I Jinxed Summer

I was emailing with a friend and happened to mention that, while I’m not looking forward to school starting, I am looking forward to Fall finally getting here. We’ve had some really hot days lately, but it’s the humidity that just kills me. Can’t do a thing with my hair, don’t want to run outside at all, and we’re boxed up in the air conditioning all the time.
Well, I think I totally jinxed summer because it went down to 56° F last night and isn’t supposed to be more than 70° F today with a mix of rain and thunderstorms all day.
It’s not exactly terrible that the weather’s like this. It has a lot of upsides, like being able to open windows and get fresh air. I’m especially happy with lots of blankets on the bed and getting power-snuggled by the bear who shares that bed with me. I think, even in sleep, he can sense when I’m cold and responds by tucking me underneath him from nose to knees. (That’s how I woke up this morning ) Watching TV on the couch last night was nice too, even though I was the one on top and had the fleece blankets.
These things are why I like Fall so much anyway, so I’m not complaining. It’s just really weird how the weather switches around so fast sometimes. I’m betting we’ll be back in the 90s by this time next week, so I’m going to soak this up while it lasts.
