Sometime’s, it can be a bummer when summer is over, but don’t let that get you down. Listed below are several reasons why the Fall Season… Rocks!
The Heat Fades Away
After the summer heat wave, we can appreciate the cool fall temperatures, and the breeze carrying that crisp, sweet scent of the changing season. Fall weather is just downright perfect for anything you feel like doing. So take advantage of those perfect temps before Jack Frost strolls into town.
The Bugs and Other Pests Go Bye Bye.
As the temperature continues to drop lower each night, the insects will start to disappear. We also lose those other pests due to hibernation like Bats, Skunks, Deer Mice, Tree Frogs, and Ground Squirrels. And the snakes will stop slithering through the yard. Yes!
Our Favorite TV Shows Return
After all those season cliffhangers we’ve had to wait months for… are finally coming back on.
Like all these:
- Fear of the walking dead.
- American Horror Story.
- Scream Queens. (yessssss, love that show)
- The Voice
- The Last Man on Earth
The list goes on and on. But it’s time to schedule that DVR― and record away. Don’t forget to add popcorn, chips and dip and a few sweet snacks to your grocery list. Now you’re ready to jump in front of the TV and continue on your cinematic journey.
Pumpkin or Peppermint Latte’s
Fall is the time when all those specialty spices and flavors make an appearance. YUM! Remember: Eggnog will appear in stores and so will those delicious seasonal ice creams.
The Leaves Change Color
Now’s the best time to get out in nature and see the beauty that surrounds you. Lay in the grass and watch those leaves fall from the trees, dancing and floating through the air before they land and decorate the landscape in brilliant shades or red, orange, brown and yellow. Remember to save some of those leaves to make mulch for your future vegetable gardens and flower beds.
Fire up that grill and invite your friends over and enjoy those cool Sunday afternoon football games. Plan a laid back beer night for Monday and Thursday nights. Time to cheer on your favorite teams and mock your rivals every chance you get. Nothing wrong with a little friendly competition, right?
Get down to the farmer’s market and buy some delicious fall fruits and vegetables.
Gotta Love these:
- Cabbage and Brussel Sprouts
- Sweet Potatoes
If you love fresh pumpkin and apple pie; time to start baking. Vanilla ice cream is always ideal for alamode.
Time to Park Your Lawn Mower
Go ahead and put that baby back in the garage and enjoy your yard-free time. You might have a few leaves to rack, but other than that, your lawn is ready to take a long nap. Nice!
Fall Decorations and Costume Planning
Unpack those scary or Thanksgiving decorations. It also the perfect time to start making your Halloween costume or planning a great party. Get creative and have fun.
Kids Are Back in School
Now you can get back to your regular routine and have a few kid-free moments to yourself. If you take advantage of a car-pool system, you can stay in your robe until noon. Awh! This is the Life!
