You can feel a real change to the weather here in sunny Spain.
Yes, the sky is still a gorgeous blue. Yes, it’s still sunny and warm. But the mornings have that little bit of chill to the air, as do the evenings. I feel almost tempted to wear long trousers in the evenings rather than shorts.
It’s also getting dark noticeably earlier in the evening. Instead of staying light until 9:30, the sun is starting to set at 8:30 or so.
Ah, the end of summer. It is such a nostalgic feeling. I love the heat of summer, but those cooler afternoons means that preserving is not the torture it is on a sultry summer day. (it’s hard to feel motivated to turn on the oven in 40 degree (104 F) weather!)
But I am not ready for autumn, I cry! We had such a horrific winter last year, that I feel I need 6 months of summer to make up for it!
Well, folks, that’s just not going to happen. I can lament the end of summer all I like, but it’s to no avail. The weather will do what it wills, regardless of my wishes – but oh man, I hope we’re lucky enough to have a loooonnngggg autumn!
