2.  Candy corn and peanuts or popcorn and M&M's?'s a two question Friday.  I'm tired.......

My dislike of fall has been well-documented here and here.  This year I'm trying to approach fall with a new attitude.  Instead of thinking of it as the season that falls before the Big Nasty winter, I'm going to try and think of fall as that time of year when everything sleeps and rests and gets ready for a season of renewal.  The operative words here are "I'm going to try". 

For now I will focus on......

Football games with Cam and Sam

Apple orchards

and pretty fall decorations.  

If you need me I'll be eating my candy corn and drinking my apple cider.  ;-)

Have a great weekend!!

Maybe sometime I'll actually write a real post again.......

This is what Hootenanny green looks like.  The kids love it.  I like it more now that the shower curtain is up.  The pictures don't quite do it justice.  It is basically the same color as a granny smith apple. 

I just read somewhere that using color in your home is one way of making yourself feel younger......evidently I am feeling really old!!  ;-)
