Waiting on Autumn

Sitting here thinking about how time is flying by. Can't believe it's been as long as it has since I last posted. Not enough hours in the day. Please don't ask me why because quite honestly I am to tired to think. Seems like lately I just go through the motions? Do you ever do that? I feel like I am on autopilot. I do what I have to, and then everything else, just goes by the way side. As fast as time is going, summer will be over.

One thing that I love about the summer months is the yard sales. You can get some great little treasures for so little money. But with that being said, I am getting so excited about fall. It is my favorite season of the year and it will be here before we know it.

I have started getting my fall magazines in the mail and my head is reeling with decorating ideas. Already have my decorating list started. I do this every year so I can implement new ideas, I don't know about you, but I know me, if I don't write it down when I think about it, it will be lost in my sea of thoughts. I typically don't decorate for halloween, I decorate with a harvest theme instead, therefore I can enjoy it from September until Thanksgiving, although I do throw in a few halloween goodies close to the actual day. (Hey when you work full time, you doing good to decorate at all. :) )There is just something about the warms hues of the season, all the deep rich colors,reds, mustards, greens.In reality those are my favorite decorating colors, not just for fall.

Not only do I love the look of my house during this time of the year, but the smells of simmering hot soups and apple cider. Something about the dimmly lit rooms and brisk air outside and curling up with a quilt is appealing to me. Spending time in nature trapsing through pumpkin patchs, and farmers markets picking out gourds, and indian corn. Going to fall festivals and apple harvest where they are making homemade apple butter...mmmmmmm, yummy. Carmel apples, need I go on. Are you ready for fall too? I hope you will share with me some of your favorite things to do for fall and some decorating tips.

Fortunately I live in a wonderful area for these type of events. Every weekend there is so much to do, during that time of year. Michael and I are discussing heading to Vermont, Maine and Boston in October. What a perfect time of year to do that. Hopefully it will happen.

Anyway,enough of this for now, gotta scoot.

Oh why oh why did you do that? LOL I can't wait for summer to be over and fall to start. Living in central MA, it is gorgeous here and I can't wait to take the long foliage drives and gather pumpkins and sip hot cider! Love the picture - is that your front door?

That's so funny that you posted this today! Last night, I was sifting through my old magazine baskets and pulled out several fall issues. I was planning out some of my fall outdoor decor! :o)

Yes... I too am LONGING for fall.

Summertime is great and all, but I LOVE everything about fall: the crisp air, apple picking, foliage, pumpkin patches...

I don't want to wish summer away by any means, but I'm looking ahead to all of my fall favorites too :)

I'm so glad you stopped by and left a comment. I enjoyed my visit here and I'm sure I'll be back.

And speaking of visits, have you been to New England in the fall before? It's THE BEST!
