And I will admit, it is my favorite season, although spring with it’s sense of renewal is in close second. I enjoy the brisk breezes, the changing leaves and the ability to go outside without perspiring. I love the smell the air gets, a crisp scent that I love to have flowing through the house. As fall approaches so does Halloween and pumpkin picking and racing through a cornfield maze. Fall means, Thanksgiving dinner at the dining room table using the fancy dishes as my kids call them and seeing family. I can start shopping for Christmas now without guilt, snagging the items I know my little ones will love before the mad dash. I also turn one year older in the fall, but I don’t mind, because birthdays are no cooking or cleaning days. We order in or get take out. This year, I’m begging for Texas Burger and their drool-licious souvlaki dinner. Mmmm….
What I don’t like about fall is it means snow and frigid temperatures are coming, but I do enjoy spending time indoors as a family playing video games and watching movies. It means Sunday baking where the little one gets eggshells in the dough, and the older ones fight over who gets to stir. I love the smell and warmth of a house that’s cooking when you’ve come in from the fresh outdoor. I even enjoy Sunday football and spending a few dollars on a Proline ticket.
What about you? What’s your thoughts on fall? And what’s your favorite season?
Lol, I’m practicing my howl for when Betraying Pack Law releases September 16th. Four wolves, one human, and a whole lot of danger–and I don’t just mean to her sexual state of mind. Picking up a few years after Defying Pack Law ended, it features a new heroine, a whole new yummy bunch of wolves, and a visit from old friends.
But enough about that. Fall is fast approaching, which means time to batten down the hatches and prepare for the cold, long winter. . Our above ground pool needs to be drained and shut down, the garden pruned, the pool toys (all five million noodles) put away, the hoses wound, and the gazebo cover taken down. Boring stuff. But at least the approach of fall means Halloween is coming. I know hubby is eagerly planning this year’s pumpkin carving. Last year, he outdid himself with the pumpkin pooping into a pie crust with the caption fresh pumpkin pie. So awesome. This year…I guess I’ll have to wait and see.
The kids are starting to plan their costumes, and of course changing their mind every three seconds. The little one has finally decided to not be Tinker Bell this year, but that’s fine with me seeing as how that costume was used (adamantly I might add) for 3 years. I got my money’s worth out of that one lol.
I regret to say, I am not the type to dress up but I love it when other adults do. I’m very self conscious and hate bringing attention to myself. Hubby on the other hand doesn’t mind. Although, he refuses to wear the Chippendale outfit I pointed out. Spoilsport. I’ve got my eye on a marauding pirate one though in the hopes he’ll be inspired to shiver me with his timber. LOL.
So what are you up to now that the kids are back in school, and summer is fading?
