come on... fall

My favorite season is SLOWLY creeping in.

We had a little taste of it a few weeks ago, but the 100+ heat index has come back... and it's killing my marathon training.  I was an adult and got up early yesterday to do my run before church, and I'm so glad I did as the heat index yesterday, [note Sept 19] was probably 110.

T was standing outside the house clapping for me as I finished up the hill on Fiesta.  Thanks hubby, oh and he had a nice glass of ice water ready for me.

And this guy was cheering for me from inside.  :)

Here is what I'm most looking forward to in the upcoming season [in no particular order]:

1 - anything pumpkin flavored and pumpkin/fall decor.  decor might have to start asap to cheer me up in this extended heat!
2 - scarves
3 - boots
4 - sweaters & turtlenecks
5 - running during a brisk afternoon
6 - the lotts coming to visit
7 - gibson's "birthday" to our little family
8 - holiday festivities
9 - listening to the hubby in all his hunting excitement talk [that has already begun]
10 - [hopefully] planting some bushes in the front of our house!
11 - riding bikes around the neighborhood and the new greenway trail
12 - pumpkin run 5k

What are your fall favorites?



Well my mom was the first to say something about the mistake on the September desktop...

30 days has September, April, June & November...

Thanks for letting me know, mom! Now you can all just know that September 31=October 1.


I'm tardy.. but it's September

This week [aka, tomorrow] our good buddies, the Stephens, are leaving for 2 years to go to Italy.  I'll probably write another post to them, but last night T bid his farewells and it was bittersweet.  He and Ryan have become such great friends, and it was very sweet to see them say bye.  Some tears built up in my eyes.

With that being said, I know it's September because this is the month they have been planning to leave.  And it's finally here.  And I can't believe it.

I know it's September because marathon training is getting tougher.

Football season began.

The weather is cooling down a bit.

Fall is right around the corner and I can hardly wait.  It's my favorite time of the year.

I hope everyone is enjoying their September, and had a nice Labor Day weekend.  I had a good ol' time helping Les around her house, running, spending time at Long Leaf, and of course with T.  Here's to September everyone, Laura requested some cheery sunflowers!
