Goodness is it really September already? I can't believe Summer is all but done, Fall is right around the corner and we're inching ever so close to Christmas.
Where has time gone?
All around me the signs of Fall are showing up, and I don't know about you but I'm pretty chuffed with that, after all it is one of my favorite seasons.
The trees are starting to change color, and at first I thought it a little early to be seeing these signs, but I guess maybe not as I've seen a few friends mention leaves on the ground.
I stepped outside with the camera, and mind you, I don't like going out there really, because I want to be comfortable in shorts and flip flops and not have to worry about chiggers.
They got me so good about two weeks ago and I'm still not over the marks they left on my legs. It looks awful and they itch so bad and I just don't want to mess with them.
But, for the sake of blogging and getting some good pics, I ventured out there. I once again threw on Nick's snow boots and made my way out, thankfully the grass is not tall either so I may not have to endure any more chigger bites. Fingers crossed!!!
Anyway, low and behold, I have quite a lot of leaves on the ground already.
So pretty, so very pretty.
I keep saying it, but I love the area I'm living in. I'm a nature girl, I love the outdoors so this is a special treat being able to be surrounded by acreage of land and such a myriad of nature from animals to plants.
I didn't stay out there too long, just snapped those pics and ran back inside.
So, yes, September is here and I'm hoping that with this new month, a renewed love for my blogs and my food blog specifically, come into play.
I've started a new feature where I'll share my weekly meals every week, I'll take pictures of our dinner and on the weekend I'll do a review post so you'll see what we had. If I have recipes already posted, I'll link you to them.
I just need to get back in the groove of cooking, and I mean cooking real meals and enjoying it because the business of my life lately has made it where I turn to quick easy meals, or we go out which is something we never did before, and quite frankly, both my family and I are just ready to get back to the basic good old homecooked meals.
So Hi September, welcome, I hope you bring good things with you.
