Welcome September

Welcome Friends......

It just dawned on me as to why I have been so eager to get started on my Fall decorations.   As most of you might recall, our home was in the Christmas Tour of homes last year.  

I practically had to skip the Fall season and move forward to the Christmas season......{like in September of last year.}   WE HAD NO AUTUMN at this house last year!!!!   

That's right...NO pumpkins, NO Autumn leaves, NO French vanilla or pumpkin spice candles, NO mums, NO scarecrows, NO apple pie or Banana nut bread!!!  Can you imagine?

So, for this reason.....I am "Falling" it up this year!!  Lol.

I'm adding the below things to my Fall Bucket List....

1.  Take a nature in hand.
2.  Roast Marshmallows
3.  Decorate homemade cookies
4.  Bake Fall treats
5.  Make a Fall Wreath
6.  Go to the Football games
7.  Carve a pumpkin
8. Do a Bible Study
10.  Go on a Road trip
11.  Go on a hayride
12.  Try a NEW Fall recipe

Ok....this is a good start, however.....I will more than likely 
do a lot of adding to this list!!

Hey Y'all......September is HERE.

Is it Fall??

What a good week it was...........AND,  I was able to listen to so many great {First Week} of school stories from both my daughters and my grandkids.   

Kids are so cute!!!

I decorated my dad's room yesterday....  We are now into the FALL decor.    I bought an Autumn swag, and decorated his bulletin board!  Looks great.   I also purchased two, really cute banners and hung one of them in front of the curtains on his window.  Hung the other one on the bulletin board.  

I then replaced his RED bedspread with a beautiful bright Orange one.   I found a Turquoise blanket to help keep him warm.   After adding a few Fall wall hangings and a bucket of Fall flowers.......his room looked totally awesome!

I don't know if anyone else feels the way I do......but I like knowing that my dad's room is comfortable for him and that it is filled with uplifting decor.   After all....the nursing home {his room} is now his HOME!  His room needs to be comfortable and have that home feeling.

Have any of the rest of you made any FALL purchases?  I must is difficult to get all excited about the  scarecrows and pumpkins lining the store shelves.....when it is still in the upper 90's outside.   

Our little town is having a scarecrow decorating contest and the money up for grabs could land someone a hundred bucks!
The challenge is to decorate our front yards with a scarecrow or scarecrows......along with other Fall decorations.    The one voted on as BEST, wins the money.

I'm not really feeling the decorating fever yet, so it's still up in the air as to whether or not I will enter.    

After all.......I've got cruising on my mind right now.   {A story for later this week}

Hoping you all enjoy a wonderful Sunday!  Don't FORGET to do something that will Bless the Lord.
