Oh the joyous fall season is officially upon us, and I couldn't be happier.
I know, it's not really the same living here in Arizona. We don't get to enjoy the fall season as we used to in Idaho or even in any other northern State. I *could* drive two hours up north to see something reminiscent of fall, but, it's not always possible.
I don't think it will stop me from enjoying every second though. Hardest part of making belief? The triple digits we're still enduring.
Goodness gracious, it is enough already. At this point I would be perfectly happy with a 90 degree temperature, that for me would be cool enough.
Anyway, how did you all spend your first day of fall?
Did you dive right in to decorations, did you head to the kitchen and pull out anything pumpkiny (just go with it lol)??
I started with some fall decorating, then realized that I really don't have much in the way of fall decorations, other than Halloween. Oh boy, I guess I need to scrounge up some fallish stuff for my home.
I couldn't start any baking either because for once in my life, I have no pumpkin in my pantry. I don't even know how that is possible because I always have a can or two or three, but nope, nothing. Darnit.
We did spend a semi quiet day I guess....breakfast started with some pecan pancakes drizzled in berry syrup and with a dollop of whipped cream, and to wash it down hubby and I enjoyed some Cinnamon Spice coffee.
Ran an errand with the family, came home and worked a little on the yards and ended off the day watching the sun setting over the mountains.
I'm always amazed at how beautifully stunning the sky is at sunset.
Now I'm going to sit down with my crochet, watch something on TV and relax. I'm thinking tomorrow will be a day of much the same, except with loads of laundry thrown in and some homeschooling catch up too. Oh well, it's the joys of life right???
Have a great evening everyone,
PS By the way, I really immensely dislike the new blogger format. Why did they change it, I was so happy with the way things were, this new way of posting is already giving me headaches.
