Welcome, Fall!

I love the fall. The only thing I honestly hate about it is back to school time. I love everything else about it--the cooler temps, the bundling up in sweaters, the colors, smells, fooods, holidays... Everything.

Except back to school. Why must that ruin the season for me?

Anyway, Friday was one of those perfect fall days. Well, it poured here. I mean, poured & poured. We're talking a football game that was cancelled because they had 3 1/2 inches of rain on their field. That's how much rain we got. But I love it. I made a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup yesterday for supper. There was a small bowl leftover, which Brittany had for breakfast today. (yes, I said soup for breakfast!)

So this morning, we had a community yard sale. Okay. I am so NOT a seller. An hour into the sale, my poor kids only had 35 cents in their little money dish--to share. Things picked up eventually. Jamie sold a table saw, which was one of the two big-ticket items we had. So all together, we made about $60 or $70. Not bad. But I much rather would have stayed in bed sleeping.

Speaking of sleeping, the girls & I were so exhausted, we laid in the living room with Tucker & Casey, & fell asleep. It was nice. Their cheer games were cancelled, so we didn't have to rush around for that. As much as I love their games, it was nice to just spend a Saturday relaxing & doing nothing but lay around. We all need that once in a while.
