested, I mean he was talking dating exclusively and I just don't think I can do it.
I just can't.
Soooo... with that being said, it's nice to at least feel appreciated. Don't we all like that from time to time?
As for activities - wow oh wow - so much going on these days in Macon. There is the big Thriller parade coming up for Halloween. The Music Ambassador program has Speech from Arrested Development performing at a house party in downtown. I saw an off Broadway tribute to ABBA last weekend, and even went to an Oktoberfest festival downtown.
So. Much. To. Do.
I'm looking forward to the leaves finally changing, and the air getting even a little crisper. I want to smell the dead leaves and pumpkin spices. I want to eat a caramel apple and wander down a wooded path. I want to sit by a bon fire and roast some marshmallows.
Autumn is here. So much good stuff.
