Fall Days

I am not a big fan of getting out of bed in the dark, especially when my wife has taken the day off and she stays in bed. You would think she would get out of bed and cook me some bacon and eggs while I am getting ready. (smile) I am loving these fall days. As one of the local weathermen said, “It’s like someone flipped a switch and turned off summer”. We seem to have gone right into spring with little transition. This is my favorite time of year. My wife and I got up early on Saturday and picked up my granddaughter. We went out for breakfast and then we came back to my house to get the Halloween decorations out of my shed. It was a perfect day to do so. She gets so excited when this time of year arrives and we begin the process of decorating for the holidays. We usually start early because my wife is over the top when it comes to the holidays. Plus, the weekends seem to fill up quickly with things to do, places to go, and various family activities. Before you know what has happened all the leaves are off the trees and the cold winds of winter have arrived. After a day of decorating on Saturday, Chloe sat still long enough to watch a Disney movie called “Chimpanzee” before we finally went to bed. Believe it or not, going to bed was her idea. However, she got no argument from Paw Paw and Meemo.
