So here we are, it is September.
Summer is almost over, kids are back to school.
This time of year always feels like a new year is starting.
Not January, but September, I guess it's because we
start to do yard clean up, getting things that have overgrown dug up,
new plantings going in for next Spring, we're putting away our summer clothes to bring out those warm ones,
washing linens and bringing out the warm blankets.
I love this time of year, I don't know about where you're at but here
the nights are cooling down.
I know we'll have an occasional warm day, but it won't be stifling.
We've had so much rain that I hope we have a beautiful Fall season.
Although we live a half hour from D.C., we just have to drive the opposite direction and in 15 minutes we're driving back country roads that I can't wait to do when the leaves change.
It's been a busy summer, a nice summer, some real hot days, but also some not so bad days, so I'm not complaining, but I'm ready for Fall and then Winter when we can put logs into our fireplace and cozy up.
Start cooking those yummy comfort stews and soups, baking new recipes, and maybe getting some crafting done.
We have finished our kitchen remodel, I just need to take pictures now. We'd like to add tile to our wall, but it's such a commitment that we can't decide what we want, so when the time is right we'll get right on that, but for now, everything is finally done.
Still have some other around the house projects that we need to finish up, hopefully it'll get done before this year is over.
But tomorrow, I will go paint shopping and get some fresh new plants to replace the overgrown ones in our pots.
Also get some ideas for a Fall Centerpiece that I can leave on our table when not in use and that my furry creatures can't break if they get curious.
I like this one
Or maybe this one
I may have a long and narrow plate like this, not sure, but this is simple and pretty, I'd add a candle in the middle for height.
I like this one the most
So many ideas out there in Google world plus craft stores have been Fall ready since end of July, which was insane, I don't get why they keep on pushing these seasons earlier and earlier each year. Do people start buying stuff that early?
It's July and it's 90 degrees out, the last thing on my mind is Fall décor.
But now, I'm ready! I have to control myself and not put out the Fall wreathes on our front door and gate side yard entrance. The day it's officially Fall, I'll have them ready to be put up.
