It's just around the corner

Can you believe that August is just a few days away? This Summer is going by really, really fast! Do you think it is too early to start thinking about Fall? If you do, then I am guilty. Because I find my mind wandering...thinking about picking fresh apples at Greenbluff, cooking squash and other yummy root vegetables, pumpkin pie, the colorful leaves...Thanksgiving...o.k., so maybe my mind has wandered a little too far, I will not think about Thanksgiving quite yet:) If you haven't guessed, Fall is by far my most favorite time of year and I love the anticipation that August brings. All month long I wait with anticipation as Summer winds down. I anticipate cooler days and cozy nights. I anticipate wearing my jeans, sweater, and even socks {I live in my flip flops all Summer long!}

It's almost like August goes by in slow motion-because I just want to savor every bit of sunshine before Fall is here. It's my last chance, so I try to make the most of it. I call the month of August Summers Encore-the last hurrah, the grand finale.

Even though I haven't been in school for quite a while I still get the urge to buy notebooks, loose leaf paper, pencils, pens, folders, and binders. I love the crisp white pages and the smell of newly sharpened pencils. Ahhhh....Remember going school shopping for clothes and getting a new wardrobe? I remember feeling gypped when I was out of school and that no longer happened. Mom, do you have any desire to take me shopping for a new wardrobe for no other reason than the fact that September is around the corner-no? OK, didn't think so.

September is like my New Years. Even though it doesn't officially mark the start of a new calendar year-it seems more like a time of new beginnings then January 1st. Even though I don't have a school age child, it will be the start of new activities at church, getting back into a routine...sometimes I miss the routine that summer lacks.

You know what else I love? All the craft stores are starting to stock their Fall paper-I love the leaf motif almost as much as I love all things owls and birds!

Am I the only one-or is anyone else thinking about Fall yet?


  1. I have been thinking about fall too. It has been 100 degrees for atleast 2 weeks straight, so cooler weather is welcomed here!

    But I really love the changing of the seasons. I love the different colored leaves, and the smell of fall.

  2. i was thinking about christmas yesterday...does that count? ;)

  3. I love the fall ~ and can't wait for cooler days/nights! :)
