It’s finally fall in Southern California , as it is over most of the rest of the country.
A couple of weekends ago, I sweltered outside all day at the West Hollywood Book Fair--a fun event but the heat exhausted me.
This past weekend, my dogs and I took several fun walks outside in cooler weather. Now, cool weather in L.A. isn’t necessarily as chilly as it is in other parts of the country, but it’s still a lot more comfortable than the heat.
It feels good sitting at my computer without needing the air conditioning on while I write in the middle of the afternoon. I think I get more done that way, too. I’m plotting my next mystery and will soon do a final edit on my Harlequin Nocturne that’s due in a few weeks.
Of course the weather forecasts don’t say that there won’t be further hot weather this season, but I’ll enjoy all I can for now, at least.
When I lived in the east, my favorite time of the year used to be fall, and in some ways it still is even though I don’t usually get to see the leaves change in a gorgeous autumn way.
What’s your favorite time of year?
