Fall is my favorite season and the whether is already starting to cool down. The night comes earlier and the morning comes later. With Fall comes another of my favorites, Halloween. I love to take my Niece and Nephew trick or treating every year. I also like to go through and give our home a fall cleaning and get it ready for the Fall and Winter. Our Winters are not near as bad as Michigan but we have been known to be housebound for a day or two. What about you? Are you looking forward to the Fall? Is it a good time of year for you? Share what you like or dislike about it. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I love fall, I love the smells and the sites of it all. I also do a fall cleaning of my house as well. It's the last time I will be able to shampoo the carpets till spring, cause in the cold air, it takes a day for them to dry. I also get more energy in the fall and I just feel better.

changing leaves - This is a road that I dream of driving down! The colors are so brilliant!
I love the fall! I love to watch the trees change colors, it makes beatiful scenery! I also start getting excited about Thanksgiving and Christmas coming. We drive around on the weekends and just look at the different trees changing colors and how it makes a certain place look so different!

I loved fall when I still lived in Missouri. Now that I'm in North Dakota I don't like it as much. It means that the time to play outside and go for walks is coming to an end. My son is just 19 months old, so I don't let him play outside for long once it starts getting cold. I don't want to put him in the stroller, because I know he would get cold if we went on our normal hour long walks. It's only about 55 degrees here right now, so we aren't going for a walk today. My son will get to play outside for a while, but that's it. For Halloween, I will have to make sure to dress him in really warm clothes so I can take him to a few houses to go trick or treating. :)

I love the fall, I can't wait. I plan on doing a lot of playing outside with my son. If I can afford it I'm thinking about taking him to a hay ride or a pumpkin patch or something. One of those things that he's never done before. I love Halloween, it's my favorite holiday. I think this year I'm going to dress my son up as either a cat or a bat and I'm going to dress up as a witch. I also look forward to hot mulled apple cider and baking... and hockey season.

I am so excited for Fall to arrive! I love the season, and I absolutely love Halloween. This year depending upon my daughters grades, we are going to throw her a halloween party, and I am loving it! We are so excited about decorating the house and I can't wait until the kids come to the door to go trick or treating!

I love it for the cool crisp air every evening. I hate it as it means the end of my gardens and flowers. But it makes me think of new layouts for next years gardens etc. It is cool here now in Minnesota finally. Supposed to get frost next weekend possibly. So I have to get my grandsons over as they really wanted to be sure they got to pick my apples. Glad to see ya hung around here also. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I love fall. I love the changing of the leaves and the chill in the air. I also look forward to winter which is actually my favorite season. I think growing up as a child I had so much fun in the winter when my parents didn't have to go to work. It was always a family day and we would spend it all day doing fun things.

I'm looking for cooler temperatures! We are still seeing the 90's during the day but the evenings are cooling off to the 60's. It also takes longer to warm up each day so there is hope! I also love watching the leaves on the trees turn to beautiful colors. It's always an awesome event. I wish fall lasted longer!

Yes, I am. It is my favorite season to. The best in fact. I like to see the leafs changing colors. I like the wind blowing and I try to take a walk to feel the wind in my face. I just love it. I take out my fall clothes and hanging in the rest to the closet. I shop new shoes, and clothes to be ready for the winter. I shop more in this season than in others.

You know I've always said I was a summer girl, But.. the older I get the less I think that is true. I am a born and Bred California girl. I spent many many summers in the Bakersfield area (Central Calif), and I was one of the ones that said "But it's a DRY HEAT" ugggggh 110 is hot I don't care what kind of heat it is!. I now live in orth San Diego County about 11 miles in from the Ocean and we had 100 degree days here too recently WITH humidity and lord I thought I would die. Being this close to the ocean we don't have air conditioning and man-o-man I thought some of those nights would never end. But temperatures aside, this body no longer can even think of wearing a pair of shorts or a bathing suit. I don't do the beach other than at night. You slather sunscreen every time you have to go out the door. You get your shower make up and hair done and your sweaty and sticky. So I am still trying to convince myself that I am a "Summer girl" when in fact I think Fall is really what I like. I love the girl crsip mornings, the cleaner air, the soft breezez and the 70-80 degree days. We rarely get extreme weather here in Vista but the cold cold nights and mornings I can live without because of the old bones. We get some leaves turning and the smells in the air of fireplaces from time to time so Yes I think I can be converted to a Fall girl at this stage of my life. Oh and..... this multi coloreed rose that you use for your Avatar, is there such a thing? I recently saw another picture of one and someone said it was a real rose that is available to grow? Would you know if this is true?

I love the Fall. It is getting cooler here. The leaves will be turning soon and everything will be beautiful. I can now walk to work without arriving looking like I have been through a sprinkler system. I love to watch the kids when they go out on Halloween and now my son is getting old enough to enjoy this as well. We may take him around the neighborhood this year. The only dislike I have about Fall is that it turns into winter. I hate the cold and stiff joints that I get in the winter.
