The Change of Seasons....

OK~ I'm really not ready for Fall to arrive, but I really have no choice. A record low of 27 degrees this morning~ just Monday it was 91 degrees!  My feet are not ready to slip into wool socks and closed in shoes in September~ they still want their sandals!

And then I have the request, "Where's the hand sanitizer?" Just a reminder that the season of ailments is also here. The coughing is driving me nuts in this house...and the sore throats......It's only September!

The combines will be rolling here very soon.  This was what the soybean fields around here looked like before the 27 degree temps- lots of color...not so much today...they are dying quickly.

Mother Nature has determined that our growing season in North Iowa has ended, too early in this Mom's opinion. On the sweet side of this....that crazy lawn mower can stay in the shed for 8 months and this Mom won't care! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?


  1. Brrr... And I thought the 41 degrees here was bad. Guess I better pack my warm stuff for my trip ;)

  2. I'm right there with ya Sara!! I wasn't ready for my boys to start school back in the middle of August and now Fall is upon us. Furthermore Mother Nature has been off her rocker this year and eveyone in the world has felt it. Harvest will be interesting this year and I doubt any farmer is going to get a bumper crop. I feel so sorry for them because that's what feeds their families.


I always love feedback on my blog!
