This Week...Falling for Fall


There’s something about this time of year that energizes us in a way that an approaching Spring doesn’t.  Fall signals not just cooler weather but it says “On your mark, get ready....the holiday season is almost here!”

 

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. Stanley Horowitz



The leaves don’t morph into the vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows as they do up north. But once in a while, Mother Nature sneaks in a tree that shares those magnificent colors with us. 

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.  L. M. Montgomery



Pumpkins are everywhere I look and there are huge bags of Reese’s, M&M’s, Snickers, and every other candy known to mankind laying in wait as soon as you enter a store.

 

The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let the dead things go. Unknown


 

We went from temperatures close to 100 degrees to a high today of 85. I’ll take it!!!



A fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer’s wave goodbye. Unknown

 

Larry can’t wait to turn our fireplace on (just like a kid) and I can’t wait to cook some cold weather foods like chili and my red beans and rice. 

 

Have a wonderful first of Fall weekend.

Hi Kathy!  I love Fall most of all!  It actually has cooled down here in Phoenix very nicely.  81 today which means fall is on the way! Yea!  It looks a bit like fall in our house...pops of fall colors here and there!  So pretty.  And I agree with Larry.....I look forward to fires again.  For now I've put candles in our fireplace and turn those on every night.  So pretty!

Hi Kathy Streib I'm a big fan of fall too.  We can finally say goodbye to those 100° + days, fall colors, and football!

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint are you putting those leaf-filled pumpkin bags out for decoration??  Wherever you're going...have fun!!!

Grant Schneider I know the changing of the leaves and the colors have something to do with how much rain was received but not sure how.

Hi faye schubert oh yes...growing up in Texas, Fall means football!!!!  I have fun doing some Fall decorating but the older I get the less I do. 

Brian England so happy you liked the photo! Got lucky for a sunrise catch!!  And yes, after our walk, we started with College Game Day and we are still watching football.

Hello Kathy - it seems as if any seasonal change has a cornucopia of all sorts of things involved.  In fact, cornucopia might be a good word to describe the many Fall-related activitie(and all sorts of 'bounty')that await us.
