It’s well and truly autumn here in Delaware. It’s a bit chillier every day and the leaves have turned and the prettiest trees in the neighborhood (none of which are ours) are past their peak. I’ve been having a hard time getting up in the mornings; this extended daylight savings time nonsense is wreaking havoc on my wake/sleep cycle–I’m very much looking forward to turning the clocks back this weekend. It’ll be darker earlier in the evenings, but more importantly I won’t be driving to work while the sun’s coming up. I really don’t like getting up in the dark.
I do enjoy the slow winding down of the year, though. Autumn has always been my favorite season even though it’s also an emotionally difficult one for me. There’s just something about this time of year that speaks to me.
