Seasonal Friday Five

1. What is your favorite time of year?
In New England, it's Fall. The colors are so riotous, so vibrant. Followed closely by a SNOWY winter. If winter doesn't have snow, I'd rather have any other time of year. Including August in the Northeast, when the humidity makes the world seem like you're swimming in hot soup as you walk down the street.

2. What is it about your favorite season that, well, makes it your favorite season?
Oops, answered that above. Cheryl Wheeler has a wonderful song that sums up everything about why New England is hella cool in Autumn.

3. What is your least favorite time of year? Why?
Winter without snow. Summer with no cool breeze. Fall when hurricanes come and strip leaves off the trees before they change color. Dry Springs. Hmm...that wasn't one time...

4. Do you do anything to celebrate or recognize the changing of seasons?
Not a sausage. Since it snowed on the first day of Spring here in New England, we don't tend to mark those days as important. At least not on "official" days.

5. What's your favorite thing to do outside?
Swimming. In the ocean preferred, though I haven't done that in years. Walking on the beach off-season is a blast. Lou and I are going to the Cape for a quick jaunt this weekend (see, I answered the unasked question!), but with it being hella windy, it's not likely he'll get me onto the National Seashore. I don't like wind when it's cold out.
