First Day of Fall

Today is the first day of fall!!! It really doesn't FEEL like it though (it's still kinda warm in most areas of the country). I know there is a lot of technical science stuff behind the change of seasons but I prefer to think of it simply as a beautiful change to our everyday scenery. It will be very nice to see the colors in the landscape change and to feel the air turn crisp. The fall season brings to mind so many different things - football (yes, I know, I have mentioned that before!!), pumpkin carving, a warm mug of apple cider, gingerbread cookies, long walks in the park while wearing a SWEATER. What does autumn call to mind for you? It's a little premature but as soon as I can pile up some leaves, I'm jumping right in!!!

Enjoy the rest of your week everyone and be sure to keep it clean!!

It's here!!!!! Football season is upon us. I know football isn't for everyone but for many, it signifies the end of summer. There is nothing better than going to a football game on a chilly Friday night with a thermos of hot chocolate and a blanket. Don't like braving the elements to take in a game? Watch it at home with your family or a few friends. Prefer getting in on the action? Play some flag football over the weekend. Do you like being more hands on? Help coach a pee-wee football team. One can learn a lot from watching football. It takes teamwork and a combined effort to get that ball into the endzone or to keep your opponent from scoring. Football is a little bit like life - you have to have good teammates to support you, it takes a lot of work to keep moving forward but every once in a while, if you are lucky, you catch a Hail Mary pass and score the winning touchdown.

So go on, get out there! Toss the ball around. Get some grass stains on your jersey. Afterall, life's a game so have some fun!

Until next time, keep it clean (ish - grass stains, remember?).
