It's Still August...

-So why have I been waking up cold in the mornings?
-Why am I wearing jeans and a longsleeve shirt today instead of my customary summer outfit of skirt and t-shirt?
-Why have I been drinking cocoa at night?
-Why did I ask Peter last evening, "Should we turn the heat on?"
-Why did I have to bring the floor plant on our patio indoors last night?
-Why have I been wearing my cool-weather pj's to bed?
-Why are my feet cold right now?
-Why am I currently wearing my cozy L.L.Bean fleece jacket, which is usually reserved for crisp fall and spring days and cold winter days?

I guess nobody told Mother Nature this year that it's still August. This is supposed to be the hottest month of the year, but there hasn't been one day that has hit 90 degrees. Some people like that, but I really enjoy the summer warmth. Now we're having a premature fall with cold nights and cold mornings and mild temperatures during the day. While the daytime weather has been very pleasant, I still prefer it warmer. We have months of cold ahead of us, so I'd rather the heat stick around for as long as possible. Maybe it's just a fluke and we'll have a nice warm Indian summer in September and October to make up for it. In the meantime, I'm going to go put some socks on these cold feet of mine...
