The best parts of each season….#MFRWauthors

I live in New England where in Autumn, there is no prettier place to be, so this topic may be a little skewered to the FALL for me!!

Let’s start with SPRING since by definition, this is the start of it all ( even tho the calendar says Jan.1 is!!)

For me, the best part of spring is the sense of ANTICIPATION I get. Flowers are starting to peek up from grass that is finally turning green. Daylight doesn’t disappear at four p.m. We shed our protective outerwear and begin to make plans for all the holidays to come – Memorial Day, The fourth of July, Labor day.


With SUMMER, I turn LAZY.

Mostly because I don’t like to sweat and the heat makes me clammy, so I tend to just not move much, hence, lazy. But….the days are longer and filled with …more. More of everything. More sunshine, more flowers, more ice cream, more vegetables growing in gardens, more reasons to relax.

AUTUMN, as I’ve said, is my favorite season.

Even though this is a season where things begin to wind down, I have to tell you the best part of this season is that I tend to RE-ENERGIZE during these months. When the leaves change and turn colors, I tend to clean out all the clutter from my house and life. I know I should be doing this in the spring ( they don’t call it spring cleaning for nothing!) but in the Fall, when I spend more time in the house and not outside in the heat, I fill the time with reorganizing, restructuring, and culling from my life, be it clothes that no longer fit, books I’ve read that need to be donated to the Library, or rearranging the furniture to satisfy my inner feng shui.

In Winter I turn to PLANNING mode. Since I hibernate, it seems like the best time to do this.

All the books I need to write for the next year; all the changes I need to make in my life in order to be a better person; all the things I need to do for the rest of the year that will lead to my happiness.

SO…what? You thought I’d write that the best part of winter is Christmas, gardening in Spring, picnicking in Summer, and apple picking in Fall? Well, duh! Of course those things are good. But for me, it’s not about the things, it’s about the feelings. Romance writer, remember? HeeHee

…and I’m sure my fellow #MFRWA authors have totally different takes on the best part of the seasons, so stop by their blogs and read all about it!

    It is, Maureen, but you grew up in Pennsylvania – so you know!!!


  3. I was just in Maine last week and was sad to miss the fall colors (although I saw some in Nova Scotia on our cruise). I can see why you love the fall there!

    I love autumn too, although I don’t do my “spring” cleaning then. That’s when I have my planning session, probably because I’m a September baby, so that’s when my internal calendar year changes. Enjoyed your list.

  6. My wife loves New England and eastern Canada in the fall. I don’t think she’s too crazy about the weather back there the rest of the year, though.


  7. I’m in CT. Weather has always been wonky but now it’s insane. Still, the leaves in autumn…sigh.
    Enjoyed your post.


  8. I’ve never been to New England. It’s been my dream to visit during the fall.


  9. I always get a little ‘irked’ by New England being the Best in Show for fall color (LOL) Nuh-uh! 😉 Thanks for sharing, Peggy!


  10. I never seem to get to my spring cleaning, no matter the season! Pretty soon I’m going to need some shovels, LOL!
