A Hint of Fall

I love fall. It is my favorite season. I know people are saying it is fall, but really fall does not begin until September 23rd, which happens to be my hubby's birthday. We were enjoying cooler days this past week, and then over the weekend the temperature went up to 80. Tonight, it is a beautiful night. The windows are open and there is a cool breeze. It is getting darker earlier and I love the sounds of the, well not sure what it is, but I think it is an insect. I have not put away the summer clothes yet, we are known to have hot days into October. As soon as you think it has cooled off the temperatures soar again.
Fall is a time of change. Back to school for the kids, or shall I say back to routine for us homeschoolers
? A time to start new habits. For me that means trying to exercise regularly again. The leaves will be changing here soon to beautiful reds, golds and oranges. There will be decorations of pumpkins, gourds and haystacks. Apple picking and buying Mums at the farm stands, hay rides for the kids and the smell of fireplaces burning. It is a season of giving thanks. My favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is a couple of months away, which means it will be our anniversary soon too. We were married the Saturday after Thanksgiving in 2001. Did I mention fall is my favorite season?!
What about you? What do you love most about Fall. I'd love to hear.
