Hello everyone. For the first time in a while I am in love with the current weather of Clarksville. Finally feels like Fall. When I was child I would count down the days during the school year so I could have a summer vacation at home free of homework and tests that seemed like hell on earth at the time. But now as an adult working like a Hebrew slave, I appreciate the Autumn season just a little more.
Walking to my car on a blazing summer day, with the sun beating on my skin after a shift of running back and forth one floor to the next, with a cart loaded with food, is like eating jalapeños with hotsauce. I think we can all agree that it is ridiculous to have sweat gleaming on your forehead just by walking outside for less than two minutes.
This afternoon, walking outside in God’s cooling system was such a good feeling. At home, I was blessed to sit out on my balcony in my chair, with a good book in my hands – Crazy Rich Asians- wearing a jacket, letting the breeze kiss my forehead and cheeks as I read. The only reason I went back inside as soon as I did(20 minutes) was because the little neighborhood kids were ruining the groove with their profanity. Ten bucks says these little ones(goodness I sound old) don’t even know what half of these words even mean. God help us.
I have yet to see the leaves morph from green to gold; red; and brown, but I’m patiently waiting. The trees may go barren during this time, but the color change is always a beautiful sight.
Farewell Clarksville heat, tryin’ so desperately to be like the Sahara Desert. Welcome to you Cool Clarkville.
