Is Fall in the air??

I have been thinking about this for the past few days. Is Fall in the air? The reason I ask this question is because here in NC it has been very comfortable as far as the weather. We have had some very cool mornings and evenings. Not the kind of cool where you want to put on a light jacket though. But comfortable compaired to what we have been having.

I noticed the other day while driving to town a little woolly worm crawling on the road. They say you can tell what kind of winter you will have by the colors on the worm. I dont know much about that, but it was copper in color and I think that means a mild winter. Winter here I think is pretty mild anyway. If we get snow we get all excited about it. It hardly ever snows here, but it does get cold. This is not the one I saw,just wanted to add a pic. I found out that here in North Carolina we have a Woolly Worm Festival in Banner Elk, thats up near Boone I think. I have been through there once. Just passed through.

All the talk about Fall on other blogs has me longing for it. I love the warm days and cool evenings. Not to mention all the trees changing colors, pumpkins, mums and pansies, and not to forget Halloween. I just love Fall all together. It's my favorite time of year, next to Christams to decorate.

I have my ways of knowing when Fall is just ahead. We have a pear tree in our yard, that is about 100 years old. I know Fall is on it's way when it's leaves turn. Its the first one to start turning. And that tree has been loaded with fruit this year. So much that 2 limbs have broken out already. This is the second time since we have lived here that it has done that. All of the fruit bearing trees have been loaded this year. Too bad I dont make jellies, and preserves and such. I would have more than enough.

I've been searching for songs to put on my playlist that deal with Fall. That's kinda hard to do. I dont really know that many except for Over the River and Through the Woods. If ya have any suggestions just post'em for me. Halloween would be good to. I just want to get us in the mood. If we arent already there.

Well, I have rambled on enough. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.

I just made the remark to my hubby today that the "feel" of fall was in the air and it feels that way this evening too and I'm ready!

It feels like fall here, too. I said to Jer on Saturday that the sky looks like it does in September. The air has changed. Some of the leaves are falling off of the trees. Jer saw a wooly caterpillar crossing the road on Saturday. I can't believe how fast summer went!!!!!!!
