I recently posted my ten favorite things this summer for Listicles, you can read that here.

While I had a wonderful summer and enjoyed the time I spent with my family, but I am looking forward to the fall.

The COOLER weather…

the deep, rich colors of fall

the scrumptious smells of fall

the satisfying foods of fall

the fun and blessed holidays

paychecks and money

Sorry this was a shorter post…It’s been a busy week back at work. I am trying to stay on top of it all. I love it though, I am happy to be working and look forward to a great year. I have lots planned for this year, tons of “to do” lists and “must buy” list. Holidays to be celebrated and memories to be made.


Ready for Fall — 25 Comments

  1. I love that first time you step outside in the fall and you can just tell that it’s a bit cooler and sweater weather is just around the corner. It just makes me happy! –Lisa

  2. I love your list for the Fall and hope you had a great first full week. Have been thinking about you and sending good thoughts for a calm, quiet peaceful weekend coming up, too now!! 🙂

    • OMG….Janine…I am so tired and getting a cold…it’s been flipping hard. I may cut back on some posts…I just can’t keep up and work on this full schedule…plus less posts gives me more time to read other blogs. I think I may cut out Silly Sundays and Wordless Wednesdays.

  3. I also welcome fall. Sure, out here in CA, we don’t get the complete change of season like we did when I lived in NY, but I always welcome the cooler weather, the pumpkins, the scents of the season. It’s great. I love this time of year with all the holidays.

    • yup, I can’t wait for it all…love seeing pumpkin coffee in the bagel shop.,..just makes me feel so warm and cozy, not that I can drink it every day. that is a big change NY to CA…

  4. I’m so happy that you are enjoying your new job. That’s so important! Don’t push yourself with the blogging, do what you can when you can.

    I totally agree with the cooler weather. I used to love the summer but since I don’t have a pool anymore it is hot. Today the weather is in the 70s and it’s just perfect.

    • I may have to stop posting everyday. I just can’t post and read blogs while working with a full schedule of students. I think I may stop Wordless Wed and Silly Sunday.

      I think I would prefer an INDOOR POOL, LOLOLOL…that is perfect weather. I just love waking up feeling chilly and knowing it’s oing to be a cool and beautiful day.

  5. Hi Karen , I always feel drawn to say hello to all the other Karen’s I come across. Sounds like you are getting busy and ready for the beauty and the coolness of Fall. Thought you may like to watch a video I made in what we call Autumn here in Australia, something to get you in the mood. Happy Sharefest.

    Please enjoy

  6. I agree with the first four on your list, but unfortunately the fifth one doesn’t apply to me. Hope your school year is off to a good start. And don’t kill yourself on the blog – I found that even posting less often didn’t affect my traffic that much.

  7. I have to agree with the rich and deep colors of fall. The foliage is my favorite part about fall.
    And Thanksgiving dinner.. mm can’t wait for that.
    Have a great weekend.

  8. Spoken like a teacher :). I love the change that happens in October in Arizona even though we don’t have the leaf changes I loved from NJ. Looking forward to your fall and holiday posts for sure! 🙂

    • such a geeky teacher I am, LOL. I love driving and looking at all the leaves…the best part. Thanks so much babe…(HUGS) super emotional right now…sniffles.

Would love to read your thoughts
