Happy Friday, everyone! How did your week-end up? Mine was good, pretty quiet. We got our first frost of the season, Thursday morning, and I forgot to cut down my flowers and cover them up! I’m sure they’ll be fine. It is supposed to warm back up, but I’ll still cut them down. I like the whole process of “gearing up for winter.” Cleaning everything up, putting everything away. And the best part of all that, getting out the Fall decorations! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I’ll start that Saturday.ย 

So, how was your week? Any weekend plans? What do you do to get ready for a new season? Do you change decorations? I know some people who even change their kitchen and bathroom themes, to fit the season. I have things I add; towels, wall hanging, little figurines. It’s fun to change things up!ย

    I’m coming out of a funk this week. I do believe I’m doing better than I had been recently. However, I’m still moving kinda slow and behind on my work.

    The weather has been nice, for the most part. It’s such a relief to be done with the heat of summer. Now here’s hoping the fall is mild.

    I’ve dumped my aggravations here (on “unload” or elsewhere), so I hate to rehash anything here. I don’t have anything exciting to report. Just glad to have gotten through another week, I guess.

    Oh, I did do some organizing. I cleaned out a couple of closets and made space for my kids’ fall/winter clothes, piling up bags of stuff to give to my sister’s tot. I dug through some stuff in the basement. That will take forever to complete, but at least I made progress. I bought the kids a couple of things for their walls and hung them up. So that’s something, right?

    I hope everyone has a great weekend!

    My week has been fairly busy and I am looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend of doing nothing!! The weekends after this one are going to be filled up with very fun things pretty much until Thanksgiving so I am looking forward to the peace & quiet this weekend.
    As far as gearing up for the change of seasons goes I don’t do much in the way of changing decor. I decorate for Halloween but that is pretty much it. But we really don’t get a change of season here in South Texas. I know maybe I will turn the ceiling fan down from High to Medium for Fall!

    I think I’m finally recovering from the nonsense of last weekend. I, too, rehashed most of it over on Unload, so I’m not going to do it here. But I will update a little. The chick who dumped the Popcorn Chairmanship on me the day before the Kickoff, because she took a full-time job and couldn’t handle both? Quit the job the day she was supposed to start. And then sent word to the pack the next day (the evening of the kickoff) that she’d still be willing to be the Chairman. HAH. As if. so I’m the chairman for this year. Hopefully, I’ll find an apprentice to train for next year.

    Josh has tomorrow off, so I’m not sure what we’ll be doing. Saturday, we have some Scout things to do, and Sunday I think will be a veg-day. Monday, I’m going to try and get back on track with my organizing of the place. After the insanity of last week, I have to start back at square one.

    I am SOOO happy, though, that the hot weather has finally (please, God) broken. I endure summer. I really don’t like the heat. I like this kind of weather – jeans, sweaters, comfy shoes. Ahhhh… and the beautiful colors. I love fall.

      Wow, that lady sounds like a nutcase. I would not rely on her ever again. She needs to rehabilitate her reputation.

      I’m with you on fall. It’s always been my favorite season. Only since I had kids, it’s become stressful, too – there is so much to do and so little time. It doesn’t help that three of the household birthdays are in October, along with Halloween, Adoption Day, and this year, my parents’ 50th anniversary bash. Then of course there are all the November doings and numerous Christmas doings, followed immediately by the other kid’s birthday. So that feeling of “aaahhh, fall” isn’t quite what it used to be.

    I love fall, too, but I’m really sad to see summer go. We didn’t have a bonfire until Labor Day weekend! It was so darn buggy here that it was impossible to be outside after dark. And to go from 90 to 50 is a little ridiculous! I was hoping for a nice long fall; which I suppose we could still have, but with the first frost out of the way, I don’t think it’ll be long ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I covered the stuff in our garden as best I could, but it’s done for. The squash wasn’t ready and the pumpkins are huge, but they weren’t ready either so I’m hoping they last until Halloween. There’s not as many pumpkins as I thought there was either ๐Ÿ˜ฆ We did end up with a laundry basket full of tomatoes so Toby’s been making salsa the last couple of nights. I woke up this morning to a filthy kitchen! His response? It was so late by the time I got done I wasn’t cleaning up! Big surprise. This first batch of salsa is hot hot hot so I won’t be eating much of it!

    I have a Norwex party to go to tonight and that’s about all that’s planned for the weekend. Oh, our church’s fall festival is on Sunday so we may hit that too. Otherwise, Saturday will be reserved for putting my outdoor stuff away and changing my decor in the house. Yes, I change my little knick knacks with the seasons ๐Ÿ™‚ Which reminds me, I’m going to a craft fair today to see what else I can find! Have a great weekend everyone!

    • Nikki says:

      Hey, we like it hot hot hot! If you have too much, you know where to send it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Sue says:

        He got 11 quarts so I’m sure he’ll share! It was like throat burning for me so I’m sure it’s normal hot for other people!

    • Joy says:

      He should do it on the weekend. By the time he starts making that stuff at night it’s too late. It takes so long to bring that stuff to a boil and then can them. I remember when I worked and had to do it at night, I was dead to the world too. Or he could skip it completely this year. Didn’t you have any left from last year?

      Too bad about the gardens this year but you’re not alone. Nobody’s did well. To think of all that wasted work.

      • Sue says:

        He was going to skip it, but there was more tomatoes than we thought. We don’t have any left from last year. He’s just so putsy! It wouldn’t take a normal person that long!

    Guess what I woke up to this morning? The sound of Bailey’s bus driving by! None of the alarms went off this morning. I checked and they were all set, so I’m not sure what happened. Thankfully, Bailey is super easy in the morning. He does like to have at least an hour to himself in the morning before he even gets ready, but he did great. Got up, got dresses, ate, brushed his teeth and we were out the door in 20 minutes. Got to school right on time!

    Not how I generally like to start my day, but it was fine. I’m just thankful I made it there and back. We have a leak in our gas tank, so we can’t put much in there.

    We have nothing going on tonight, thank heavens! I put some honey BBQ wings in the crock pot, so I don’t even have to worry about cooking supper. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Hunter has his early childhood screening today. Kinda nervous about it but I’m sure all will go fine. atleast I’ll know what we need to work on. He’s excited, but doesn’t really get it. He thinks he’s actually going to school. But its only an hr!

      • Jenny says:

        Well she said he’s right where he should be. Needs work on his f’s and his ck sounds, like track. During the writing he had to make a circle, line, plus sign, E, & b well he did those great but after those he said I’m done. Don’t wanna do anymore. Of course there was a lot more writing to do but he didn’t want to do it. He had to use scissors, which he knows how to do, and during the screening he was using 2 hands with the scissors…it was so hard to just sit back and not do anything!!! Like Hunter you know how to do this stuff!!! It was frusterating. He did great with the blocks and shapes. So all in all he did good but could’ve been better if he would’ve finished everything.

        • SKL says:

          That’s pretty good! Miss A could not copy something in writing to save her life at that age. (Of course, that’s why she needed vision therapy.) Her percentile was like .007%ile or something, LOL. Pretty scary! She’s a pretty neat writer now, for her age.

          I know what you mean about frustrating – but I’m sure most of the kids had something they wouldn’t do. Kids that age are just unpredictable. It sounds like he did great overall.
