GRANA  here;
Here  in  the North east, we look fioward to summer all winter long and to winter, all summer long.
It is typical to hate the season we are in &  to  only remember the best parts  of the seasons gone by.
This recent summer had 10 record breaking heatwave days; in the past, summers  have had 24 record breaking heatwave days;... none-the less, we will look back fondly on this summer all winter,
Right now we are enjoying the gardens so  lovingly  cared for all through the hot  days &  dreading winterr's bitter nose biting cold.
How do you feel as the seasons change?
Are you dreading winter's cold?
Which season is your  favorite?
WHY????????????

GRANA here;
 As a youngster,I enjoyed the hot summer days, wearing shorts & sundresses swimming in lakes, the ocean & pools.
In the winter, I enjoyed building snow forts snowmen/ladies; sledding& wearing snowsuits & fur trimmed parkas.
Now in my Sr years,I prefer  a more stable climate..I can no longer  build snow angels or shovel snow and slipping  on icey wakways is no longerthe fun it once was .
I find pools too crowded  & noisy, shorts & sundresses too revealing( unlady-like)
I tend to find a cool spot where I can sit in foot raised comfort to read one library book after another, in between doing household tasks & chores.Still the change of seasons brings a change of wardrobe( diferent fabrics & colors add interest to laundrydays .
.Menus change too; lighter dishes w/ more produce in the summer  months keep  meal planning exciting for me.
As a child,I would have found today's activities boring but I enjoy the laid back quiet  activities of today , just fine!

I live in the San Francisco Bay area, and we have had a cooler summer this year.  Of course in San Francisco proper they always have a cool summer, in fact usually September and October are the best months in the city.  However, in the East Bay we usually get warmer weather and this year has been "mild" as the weather people put it.  I really miss the warmer weather.  I was raised in Southern California, and maybe that is why.  I do hope we get some more warm weather before Fall and Winter set in.

Ann it is difficult to say for your poll. 
I know I dislike winter.  Actually it is not the winter it is the cold I do not like and I do miss the sunshine.  But the days we have sun when it sparkles off the snow, and the way the frost looks like diamonds in the sun, that is a spectacular sight to behold. 
I think I am at a time where I am thankful for the time where I am at the moment. I know if I complain about the heat, I will be complaining in a few months about the cold.  An in reality complaining does nothing to change the situation. 
I do enjoy each season for what it offers. 
The sad thing is the seasons seem to pass so quickly. 
I guess at this point I thank God for each waking day that he gives be it sun, snow, cold or warm.

I, too, try to be grateful for each day and not wish for a different season or a different circumstance.  Life is uncertain, so live it to the fullest, whatever the season!!

Not really.  I enjoyed having my kids home, but I am glad to be back in a routine again.

OH NIKKI P;
You are so poetic ( describing winter) that I almost look forward to it; The diamond- like sparkle of the snow is lovely but w/ poor snow shoveling  service   where we live;I''m often snowbound , which gets tiresome.I get my fill of winter scenery  from old  CURRIER & IVES pictures
:>)(self portrait)
