Happy Fall y’all. Are you guys as happy as I am with the change of seasons? Something about this year made the summer seem so long. Perhaps because my summer started in March with the close of school. Anyway, it seems with the date change to September 22, the weather participated perfectly. That says a lot because in Louisiana the heat tends to linger into October. For this week, its cool and wet, perfect for long walks and porch time.
With the temperature change comes blankets and socks! The first thing I do each morning is pull on a thick pair of crazy socks, grab a cup of hot tea and a blanket on my way to the porch. Oh, nothing better to wake me up for my day.
Because of the cooler weather, Tully and I can walk anytime we want without the sun beating on us, coaxing us inside. He’s ready to be entertained by all the leaves, puddles, and other creatures scurrying around. We both are enjoying the crisp, pure, smells of fall whether it is the dew or the rain on the breeze. It just fills the air with newness.
Anyone for fall decorations? I love the browns, oranges, reds, and golds. I really wish those were the colors for the entire year! It’s hard for me not to decorate for Thanksgiving in September. Instead, I put a few items out and enjoy the slow addition of pumpkins and leaves and turkeys.
So, what have I left out? Food and drinks. I haven’t started hot chocolate of cider yet but it’s enticing. Tonight, we have a chili event which always welcomes fall. Cornbread, venison, pumpkin, squash, marshmallows….yum, yum.
Welcome to fall. Share about your likes or possibly dislikes of fall.
Happy Autumn Season to you and yours and I love that shared some of these pictures through the email today and I had to comment on that one leaf picture.. I just want others to know , you can be one and do great things, so its ok to be that one leaf because through that one leaf many things grow beneath!! Stay Blessed..
FL doesn’t do fall. However, I used to love going to NW GA in October for the cooler weather, the changing leaves, and my Uncle’s apple orchard! We always brought home apples, and we’d help eat the last turnip greens from the garden, and other veggies.
Oh how wonderful!!! I want to come to your house and follow your routine! Jealous! I love Fall also! It’s a slower time, as the cool weather entices everyone to stop and drink something warm and relax. I have already started to see Fall decorations on people’s front porches when I take an afternoon stroll with the baby. So fun!
