Sept. 22- The First Day of Fall

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

In my neck of the woods,most leaves are still green, although, the birch leaves have begun to yellow and fall.
What comes to mind when you think of Fall? To me, I think of the Canadian geese we have been seeing alot of lately, apples, pumpkins, smells of apple spice,falling leaves, hot chocolate and Halloween, to name a few.
As I sit outdoors on my back deck, ( my favourite spot to write), thoughts turn from the first day of Fall to Winter being around the bend. I don't know where summer went to.
Gerry will soon be getting the backyard ready by putting  away the lounge chair, patio set, and lawn ornaments. He will winterize the trailer on the outside by sealing patio doors, installing insulated boxes over our air conditioning units, shutting off water valves and draining water hoses.
The vehicles will also need their own looking after- including, installing timers for block heater cords, removing summer windshield fluid and installing winter fluid, and checking antifreeze to insure to -40. Oh the good ole north!
What  does Fall mean to you?
