Boy, talk about a rude awakening! Went to bed Sat. night, temp in the house was 73. Woke up at 5am looking for my summer quilt to pull over me. When I got up at 8, I saw the house temp had dropped to 65!!!
There is no doubt fall is here. Time for flu shots, buying
goodies for the kiddies.
It's also a wonderous time. Summer has left (bringing it's nice temps with it), we've no doubt about that. But the time of change has started. Look at the beautiful colors nature has graced us with this year. They say it's because of the dry summer, I don't care. It's like a whole new world out there.
Makes me wish for my childhood again where you looked for those pile of leaves to jump and play in. There's nothing like the smell of Autumn. It does have a special smell, go out on a nice, cool, sunny day and take a deep breath. There is the smell of the leaves, the mums, the woodfires starting to burn. Jack Frost takes his paint brush to the grass, bushes and pumpkins.
Thanksgiving is next month, comes early this year, on the 22nd. We had planned to go and finally meet our grand daughter that week but my husbands Scrooge like employer has decided that this is a "black out period" for everyone but management, of course. My DH has been there 10 yrs, no one there longer, but got no consideration at all. So we'll have a late Thanksgiving this year, leaving for Indiana (God willing) on 11/24. I keep thinking I'll never get to hold Mykelti. Everytime we planned on going out, something has gone wrong. So keep your fingers crossed for this time. Hopefully there won't be any
, and we'll make it in one day. It's a 12 hour trip but we want to do it in one shot. So hopefully the weather co-operates.
Meanwhile, enjoy the colors and smells that is fall. Yeah, the warmth of summer is gone but the harshness of winter is yet to come!
