Forrest Gump said it best, "Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you're gonna get." That quote also applies to the weather this time of year in upstate NY.

Crisp fall mornings in the 40s are my favorite. I love to sip coffee (not pumpkin spice) on my front porch with my Newfoundland dog, Gracie. We sit, watching the leaves fall and the squirrels gathering nuts for the coming winter. I'm usually wearing some kind of flannel shirt....also my favorite. I'm in fall mode. I'm ready for Halloween, Thanksgiving, hanging out by the fire pit and doing all the typical fall activities.

Here's the problem though. You have that kinda morning on a Tuesday and by this Saturday you're ready to break out the swim trunks again.

"It’s starting to feel like fall on these sub-50-degree mornings, but summer has at least one more weekend up its sleeve." --

Make up your mind!

I'm sure most people are excited to have another summer-like weekend, but for me it just pulls me out of fall mode.

Oh well, I'll play along and maybe hit Lake George on Saturday with the family....and then back to flannel next week!
