This will shock most who know me . . . but I'm ready for summer to fade away and Autumn to arrive! Cooler weather, less yard work, Dewey's Readathon, and the beginning of the holiday season . . . (That doesn't mean I don't have a plan to celebrate the "last summer holiday" - Labor Day . . . and I will blog about that later.)
Recently I decided I wanted to bring back the old fun in the book club I share with my sister, Tami. She agreed and we plan to spend the next Sister Weekend reading! If you are familiar with Dewey's Readathon you will know that it's 24 hours of reading mixed with hourly challenges and the chance to win prizes for entering. It's the best part of October every year!
But I am feeling nostalgic and want to bring back some other things that were fun a few years back. 2012 was a great year for me. I also got into blogging then and had a lot of fun with it. That reminded me of the fun I used to have with Trish's Pin-It Do-It Challenges. Find things on Pinterest that you would like to try and then blog about your results! Sure hope Trish does an Autumn Challenge 2015!
As I write this short blog post - I'm watching an episode of Extreme Weight Loss which once again puts it right there in my face - the need to take off extra pounds for a healthier lifestyle. I am nostalgic about that also as I was able to have successful loss of 30 pounds a few years back and since then have gained back some. Time for some walks in the countryside and tours around on my bicycle! Maybe even a hike or two this fall.
It's soon a new season yes - and I welcome the change. It was not my best summer by far. How will you be spending your Autumn days? What do you like best about this time of year? Do you decorate your home for Fall?
I'd love to hear!
