Thursday Thirteen- Thirteen Signs that Fall is Here!

This week, I decided to list out thirteen signs that fall is definitely here! If you would like to read more Thursday Thirteens or participate, please click here

1. Everywhere I step, there are leaves on the ground! I love the crunchy sound that they make and I really wish that I had a rake!

2. The persimmons on the persimmon tree are very orange and ready to be picked.

3. When I wake up in the morning, I am actually cold instead of hot and am searching for more blankets.

4. The maintenance man has to come by and turn on the heater!!

5. It is now a necessity to wear socks so that my feet won't freeze.

6. I no longer find it necessary to shave my legs every day. (no more shorts!)

7. All of my friends are asking me when I am going to be making them scarves and hats for this winter because they already want to wear them.

8. While I don't need them quite yet, I have begun to look for my gloves.

9. Everywhere I look, people are sporting sweaters- yay for cold weather!

10. When I go outside at night, there is a nice fog in the sky.

11. Safeway has started stocking pumpkins and is currently offering a free pumpkin with purchase.

12. People are starting to put up Halloween decorations.

And finally, number 13- Because it is already October!!!!

What are the signs that fall has come to your area?

Great list.....those crunchy leaves are the best - no raking required, just slosh through them until there is enough to justify calling it a pile and then jump on in!! :-)

But the best thing on your list was definitely the no shaving!!!!

Happy TT!
