  1. yeah it is getting pretty chilly in Chicago – however it is going to get way worse. Not looking forward to that, so I can appreciate some thick socks to wear. Sometimes I even double up it -yep it totally gets that cold here.

  2. Hi there,

    I would like to point out the cultural offensiveness of the term you used to describe an extended summer. It is enough of a problem to me that I will no longer follow your posts, and I encourage you to consider more carefully the appropriateness of such colloquialisms in the future.

    Sincerely,
    Suzanne.

    • hi suzanne,

      i’m very sorry to have offended you, but indian summer refers to a period of warm weather in late autumn or early winter that we experience here in san francisco september through october. nothing more. i don’t believe that to be an offensive term.

      “spell of warm weather after the first frost,” first recorded 1778, American English, perhaps so called because it was first noted in regions inhabited by Indians, or because the Indians first described it to the Europeans. No evidence connects it with the color of fall leaves or a season of Indian attacks on settlements. It is the American version of British All-Hallows summer, French été de la Saint-Martin (feast day Nov. 11), etc. Also colloquial was St. Luke’s summer (or little summer), period of warm weather occurring about St. Luke’s day (Oct. 18).”

      again – i think of it in very fond terms, and have googled it and it does not seem to be deemed offensive. all the best,
      victoria

  3. I think the change must have happened about the day arrived – week ago Monday (10/21). The forecast had predicted warmer weather, and all the locals were saying “it was warmer yesterday!” Sorry if I had anything to do with it. I meant to bring nothing but sunshine!

  4. Lovely picks! It is getting chillier here in LA and I am actually wearing flannel today! I was way too excited. Can’t wait until it’s full-fledged sweater weather down here!
