This has been the hottest and driest summer on record in Texas. Most people didn't even get to enjoy a nice veggie garden, because it was just too hot. The kids can't go outside and play like they want, because after 5 minutes they are sweating and begging to come inside. Poor Little Man has his daddy's skin, and starts to look like a giant red jelly bean if he gets hot. They've been so hot, they don't even want to play in the water!

No, I'm ready for Fall - it is my favorite time of year.
It reminds me of my childhood, taking vacations to Red River with my family every year.
I adore fall's color pallete.

I love snuggling up in big giant sweaters.
I love putting the heavy quilt back on my bed, even though Barb Wire Man says he still burns to death under it.
|The Star Pattern Quilt, from TalesofTime, is absolutely lovely. At $70, you can't find a better deal!|
I love watching the leaves fall to the ground, though this year, the lack of water has made most of the leaves already fall off the tees.
I love to bake in the fall.
I love Thanksgiving.
Barb Wire Man and I celebrate our anniversary in the fall, even though I always have to remind him what day it is.
I love the gray skies.
I love the fields that lay barren, waiting to be tilled up for next year.
I love sitting at the table helping Flower with her homework.
I love, love love giant bowls of stew. The rest of my family hates it, but I don't care. I make it anyway.
Yes, I miss the fall. And I can't wait until this summer is over. What are some of your favorite things about fall?
