I haven't been so thankful for a Friday in a really long time!
It seems that Fall has arrived (for a few days anyway).

1.  Have you started to wear clothes from your fall wardrobe yet?

2.  Do you even have a "fall wardrobe"?

3.  Yard work & maintenance, love it or hate it?

4.  What is one thing that you really look forward to in the fall? One thing that you dread?

1.  Have you started to wear clothes from your fall wardrobe yet? -- Ummm, no.  It's still hot as hades here.

2.  Do you even have a "fall wardrobe"? -- yes.

3.  Yard work & maintenance, love it or hate it? -- I tolerate it.

4.  What is one thing that you really look forward to in the fall? One thing that you dread? -- The answer to both of these is marching band.   I enjoy seeing kids doing something they love. And I love to watch the band.  But I dread the long days, the late nights, the fees ...

<<4.  Looking forward to fall foods... soups and stew, using the oven, fall smells.  >>

Also one of my favorite things about fall and winter....I love making soup and stews.  The kids are already starting to request things I make in the fall/winter for dinners.  Yum.

It seems that Fall has arrived (for a few days anyway).

We had that earlier in the week, it seems summer has returned again and isn't quite ready to let go despite the calendar.

1.  Have you started to wear clothes from your fall wardrobe yet?

No, not yet...I'm still in mostly spring/summer stuff.

2.  Do you even have a "fall wardrobe"?

I do, they are darker colors and heavier fabrics versus the lighter/brighter colors and fabrics.  

3.  Yard work & maintenance, love it or hate it?

I don't do much of it but I have always liked mowing the yard, it's lovely and quiet.

4.  What is one thing that you really look forward to in the fall? One thing that you dread?

Cooler weather is good and the crazy fall schedule is something I usually dread.  One more year of a crazy schedule!

1.  Have you started to wear clothes from your fall wardrobe yet?  Yes, I'm inside but all my schools are chilly.  

2.  Do you even have a "fall wardrobe"?  I have summer wardrobe & the rest of the year wardrobe.  I feel pretty confident I can put away my sandals & put my shorts & tank tops to the back of my closet.  Actually haven't done that yet.

3.  Yard work & maintenance, love it or hate it?  I like planting flowers & herbs and taking care of them.  I don't like to weed & I don't weed much because most of my plants are in baskets.  Come to think of it even in the one bed I have I hardly weeded at all because not that many came up this year.  Mowing & edging & all that crap, I don't like.  Dh does all that.

4.  What is one thing that you really look forward to in the fall? One thing that you dread?  Fall is nice enough, our fall colors are not that great.  Our leaves only turn yellow--looks pretty on the mountains.  But I miss the diversity.  Dread the snow & cold that's coming.

Have you started to wear clothes from your fall wardrobe yet?  SORTA -it's int he 60s here and cool and dry - I still am in sandals but I wore a cardigan with my skirt 

2.  Do you even have a "fall wardrobe"? not really -- life in New England is all about the layering... so most of my pieces except for shorts and tank tops and really heavy sweaters work all year round

3.  Yard work & maintenance, love it or hate it? hate it which is why we own a condo :-)

4.  What is one thing that you really look forward to in the fall? One thing that you dread? the best cortland apples from my favorite orchard.. seeing the cross country meets at the park near us...foliage.. DREAD - knowing how short the glory weeks are and how fast the snow will be coming on its heels.

1.  I wore a light sweater yesterday.  So, yeah, I guess that I have.

2.  I have a handful of sweaters and bunch of scarves.  A few darker and/or earthtoned blouses.  I wear layers, so my "fall wardrobe" is the layers added to my summer one.

3.  I hate the idea of yard work, and procrastinate... but when it comes down to actually doing it, it's not that bad.

4.  Looking forward to fall foods... soups and stew, using the oven, fall smells. 
I love the rain, but dread having wet feet.

1.  Have you started to wear clothes from your fall wardrobe yet?

Nope, too warm, still have AC on. 

2.  Do you even have a "fall wardrobe"?

My "fall" wardrobe is basically what I wear for fall, winter and spring. 

3.  Yard work & maintenance, love it or hate it?

I do the weeding and planting. Hate the weeding, planting is ok because I only have to do it once. Dh does the rest of the yard and I don't think he minds as I never hear him complain about it lol.

4.  What is one thing that you really look forward to in the fall? Football, decorating, anything pumpkin.

One thing that you dread? The weather getting colder and turning into winter.
