Changing colors,dropping temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes: do these mainstays of Fall fill your heart with warmth–or with dread?
Colorful leaves, pumpkin pies, spice lattes, reminds me of Fall and then the dreaded winter.
Winter for me spoils the fun of Fall, it’s visit gives me images of snow, short days, howling winds and blizzard. It feels like I haven’t recuperated from the chilly winters, icy driveways and streets of last winter and it’s back again, a time of the year which brings memories of the difficult time we had clearing our driveways and soon after blocked by the plow to clear the streets and sidewalks.
I’m afraid Fall does not please me, it evokes the memory of winter! 😦
You receive a gift that is bittersweet and makes you nostalgic.What is it?
To me gifts are special,I received gifts from a variety of people. The ones I cherished most are those given to me by the kids I taught.
I found boys were quite thoughtful, one of the gifts I received was a bracelet from one of my students. I remember he brought it to my desk and waited to see my reaction. “It’s beautiful”, I said, “thank you.”
Kids are very thoughtful they have their own way of finding out their teacher’s likes and dislikes.Once I was asked by one of the boys, “What’s your favorite hockey team?”
I replied, “My favorite team is the Boston Bruins” he was a bit disappointed.
“But Miss they are not a Canadian team”, he said!
I told him, “it does not matter, most of the players are Canadian on that team.”
I guess he was relieved to hear my answer. One day he walked over to my desk and gave me a pin of the Boston Bruin goalie. I was impressed.
All I could say was, “Thank you”,it seemed he didn’t hold a grudge against me for liking the ‘The Boston Bruin Hockey Team.”
