I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

Friday letters – the ‘is it autumn?’ edition


Dear Aqua Fit class teacher,  You must think we all ate an awful lot of Hallowe’en goodies – you are still working us very hard!

Dear local library,  I called in earlier this week to return the book I borrowed.  Why do you have a second hand book shop right by the entrance?  All the good I am doing by using the library rather than adding to the books on my bookshelves is being undone!  That’s another three books added to my collection now…

Dear lunch time,  I just can’t get used to lunch meetings starting at 11.30 a.m., and then yesterday I had an invitiation to one that starts at 11 a.m.  I am going to have to start getting up a lot earlier in the morning if I am going to feel that 11 a.m. is lunch time!

Dear darker evenings,  I don’t really like it getting dark so early now, but I must say I am enjoying having lighter mornings again now that the clocks have gone back.

Dear sunset,  This week you haven’t reached the heady heights of last week’s magnificent display. Please see what you can do in the coming days.  Thank you very much in anticipation.

Dear autumn,  It’s November and it’s hard to decide if you have arrived or not.  Palm trees and pine trees, of which there are a lot around here, aren’t really much help.  I did notice some trees this week which seem to be covered in dead leaves without having gone through any kind of gradual colour change.  They just seem to have gone from green to crisp and brown and are starting to fall off.  The majority of the other trees are still green, so maybe they are not deciduous at all, which is what I assumed.

Have a good Friday.

  1. I think that California has a climate similar to parts of the Australian mainland. In Adelaide where I used to live autumn was rather like you describe, except that it is from March to May. March in Adelaide is still really hot and even April can be pretty warm so you don’t experience a proper autumn. Most of the trees are not deciduous, those only grow in the cooler areas in the hills. I was delighted to discover that Tasmania has a proper autumn with leaves turning to yellow, red and gold before falling off. Oaks and maples and other decidious trees grow well here.

  2. Some people evidently doing lunch on British summertime!
    P.s. Thank you for the cheer you bring to Fridays with these

  3. I’m not sure you will notice much difference in the seasons in SoCal. Hope you don’t get affected by the fires reported in California.

  4. What books did you buy at the bookshop? I’m always looking for interesting new books. Perhaps your fitness teacher heard about your extended lunch dates!

Now it's your turn - what would you like to say?
