Five on Friday: Signs of Summer’s Goodbye

Trying to get back into the swing of blogging a bit more often.  I used to really enjoy participating in a Five on Friday link up (no longer in existence). Thought it would be fun to just go ahead and do one of those posts today.

Everywhere I look I see signs of Summer leaving and Fall arriving (and it’s bit too early, I’d like to add!).  Even the weather this morning, cool and crisp. The kind of weather that whispers: you should be outside…so the cat and I took a little walk around the yard.

Here’s what we found:

ONE: Danger on the Deck!

Our resident squirrels are busy in the Oak tree. And it rains acorns on our deck. Makes it easy to identify with Chicken Little. Sometimes, I think the squirrels are actually throwing the acorns at us.

TWO: Overgrown Gardens

It’s August and it’s been either too hot or raining most of this month to pay attention to the flower or our joke of a vegetable garden. And of course, we’ve been busy on the 2 other days the weather was right. 

THREE: Mums the word!

I gave into temptation and bought a couple of pots of mums at grocery store. Fall flowers, a bit early but they were cheap! More mums may or may not be in my future.

After our walk, I returned inside where a few signs of fall’s arrival also appear as I cling to my hope by burning my summer scented candles. I’ll change scents after Labor Day.

FOUR: Football Season is Serous Stuff around Town

I found myself sucked into the excitement and making this random grocery store purchase:   Supposedly, it tastes like Frosted Flakes. We haven’t opened the box yet.

And while the city takes pro-football very serious, it’s also high school football season aka marching band season. Fall is very much around the corner if I’m slowing down when driving by the high school to see if I can hear the band practicing out on the field. (I did hear them! Sign of a great band season to come.)

    You are speaking my language, my friend!
    I was outside with the pup this morning, and I felt the same thing: fall is near!
    Hoping that will make me feel more like walking in the mornings.
    I love love love hearing high school marching bands!
    It is so nostalgic. Brings tears to my eyes!
    I am waiting for Labor Day to start burning my fall scents too.
    I am not big on the summer ones.
    Have a great weekend!

      I need to get back to doing a bit of walking, hoping to go on a few nature walks if it stays cool and dry (not big on mud). My sons aren’t big fans of my ocean scented candles around here either. Hope you have a great weekend as well!
