I know summer is over when...
I put away my light yellow flower sprigged robe and start using the soft pink fluffy warm one.
I have to wear slippers in the house, instead of bare feet.
I start to wear socks again
My feet get SO cold at night
Sleeping by an open window is delightfully cool and refreshing
The down comforter comes back in use
The green lawn is dappled with dropped leaves, green hiding underneath red, gold, yellow and brown
The school buses are on the road again
The evening light fades differently in the fall
I want to make soups and stews and provisions for the winter
We service the furnace
I stop watering my outdoor plants
We move from the sunroom to the warm living room for evening talks
I start thinking about taking classes
We start making plans for the holidays - who goes where and when
The rain sounds and smells different in the fall
You can smell the apples and the concord grapes in the air
How do you know that summer is over and fall has begun?
