I know, it’s been fall for a while now. But here in Tennessee we are really starting to see a change in scenery. These beautiful tree lined country roads are even more gorgeous with the reds and oranges. Above is a video I took driving home (I wasn’t driving no worries). I can’t love it enough.
I’m still unpacking so I can’t decorate as much as I would like for the autumn season- but I did finally find a little flag that says “Happy Fall Y’all”.
I don’t know why but it just makes me happy. Our big oak tree out back is starting to change colors- it’s going to be glorious.
The temps have dropped again. While I really don’t like the cold, I appreciate the reduction in bugs. We had a weird little warm spell last week which resulted in a spider and ant invasion. I’m not exaggerating when I say we had at least a hundred spiders get into our house this past week. Our mud room looked like a spider graveyard with all the dead stomped on spiders. We think a nest must have hatched on our back porch. And the ants! Good grief they wouldn’t stop. Luckily we managed to keep them out of our food but they did get into the puppies food bowl. I hate spraying bug killer in the house- but after the ant bait gel couldn’t keep up I ended spraying a little in the main entrance point in the kitchen. I guess in the spring when it starts warming up again and then when the heat and humidity return- I’ll have a big job on my hands to keep my house pest free. Welcome to the country right?
