... since we got back from our adventures in Europe. To be honest, it has not been easy for me to settle back into our daily routine after 3 months worth of fun. I think my problem is I love Europe too much, Scotland to be exact.... I love everything about it, even its' gloomy rainy summer days that the locals hate. Unless one has experienced the flaming heat in Houston during the summer, you probably would never understand why I even like the rainy days in Scotland. I would rather be rained in then trapped in by the heat. I miss Scotland. I miss the rain, the wee whining roads in the country, the beach, the rolling hills, the highlands, the sheep and the highland cattle, the castles, the friendly people.... the list will just go on and on. That's how much I love Scotland. =)
There was sign of Fall on the day I left London, a week before I left Scotland. The leaves have started turning red and yellow... that's definitely the sign of Fall approaching. Fall has always been my favourite season. Hmmm.... the beautiful colour of Fall and the cool crisp air, it's simply lovely! But unfortunately, I haven't had a proper Fall since I moved to Houston three years ago. Here in subtropical Houston, Fall is almost non-existence. It only lasted for a couple of weeks, it comes and goes in the blink of an eye, and winter is normally here before there is even Fall foliage. Despite of the short autumn we are getting here, I am still very much looking forward to winter arriving soon! I would rather deal with the cold days in winter than the long hot summer days here in Houston!
