Now that it’s September and the beginning of fall-like weather( it was 10 C overnight!) I put out the fall decor. Pictured here is a dried fall-themed wreath that I hung on the front door.
Here is part of the fall leaves wreath that I hung in the window. I tried to take a photo of the entire thing but it’s in a window and kept making a glare and the photos kept showing up weird and you could also see me in the reflection in the glass so this is what you get.
This is the scarecrow and leaves garland that I also put up on our third floor balcony. It’s hard to see but if you look closely you can see it. The scarecrow is in the middle and the garland goes all along the top of the railing. I keep it up until 30 October and then I take it down that day, before “Satan’s Day” (Hallowe’en) as I don’t want people to wrongly think it’s decoration for that; it’s just for fall.
Here is a close-up of the scarecrow’s face but from the side as I had to go up on the balcony and actually lean partway over the side to get this shot so you’re welcome. I risked life and limb for you. I told my mother before I went up if she sees something come flying down and hears a “thud!” that would be me falling off the balcony so to call 9-1-1. I can only imagine it: cause of death: misadventure trying to get a photo for blog. Yeah, that sounds about right.
I’m sad to see summer go but I do also like fall, too. I like the cool, crisp, brisk air, the pretty coloured leaves, everything pumpkin: pies, muffins, bread, Dairy Queen Blizzard, etc..plus my fave. “Tiger Tail” ice cream flavour, wearing heavy pullover sweaters, my Ugg boots, my knitted Rasta hats and poncho, flannel bed sheets, etc. Summer and fall are my 2 fave. seasons.
Someone also took my Colgate toothpaste for their 3 day adventure too so I had to use the gross Crest(yuck!) that was left behind but other than that it was nice having a break with hardly anyone here and not running out of towels or hot water, and I’m so dark now with my tan I could pass for a Filipino, and I wondered why as well the 7.1 earthquake in New Zealand wasn’t mentioned on the news….and then it occurred to me that maybe it hasn’t happened yet; that it’s another one of those things where I know things and “see” it ahead of time, before it actually takes place, even though I’m sure I read about it someplace…I guess we’ll just have to wait and see….
