Just around the corner...

Our backyard last Fall

My favourite time of the year is just around the corner. I love Fall. I start thinking about it every year starting sometime in June...probably on the first hot day of the summer. I think it must stem from when I was a kid. I loved "Back to School". I loved getting new clothes and school supplies and heading back to school to see what all my friends had been up to all summer.

Now I love Fall for many reasons. Cool mornings followed by warm afternoons. The colours of the leaves. Halloween. Football Season. Thanksgiving. Apple picking.

I also get to be ME (yes, just plain old me...not wife, not mommy...ME) for most of the month of October. I work in October. It's the only time where I actually work and get paid. And I actually get on a plane and leave my husband and kids. That's hard but it's great to just be me for part of the year.

Oh...and another awesome part of Fall...getting ready for Christmas...and maybe even that first snowfall.

What's your favourite time of year?


  1. That was lovely! You have me thinking happy fall thoughts, too. BUT, truthfully, I do not have a fav time of year. I've been thinking how I like the anticipation of each season as much as its arrival.

    I am still enjoying my pool very much. :) Barbara

  2. You know my favorite time of the year. :) How about when I do come to Canada, I look you up and we can sit in that GORGEOUS backyard of yours and drink some tea..or, uh, something else. ;)

  3. I LOVE the fall too. We used to live near Boston and the colors were spectacular. I miss that in California.

    I think the anticipation of the "new" that fall brings with school etc. is what I always loved. The crisp air, apple cider, football etc. AND now, my boys' birthdays in October!

  4. I agree, fall is a beautiful time of year -especially in Canada!
