It's Fall!

The mornings are cold, the afternoons are blisteringly hot. Last week, I got up early to mow a section of lawn every morning. This week, I have been waiting until the sun finally dries the dew off of the lawn enough to mow. Soon I'll be raking and mowing. And railing internally at the irony.

I love fall because it's warm enough still to wear my easy to slip on sandals, and we all know how important that is, especially when pregnant. And fall is also cool enough to warrant a little bit of a wardrobe change.... nothing too drastic, just a little warmer clothing.

I love fall because of the things we'll be doing soon, all the fun stuff there is to look forward to. September will be packed with soccer games and practices, and on the 22nd, I'll be holding a meeting at my church to try to start a mothers group. In October, there's more soccer, the annual chili cookoff, Nevada day, and of course, Halloween. Then, Thanksgiving, our wedding anniversary, Christmas, New Years, the new baby...... Fall and Winter are just going to be so much fun this year!

Up here Fall = Country Fairs! Every week there is another fair to go to. It gets very busy! Plus I work real hard at getting all my holiday shopping done BEFORE Thanksgiving. I hate shopping in the snow! I'd rather be home by the fire wrapping. No fall decorations out just yet, I'm holding on to summer for as long as I can. I think I'm a "Southerner" at heart.
