Now That The Sun Is Headed For Australia

As the weather is very dull and is making me feel rather unproductive, I thought it might be an idea to look at what is coming up in the autumn/winter, to put a positive slant on the grey weather.

University is starting back, and I am so glad for this. These last four months have felt so strange to me, having no essay deadlines to worry about, or any reading that absolutely had to be done. I was living in limbo during my free time and I didn’t enjoy it. Although this year is going to be markedly different to last, with a lot more work to do, harder questions to answer, and more to think about when making notes, I’m looking forward to the challenge.

I have two more works of Austen to go, Mansfield Park and Emma, and have Emma ready to begin as soon as my current reads are finished. Even though I’ve the same number of Charlotte Brontë novels left, Austen’s larger collection makes completing hers more of an achievement. I’m looking longingly at Cecilia and will likely make Frances Burney’s books my next classics mission. I also plan to get through a good few more Harry Potter books.

A winter holiday for my third going-out anniversary (as opposed to wedding anniversary). My boyfriend has organised all and is keeping it under wraps so I don’t know much, but I do feel that, as it’s now far nearer than it was in summer, I can be excited.

What are you looking forward to this season?

Autumn is actually my favorite time of year, though I agree it’s very bittersweet as winter is not far behind. I love crisp apples, cider, the smell of burning leaves, kicking leaves, walking outside on a brilliant blue, somewhat brisk day, football games, hearty soups…

Charlie: I have to agree with your list, especially leaves. It’s the lack of sun that gets me, though mostly it’s that back to school feeling – even though I’m long past school I still remember how it felt. Silly really.

Ooh, a secret anniversary celebration sounds fun! I love fall. I love the way the weather changes, the colored leaves, reading with a big mug of tea, and the fact that I can knit again without broiling under mountains of wool!

Charlie: I forgot knitting! This is the time I actually get round to continuing projects I stopped in spring (it’s not an active decision, I just end up stopping soon after starting).
