I love this time of year but-----I don't know what to wear!

I've said it before, September brings some of the nicest weather around here. We have warm days and cool nights. We can still go to the beach yet sleep at night with the air conditioning off and the windows open.

I like to sleep with the fresh air coming in. The only problem is when the temperature goes down to the low 50s the house can be a little chilly in the morning.

This happened to me the other day. I woke up to a chilly house so I figured it was a day for long pants and not the shorts that I've been living in all summer.

My typical routine is to get up, have coffee, make my list for the day and then, after I get ready, head off for a two-mile walk. Since it was cool I put on jeans, a polo and grabbed a light-weight sweatshirt. As I stepped outside I realized it was warmer outside than it was inside so I left the sweatshirt on the porch. About halfway through my walk I was wishing I had gone with the shorts.

My children had the same issue. They both commute to Bridgewater, sometimes carpooling, and they left for an 8 a.m. class with a hoodie and jeans only to be met with almost 80 degrees after lunch.

It's that time of year: you turn the heater on as you go into work and run the AC when you get out.

When I was doing the morning show I always ended up with a collection of jackets in my office. You would definitely need one at 4 a.m. but when you left at 2 p.m. you'd forget it.

We have yet to put the heat on in the house but I will admit that I watched the Patriots game wrapped up in a nice blanket I keep by the couch. We have a wood stove so we try to make it to November 1st before we turn on the furnace. I will admit that the older I get the more flexible I am with that plan.

I noticed the other day while I was walking how deep blue the sky is and how the trees are still full and green. The breeze feels good even though it won't be long before it's a cold wind off the water.

I did a broadcast last week on the Cape where Dennis-Yarmouth played Barnstable. It was sunny and 68 degrees at kickoff and I made the comment that we'll be wishing for this weather by the middle of November.

I think another reason that I like September so much is that the next month isn't bad either. October always brings the fall color and sunny, crisp afternoons. I'm not really into all the "Pumpkin-spice" craze but I do love a fresh apple pie.

So let's enjoy the weather while we have it. I'm not even going to think about the upcoming cold weather or snow and ice. In fact, the entire month of March may be a good time to visit the kids down south.
