The Four Seasons
The seasons are typically Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, right?
Now, doesn’t the picture to the right vividly underscore what Autumn should look like? Soul-stirring, beautiful fiery colours. Such amazing colours combined with the fresh, crispiness of the air produce nostalgic feelings and inspire one to curl up under a blanket with a good book drinking a hot cup of chai or chicory tea.
Freezing cold temperatures, thick snow several inches deep, beautiful sunsets…the beauty of all of which one can behold from within one’s home. Lol.
You get my point, right? By the way, I didn’t take the pictures above. They are beautiful though, aren’t they? I found them here – a website where you can download pictures for free.
Autumn in Ohio
I have no idea what an Autumn in Ohio is/should be like. We were just getting introduced to Autumn, when it was callously sent packing by Winter.
Anyhow, the little bit of Autumn we got to enjoy for about 2 weeks can be seen in the pictures below that I did take 😉 . A few precious moments forever captured on screen, thankfully.
Early Winter Snowy Showers
This morning we awoke to this (not too clear, apologies):
Light rain with fairly heavy snow that didn’t stay on the ground due to the rain. Azkarah was thrilled and went outside, briefly, to ‘taste’ the snow.
Winter decided that our first meeting with it should be a snowy shower this morning, dropping temperatures to almost 0°Celsius (32° Fahrenheit). Snow in October, well, that’s the first I’ve heard or seen of it! I hope it’s not here to stay because it’s too freezing cold, way too early in the year to be enjoyed. I hope Autumn comes back!
What’s the weather like where you are? It’s cold in Düsseldorf, Germany, where a family member lives; extremely hot in Accra, Ghana, where other family members are. What’s the weather like where you are?
To end, I have a question that I need an answer to. I could ask Google; that’s what everybody does these days, but I’d rather ask you…. What is the difference between a ‘cup‘ and a ‘mug‘? Would you call the large Ohio drinking vessel (in the picture above) that I shared about in this post, a ‘cup‘ or a ‘mug‘?
