My Favorite Month
This is January. This isn't it. January is probably one of my least favorite months. Cold and snow and the long hangover of the post-holiday period. January sucks.
My favorite month is probably September. It starts to cool off, the leaves start to change, but (at least where I live) it doesn't rain too much and never snows. And Pumpkin Spice Everything doesn't come out until October.
September accords us a chance before winter hits to spend time driving our cars on dry roads, enjoy blue skies and sunshine, and turn off the air conditioner and, until it gets too cool, leave the heat off.
And the holiday madness hasn't hit yet, either.
When I was a kid, September meant back to school. So that wasn't fun. But as an adult, that's no longer an issue.
So, why not May or June? Allergies, mostly. Although after seven years of allergy shots, that's much better.
What's your favorite month?
