Oh, Georgia

Notice of absence from HannahElisabeth
Taking a long overdue mental health vacation. I will check in when I can.


Not so patiently

For fall to come,

She teases me

With days of cool and gentle breeze

Then stifling humidity

Hinting soon of changing leaves,

The masterpiece

That Autumn brings

Oh, Georgia

Never can decide

If she should rain, or should she shine

More oft than not, tis both at once 

Oh, Georgia

Do make up your mind

    Rain and shine equals rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ well that's a pretty nice thought right? LoL love your humour and wit it shines in this, ps it's good to know Georgia offers more than just a midnight train. Hug ๐Ÿค— ๐ŸŒน

    • HannahElisabeth

      I do love the rain, and the rainbows that come with it. Just not so much when the forecast says clear and I keep forgetting to bring an umbrella after all this time ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'd totally be dancing in the rain if it weren't for my phone and other things that would get ruined when it decides to pour lol

    • Saxon Crow

      It always seems that Georgia's on your mind haha. Bring in autumn I quite agree

      • HannahElisabeth

        My friend wrote me an adorable poem for my birthday and made clever use of the lyrics to that song, I suppose it was on my mind when I wrote this haha

        I thought it was the Brits who had the wonky weather, but I bet they don't have it as unpredictable as Sydney.... Where is this Georgia joint anyway.............?
        Enjoyed the write, going to change the names.......

        • HannahElisabeth

          Seems you all are not alone in that boat, this year has been especially strange here, season-wise.

          Since so many people from the suburbs here love to say they're from Atlanta just because it sounds "cool", I'm just gonna say that I live close enough. I'm glad you enjoyed my sillier side.

          P.S. I hope you don't mind, I referred to you as a friend upon posting what "Wishes" should have been on another site ๐Ÿ˜Š

          • Doggerel Dave

            I'm heartbroken - wot am I if not a friend, Hannah... Hannah... Hannah... You will have to subscribe to the Sydney Morning Herald in order to read my obituary......

            Never been but so many films have brough us Georgia both sweltering and wet. You took me to scraps of film stock in my mind to create my minds eye version and it was sultry, damp air with cool cool people.

            • HannahElisabeth

              Oh that definitely is true, the scenery is beautiful in the spring and fall. I love the summers here too, as long as there is a lake or pool near by!

              I'm currently reading, a walk in the woods by bill bryson
              (try it out and gift yourself a laugh)...
              'and Georgia
              ain't got nothing on our dear Blighty's tempestuous weather, nothing I say!' lol

              • HannahElisabeth

                I looked it up, that certainly sounds like a great read prior to trying to hike the Appalachian Trail! Having lived in GA most of my life, all I can say is summer and winter and visits to the city do not go well together lol

                Firstly.Augusta,Geogia.I always think of The Masters Golf tournament,in the Spring.Glued to my TV to watch that,here in the UK.
                Of course the US is so large,that I can imagine the weather variants being extreme within a hundred mile radius.My partner Janet lived and worked in America for many years,San Antonio,Chicago,and New York.
                I did not know her then,but she sometimes tells me stories of many weather variations,due to the changing seasons.
                Although,she has also lived and worked in St Petersburg,and Moscow,and they are both breathtaking in autumn.But cold.๐Ÿฅถ

                • HannahElisabeth

                  Augusta is quite a hike from me! As much as I complain about our weather here, I don't think I could go anywhere too much colder. Although some decent snow would be nice. We had such lovely snow on the beach while living in Wilmington, NC whereas here, it's just nasty sleet that makes people forget how to drive ๐Ÿ˜‚

                  I see you have posted an absence notice, but I had to comment anyways. I love this one. I live in Georgia (since April 2000) and I have given up on trying to figure out the crazy Georgia weather. Someone gave me a list of โ€œGeorgiaโ€™s 12 Seasonsโ€ which I will share below ๐Ÿ˜‚
                  1. Winter
                  2. Foolโ€™s spring
                  3. Second winter
                  4. Spring of deception
                  5. Third winter
                  6. The pollening
                  7. Spring
                  8. Summer
                  9. Hellโ€™s front porch
                  10. False fall
                  11. Second summer
                  12. Fall

                  I think thatโ€™s fairly accurate ๐Ÿ‘

                  • HannahElisabeth

                    This had me absolutely dying, I've never seen something more hilariously accurate! I've been living back in Georgia since 2008; you know it's time to stock up on allergy medication when we hit Third Winter in preparation for the pollening ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

                    Thank you for sharing and happy second summer; I'm STILL waiting for actual fall haha

                    My Mom's name was Georgina,and she loved that song Georgia on my mind,..she loved the thought of it being sung to her,..about her. Although she new otherwise. And you know what they say about the weather up here in Canada? If you don't like it,wait 15 minutes,lol. At certain times of the year,we can see all 4 seasons in one day,.lol Another well penned write H.E. Thanks again for sharing๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ•Š
