Almost the start of fall

Yesterday was the first time that Richard and I did not get up to complete our workout. We did it when he got home instead. Well then both of us were achy and slept like crap. I guess we need to get up and workout in the morning from now on!

Since we were tired and so were the boys we had a slow morning today. Richard decided to go on a bike ride by himself and then he needed to take his bike into the shop. The boys headed off to the playground with a football and I decided to clean and put up some decorations. For the last few weeks I’ve been saying I need to put out my fall decorations. Well since it’s already half way through Sept. I decided to put up my Halloween decorations too. I did not put out the outside ones, just the ones in the house.

I always like this time of year. Time to open up the windows. Time to decorate for the upcoming holidays and so much more. This is the beginning of the craziness of the holidays, but also the beginning of the fun.

This week I have salsa stoup and chili on our menu. Since the 21st is the official start of fall I guess I’ll get into the fall spirit. (One of my students tried to convince me that fall already started, ummmm nope sorry it hasn’t. Labor day is the unofficial start of fall… the autumnal equinox is not until Sept. 21)

This means plans to go apple picking, pumpkin picking, decorating for Halloween and so much more.  I can tell you one thing I won’t do, have anything pumpkin spice. I don’t like pumpkin spice. I do not get the fixation everyone has with this smell and taste. Personally it does nothing for me. Oh well to each their own.

Are you ready for fall? Do you like pumpkin spice? When do you decorate for Halloween?

  1. My birthday is on Halloween so I think that’s one reason I’ve always enjoyed Fall. I like the festivals too. I am not a fan of the taste of pumpkin but I do like the smell. I’ll probably decorate for Fall at the end of September. I like to stretch summer out as long as I can. We’re about to head to the pool.

  2. It’s so true that this time of year is just the beginning of a crazy time but also the beginning of so many fun times. I think I’m finally ready for fall. Mid-September seems like the appropriate time to consider it fall.
