Happy Halloween

It's the end of October.  That means there is just 2 months left in 2013.  WHERE did this year go?  I know we say that every year...but really..where did 2013 go?  I guess when you move halfway across the world, time seems to just fly by...but I am not ready for November..or December. 

Moving to Georgia has been quite the change for us.  Today is October 30.  It is 80 degrees outside.  SAY WHAT?  Shorts and Tshirts instead of jackets and sweaters.  Am I wrong to say that I miss real, fall weather?  Yes, we had maybe 2-3 days where it only reached 70 for a high during the day.  Yes, our nights get down into the 50's.  But I want to have the smell of homemade soup filling the house, a fire crackling in the fireplace and cudding under a blanket on the couch.  I should be happy that I haven't had to turn on my furnace or worry about buying firewood yet.  But having spent the last 4 years in Korea where there are 4 beautiful seasons and the leaves changing on the trees in the mountains is just breathtaking...I feel jipped! 

So enjoy your fall weather, slurp your soup (yes, it's okay to slurp!) and cuddle under a blanket watching your favorite movies.
