Leaves are Falling, Right?

It's Fall in Southern California....

Children head off for school in long sleeved shirts and flip flops. 

Housekeeping is done with all the windows open in the morning to let in the crisp, fresh air and closed up in the afternoon before the heat comes rolling in. 

Pumpkin, Ginger Spice and Apple Cider Candles are lit and their cozy aromas fill the home in place of baking because it's just too hot to turn the oven on. 

You can shop for a coat and a swimsuit in the same store, usually on racks next to one another. 

Facebook posts from friends complaining about the wind and falling leaves are "liked" with just a little bit of jealousy...but it's okay because orange, red and yellow maple leaves can be purchased at the grocery store: two bundles for six dollars. 

It rains for two days and it's called a Storm. News logos are created. Stories are exchanged of BBQ's being rained out. 

Red Starbuks Cups with steaming and delicious drinks are enjoyed with the air conditioning in the car at full blast. 

I have decided to assemble an "At Least It's Fall on My Playlist" Playlist and it includes selections from Eva Cassidy ("Autumn Leaves") and Kate Davis ("September in the Rain.")
What else should I include?


  1. Weekend in New England, by Barry Manilow?
    Not much, but in the bridge it does reference the change coming and the wind blowing.
    And it's better than November Rain by Guns n Roses.
    That's all I've got.

  2. Anything by George Winston....he may even have an album called "autumn" I love him.
