Fall is my favorite time of year! I am so excited about being able to decorate soon. I only wish it was sooner. I am ready for fall now. The kids are riding the big, yellow bus to school. I remember when I was little, it was starting to get chilly and we would wear sweaters and sweatshirts. Here in the south, it is still in the low to mid 90's. What I would give to be able to start up the fireplace right now!! Which reminds me.... I need to make my order of wood. Seeing a neatly stacked woodpile just makes me so very happy. This will be the first year I plan on having a woodpile. Last year we just bought it as we needed it... which cost more than it should have. I am not too sure on how to do it or what is truly required (there are lots of things that would be nice but are not really necessary...). If anyone out there has any great info on that, I would be ever so grateful. I know I haven't been around much lately, but that is mostly because I have 5 kids, went to California for a week and had three to get ready for school (started this past Monday.). With only two at home now, it should be a little easier. Of course, the two remaining are three and 11 months, so maybe I am just wishfully thinking... but it has been more relaxed and quiet so I think it should be just fine. Are any of you out there excited about the coming fall season? Is anyone else as nutty as me for beginning the plans for all the plantings and indoor/outdoor decor for the season? I can't wait!! Oh for a chilly night where I could make hot chocolate and sit in front of the fire. Soon... I can't wait!! :)
I am a stay at home mother of 5. I love decorating (but could always use ideas from others...). I try to recycle as much as I can and try to reuse things and still make them look neat... and I love to cook from scratch!!
