Kelly's "Easy Like Sunday Morning"

It's Sunday, so Kelly doesn't fail! Here's her question of the week and my answer!

Here's my question of the week.  Answer it in your journal and come back here and leave me a link in the comments.  I'll post your links next weekend and we'll start over again next Sunday :-)

Tell me.....

"What does fall mean to you?  Not everybody in J-land has 4 extreme seasons, so what does the season change mean where you live?"

I love fall!  That chill in the air when you get up in the morning and the SMELL!  It all smells so clean and new.  Almost tricks you into thinking things will start to grow again.  Fall here in Michigan means lots and lots and LOTS of leaves.  And, of course, checking boots and coats and gloves and mittens to make sure you are all set for the inevitable snow that will start arriving any moment :-)  Princess has her birthday tomorrow, so we love the fall.  Halloween decorations and running in the leaves - it's the best!

Ok Fall to me, well I grew up and lived most of my life in Kansas so of course the beginning of fall almost always was still hot...I can see right now that today in Kansas the high is 91!!!! Once it starts cooling off though, it takes me back initially...to those care free days of youth, where it's cool enough that your mom is making you wear a jacket, although you know as soon as you're out of her sight that sucker's coming off (since you'll be running around and getting too hot to wear it anyways! LOL). The leaves changing colors and falling. It makes me think of high school football games. For those who really know me, like Miss Kelly does, love of football is known about me! I LOVE football. I loved being in high school and knowing that Friday nights was going to be a blast at the football field..win or lose it was always fun and of course afterwards was even better! LOL I was a little ummm..wild in my teenage years!

Now, it makes me think of leaves falling and rain. Rain every day. In Germany it rains everyday almost during October and November! It makes the air have that wonderful fresh smell. The leaves are dropping like mad here too, they're all turning yellow and covering the ground.

Just an added bonus, I have a picture that as my mom said "reminds me of the morton salt picture" , but it's my 4 yr old, Jacob at the rose garden yesterday!

Love the picture of your little one; good fall memories - rain every day in Germany in October? Don't know if I could go for that - are there periods of sun?

I love fall. The smell of it just makes every thing seem so clean and fresh smelling. I miss it back east all the many many colors in the trees and on the ground. Here there is no trace of fall.. blah texas.
Your son is adorable!
