Fauxl (faux + fall)

Texas is sometimes given more than four seasons. One extra season is called “fake fall” or “false fall” or “faux fall,” sometimes called “fauxl.”

Texas is back to near-full strength heat-wise. Shame. I liked leaving my desk every so often for the faux-fall chill outside.

School starting and Fall go hand-in-Hand in my mind.
Every Fall we bake and fill our home with candles, pumpkins and love.
Coming from Texas, I was used to kind of a faux Fall.

Really enjoying the need to swelter outside in my hoodie so I don’t freeze to death inside places. I want real Fall, not Fauxl!

Our seasons remind me of that insurance commercial with the fisherman teasing “almost had it”.

The weather is shifting here in West Texas to our “actual” Fall (faux Fall is in September). And we’re still in the swing of it, so it’s 30° in the morning and 70–80° in the afternoons. The sustained temperature change wrecks absolute havoc on my pain management. 2/
