Here are a few photos that I took of the gorgeous leaves this weekend.
I do have to say this is my favorite time of the year. How about you?!
Hi and Happy Sunday! Today, September 22, is the first day of fall. I heard on Good Morning America that it officially starts at 4:44 p.m. I always thought it started in the morning but apparently not.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the summer and all of the fun we had. Summer is special in its own way, but fall is my favorite of the four seasons.
In the summer, I love to be in San Diego, California, especially July. For several years we did just that and it was fantastic. So many wonderful memories, beautiful scenery, and fun people to be with.
But, the fall in Tennessee and North Carolina cannot be beaten. This photo I took last fall – actually in mid-October while in Flat Rock, North Carolina. Isn’t it beautiful? I love the brilliant color of the leaves.
There are so many things that I love about the fall, also called autumn. Where do I start?
I love eating my mother’s pumpkin bread with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese and a cold glass of milk. YUMMY. This truly is a treat for me. I also love the fall since Silk Nog is sold this time of year. I am allergic to eggs so this works for baking at this time of year.
Fall is the time of crunchy leaves and brisk walks. It is the time of trick or treat, and back to school. And, the time of fall breaks, a pot of chili, sitting under a blanket reading a good book, and enjoying being inside together.
Next week, Ian will go on his first field trip – called field study. I am hoping to be able to go. The trip is to a pumpkin, fruit and berry patch. It will include a hayride, getting a pumpkin, a corn maze, time to eat lunch, and many other fun activities. Isn’t that fun? And, so perfect for fall.
A few quotes about fall/autumn:
I wonder what fun and amazing things this fall will bring? I cannot wait to find out and see, touch, hear, taste, and smell this amazing season.
