Can You Smell It?

It's just right around the corner. I can feel the eyes of autumn on my back.

I am sooooooooooo damn excited it's almost here.

For the past couple of mornings, it's been a bit chilly in the morning when I've left the house at 5:30 to go to work.

The dogs are feeling it, too. They're friskier and just want to play all day. They're eating more and drinking less.

I came into work this morning and put my iPod on and "Black Cat" by Janet Jackson was the first song to come up on shuffle.

Granted, that doesn't mean much to you, but I can remember listening to this song over and over and over again when hanging out the in park in Florida after school. Usually when it was a bit chilly.

Everything smells sharper and looks brighter.

I feel like Lorelei Gilmore in "The Gilmore Girls" in that episode in season 1 when she opens her window and smells snow. I can smell the seasons when they're coming but the one that I can smell the most is autumn and I don't know why. It's just a crisp, sharp smell in the air and it gives me good chills.

It's right around the corner, y'all, and I couldn't be happier.

Can you smell it?

Oh, I can smell it and I'm loving it! Fall is absolutely my fav season and I can't wait!


Ohhhhhhhhh but I do! And though I am not looking forward to cold weather and dry skin again, it is always nice to change seasons. Reminds you that life does go on and there is change every day!


I love fall. That hint of crispness in the air. Wearing long sleeves to cover up my arms. But here? Can't smell it yet. I just smell the rain and the humidity and the fine crop of mushrooms I have growing on my lawn.


Love the Fall; hate what comes after it :(

I love love love fall. My fave season. I think we are finally past the Texas summer heat. It's after 12n and we are only at 78! Yipeeeeee!

Captain Dumbass

I love Autumn. And Lorilei Gilmore.

I know EXACTLY what you are talking about... Fall is my favorite, and I can always smell it coming on those first few chilly days! Yay for fall :)


I love fall and the smell of rain...


Fall is my favorite season and I can't wait for it either. I haven't been able to smell it yet though. :(


I cannot wait for fall to officially get here. It's been cooler here the last few days... and low humidity. I've been able to keep the A/C off and just leave all the windows open! Heavenly!


But I wasn't done with summer??!!

Trooper Thorn

And college football!!! Of course in Canada, I can only watch select games because the federal government will not allow ESPN to broadcast. Bastards!


I wish I could smell the seasons...unfortunately the only seasons I see here are the wet and the hot seasons...I really need to move!

Together We Save

I do love autumn. I am so glad you pointed out your dogs are acting different. I have not been able to figure out what is going on with my sweet baby.


I can almost smell it. I LOVE the fall, it's my favorite time of year.

Wonderful post!
I've missed you.

The Stiletto Mom

I've never been so happy to sneeze, it means change is in the air. Fall cannot get here fast enough for me!!!


That is one of the greatest smells of all.


That is one of the greatest smells of all.

Momo Fali

I HATE fall, but only because I REALLY HATE winter and when fall gets here I know winter is close.


I miss the Gilmore Girls. I want to be a cool mom like Lorelei. We almost named our Little Princess that! I bet you are Lorelei in the flesh, girl. All the way! Even more than you are Rizzo! :)


I can't quite smell it yet here in Chicagoland, but I've been feeling it for weeks now. I hope we have one last burst of warmth [even though the pool's now closed :-( ] before we hit fall.

I do love the smell of fall, though. Now I'm looking forward to it even more


ME TOO!!!! Can't wait for fall and the cooler weather and the rain and OH... Just about everything
