It's Fall!

I just love this time of year. The temperatures are great, you can wear long or short sleeves, the colors of the leaves are fabulous, and of course, I LOVE the pumpkin patches and apple orchards. It's become a requirement with our family that we go to the apple orchard and local pumpkin patch at least once. On Tuesday, the weather was great and we decided to go. There is a little pumpkin farm not too far from us, and it had been just a little farm where you could buy pumpkins, pay on the honor system in a cash box, and they had a turkey and rabbits for the kids to look at. I had heard they had expanded their farm, and boy did they! They have an actual store now, a little village for the kids complete with mini-houses, hay bale tower, and more animals. It was a ton of fun.

Mmmm, I absolutely love this time of year as well! I don't know anyone who doesn't. It's just the best season of the year.

Now I need to remember to mark down on the calendar when we go to the pumpkin patch!

What fun! Yesterday was our first "cooler" day here in S. Fl... that means that I was able to wait for my kids at piano lessons in the car... still necessary to be in the shade for sure, and I could roll down the windows and wait without actually dying or turning on the AC. LOL

It would be nice to see the leaves changing... there is one spot in a certain park in our town that you can sort of get the feel, some years in January. I still wouldn't trade it for winters, though! ;)

Family love, to me, is the most valuable thing you have in your life. If you didn't have your family, you wouldn't go anywhere. When you were down, they were there for you. When you needed something they tried to make that happen. When you think you don't have a family, you do. All you need to do is just give them a little call and they will be there for you. I got kicked out of the house when I was 18 and I had nowhere to go. I was around a wrong crowd and got into drugs. My addiction to meth was so bad, I nearly died. I realized that my life wasn't going anywhere and I needed help. The first people that I called and the only people that I called was my mom and dad. They were very happy to help me and got me into a drug rehab program. I am currently on the program and I can already tell that things are getting back to normal. I'm getting my life back, and most important I'm getting my family back.
