The heat or hot churros?

Do churros and chocolate make up for the passing of the summer?

Do churros and chocolate make up for the passing of the summer?

At 3 a.m. last night I realized the season is changing. Gone is the overnight heat of the summer, and in the middle of the night I was on my feet rummaging through my cupboard looking for my duvet.

The coolness of the night was sufficient to wake me, and in order to sleep for the rest of the night I was going to need something more substantial than one of  the thin sheets I had been using since March. Where on earth did the summer go? Ok, I know its not exactly cold yet;  the day time temperatures are still enough to burn in if you stretch out for too long, which I sometimes do on my terrace. But none of this is enough to stop me feeling that summer, once again, has come and gone too soon. Honestly, summer lasts six months straight here, so its a long time to just slip away in what feels like just a few weeks.

I don´t feel like I went to the beach enough, swam in the sea enough……..I want my summer again! I´m not sure if I want to look forward to the autumn yet, and the wearing of long sleeves and shoes. I´m still attached to my skirts and sandals, and I want it to stay that way for a while longer. My sandals especially, as they have now worn in to a slipper type comfort.

Also the days are getting shorter; I have barely finished my evening meal when the darkness descends. I absolutely love the long light evenings of the summer, and sitting in the square eating ice cream at  midnight……oh well, I must try to work up a more positive attitude towards this changing of the season, and I must admit cooler weather does come with some perks. I lurve my cold-morning pleasure of munching my way through a small mountain of churros, dipping each one in a steaming mug of hot chocolate before putting it in my mouth; maybe, just maybe, putting the duvet on my bed is the price I have to pay for that wonderful pleasure….

Enjoy your day everyone,

    With each word, I feel like I am there with you! I even felt the need to get my comforter too.
