It’s that time of year again. What time is that you say? Time for apple cider, apple butter, apple pie, cinnamon apple scones, pork roast with apples, Waldorf salad. Need I go on? It’s fall! It’s apple time.
I don’t know about your house, but in my home the last few weekends have been crazy. Whether it was closing the pool, buying my son cozy new sweaters or shopping with my daughter for the perfect pair of leather boots, I’ve barely had any time to relax and just take everything in. The other day, though, as I walked to my car in the brisk morning air, it finally hit me: fall is finally here.
I love the fall season, but I also hate it. Raking leaves, seeding your lawn and worst of all cleaning your gutters are all regular occurrences. I can’t stand cleaning my gutters. I’m not afraid of heights, but I’ve seen enough episodes of America’s Funniest Videos to know that they’re an accident waiting to happen.
Saturday was the first official day of fall according to the calendar although many of us feel like fall comes even sooner with the advent of school days, football weekends and pumpkin flavored treats on the store shelves. But probably in the next few weeks a trip to the basement or the attic will be in order as you pull out some of those autumn decorations. That’s why we thought it was a perfect time to share this video from Howcast on using autumn leaves in your home decor.
