Fall is in the Air

I say to myself that when the temps drop down below 60 at night, I know I’m going to make it.  Summer is almost over.  Look at the temps for tonight . . 49 degrees.  OK . . so we might have a thunderstorm.  The wind is blowing; it smells like Fall and I can hear the high school band practicing.  Life is good in my little corner of MO!

    We cooled off about 10 days ago, no more central air for the year!!! The first day it was cool I made a big batch of white chile……that’s the one thing I dislike about summer…..can’t make soup. I’m actually ready for winter….I want snow on the ground…….I’m so sick of mowing my lawn.

    I’m SO jealous! It was 84 when I left the office at 6:10 tonight! I can’t wait for winter. I hear it’s going to be on February 10, 2009. Must mark that on my calendar so I don’t miss it!

    Like Karen, I can appreciate why you turned off your comments for your previous post but I really enjoyed your sharing of your deeply personal experience of Chad’s birth. Thank you for taking a risk and sharing it.

    I can smell fall coming. I love your description of the high school band practicing, the wind blowing, etc. Sounds like home in Oklahoma. I’ve been living on the east coast and am homesick, bigtime.

    I love that you are heading into fall and we are just starting to enjoy spring here in Australia. I’m enjoying the days becoming longer and getting more done while you are starting to hibernate for winter LOL. Also appreciated your last blog entry. Hugs JJ

    I sure wish I lived in a state that had “seasons”. I was raised in Souther California… not much season there. And now I live in Las Vegas… not much season here either. My dream is to move to Montana where I know I’ll get to experience all four seasons. I can’t wait!
