Fall Already?

Somehow, my tulip tree missed the memo that said it's still SUMMER. I'm SO not ready for Fall. Yet.

What! That's crazy, it's suppose to get back up to 90 by the end of the week. Poor Menopausal Mother Nature. Ol' gal is really getting up there.

:)

Elizabeth said...

We had a couple of teaser fall days last week that were absolutely beautiful, but now it's back to hot and humid again. I'm ready for fall, but always sad to see summer end.

And then there was 4... said...

What is that? It's still summer!!

mannequin said...

Same here Angie! Our nights are so chilly that I must wear a sweater outside.

What's a tulip tree?

I'm picturing a giant oak with big yellow tulips but somehow I don't think so.

mommaof4wife2r said...

i agree...fall already???!! i love summer too much...and the bad thing about fall...winter is next and that means snow. yikes. and a big fat boooooo!

Carrie said...

In the words of my husband, "Carrie,It smells like football season this morning." When translated this means, fall is coming quickly. Yikes!

mommaof4wife2r said...

sorry to double comment...u can hat eme later! ha! anyway, just wondering if you made your blog button or got it from somewhere. i absolutely love ur style...and want to make one for my blog! :)

Kelly said...

Me either. Right now we are waiting to see what "Fay" does to us. Schools are closed. Doh!

Shannon said...

I'm right there with you. A few of ours have lost some leaves too. I hope that doesn't mean they are dead from three years of drought here in NC.
Here we are in the last days of summer vaca and can't go swimming because G split his chin open and had it glued shut the other day. :(

Adelaine said...

I LOVE fall! Bring it on!!!!

I do agree that it is sad to see summer leave but for me, only that school has started and we have to be more regimented and organized. I won't miss the humidity and heat of summer at all though!

stefanie said...

I have yellow leaves all over my back yard too...and the air does have a different smell.

I love fall! Bring it on!

sassy stephanie said...

I llllloooooovvvvveee fall. But, round here, in the swealtering state, fall usually does not hit until about november 22nd and lasts for about 2 days and then we go straight into winter. *sign

But I still love Texas.

Jaysi said...

I'll trade places with you!!! I would give my right hand for fall!!!

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

Its cool here today and I'm thinking the same thing!

Quirky said...

Last night I closed the bedroom window because it got so chilly (despite the fact that it was 90 yesterday).

We live across the street from a private elementary school.. this week was the start of 7:30am car doors slamming and kids screaming with excitement for the new school year. It definitely feels like fall.

Fall is my favorite, so I can't complain :)

Melissa said...

Poor little tulips. No one told them it was okay to hang out a while longer.
They would have been gone here already with all this rain....
I have pools in my backyard. Mud pools.

thatgirlblogs (shelly) said...

I'm really into Fall this year, bring it on! It's still in the 90s here...

Aubrey said...

We had some crazy cold weather last weekend but no leaves falling yet. Of course, this week has been high 80s low 90s. Gotta love CO weather!

Live.Love.Eat said...

For some reason I am sooo ready for Fall, more than usual.

Stephanie said...

It's been getting very cool in the evenings lately. I'm ok with that. I do love fall, but hate what is to follow. So, I'm with you....SO not ready!

Crazymamaof6 said...

really? that is crazy! leaves don't fall here until January. but then again we kind of skip over fall.

Jacki said...

Me either. This morning leaving for work it was like 65-degrees! I needed a sweater!

So much for global warming...

Rhonda said...

OH NO!!! Not yet!!!

the schirano triplets said...

noooo....!

Munchkins and Music said...

Noooo! It's gone by too fast!! But fall is so pretty. :)

Molly said...

We had two sizzling days at the weekend and then Monday morning I almost put my heating on! I am so not ready for fall yet!

Cristin said...

There's a little chill to the air today... I LOVE Fall, it's my favorite.. sorry, but I'm ready to Summer to be OVER.

Philigry said...

i know, we have some trees changing already here! it am not ready either.

Mamarazzi said...

FALL!!! i am sooo NOT ready either!!

Melissa said...

Ack! That is just wrong. Get the tape out and tape those babies back on the tree!

Are You Serious! said...

♥ That's just crazy! I cooled way down this week around here! It's been in the mid to high 60's... Which I can't say I haven't been enjoying! It's been really nice... :)

Mandy said...

Your grass still knows what time of the year it is. :) My hubby would be "green" with envy as he tries so hard to keep our grass from dying and it never fails...

And then there was 4... said...

Hey Angie,
she was 35 weeks, 4lbs 10oz. she spent 5 days in the NICU. I would e-mail directly, but can't finger out how.
talk too you soon-sandy

Laurie said...

Fall is my favorite so it wouldn't bother me if it came a little early. We haven't really had summer anyway. I just wouldn't want fall early bringing the "W" word any sooner. I love the crisp days, just warm enough, comfortable at night. love it.

Annikke said...

Last weekend when it was so cold here I realized how NOT ready for fall I am. Ick.

Scary Mommy said...

You have 5 kids and aren't ready for fall?! I suddenly feel like a shitty mom. I'm counting the SECONDS!!!! :)

Debateur said...

Some of our trees are confused like that too. Just means we get to rake twice...

Connie said...

I lvoe fall....but we still have several weeks of summer around these parts....won't it start getting colder for you soon??

Mark and Kiss said...

Oh, I am enjoying a little break in the 100 degree days, but I don't want summer to end either. Especially since after Fall comes winter, and I am never ready for that....You have a tulip tree?

Shannon said...

NOOOOOOoooooo! Say it ain't so. I am NOT ready for fall. Did you hear me Mother Nature? I said I AM NOT READY FOR FALL!

Zen Ventures said...

Yeah so do I. I was driving home yesterday and saw a lot of the trees along the road has already started changing color. What's goin on?! Btw, thanks for sharing in my little woe. I do appreciate it. Thank you for checking my etsy store too. That was so nice of you. Thank you...

Heather said...

Why, oh why are there leaves on the ground? Seriously!! Now I'm freaking out.

Neil said...

Unbelievable. It's been in the mid-80s here for nearly two weeks, though (normally in the upper-90s or 100s), so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Your lawn is gorgeous BTW ... my husband would be super-jealous!

Jocasta said...

Oh yes - I'm so ready for spring!

Supercool Hotmama said...

Fall. Hmmmm, What's that?

Laurie said...

I could not agree more. Summer flew by!!! I am so not looking forward to cold weather and the dreaded s word. That would be snow.

Mekhismom said...

What is a tulip tree? I have never heard of one. And has it been really dry where you are? Perhaps that is why the tree is losing leaves.

RR Mama said...

I could only wish for cooler days. I am in the land of 458 degree temps. Oh so stinkin' hot and humid to boot. Makes for some great hair days.

beth said...

I am so not ready for summer to end this year!

Robyn said...

Gulp, I thought the same thing today.

Gunnisac Sandersons said...

Holy Ned!!!! I agree I am not ready for fall. I still feel like summer is just around the corner. YIKES>

Octamom said...

Are you bragging about your distance from the equator again?...Girl....

I've heard of fall--I think we have it here for about 5 days between summer and summer...

Thanks for the kind comments on our anniversary!
Blessings!

Migraine Mom said...

I'm right there with you...I'm not ready for Fall yet! can you believe it will be September is two weeks???

Sarah Brooks said...

Oh will you send some of those leaves my way please?! I love fall!!! I'M SO READY!

Robin said...

I know, I can't believe it! There are trees turning here, and my vacation ends in 6 more days. And then, even worse, four days after that the kids go back to school and summer's really and truly over. I am SO not ready!

Helene said...

I just saw Halloween outfits at Babies R Us...and it's still August!!!! That just feels SO wrong! I can't think of fall when it's still 99 degrees outside! I'm right there with you on not being ready for fall!

girlytwins said...

nooooo...Say it isn't so. I am so not ready for fall. We had to put sweatshirts on tonight for our walk. That did not make me smile.

Susan said...

I love fall and am so ready. We have been enjoying 50 degree temps at night and it feels so great...wonderful sleeping weather.

TONYA said...

No way. It can't be. It's just trying to fool you.

MoziEsmé said...

Those seasons change way too fast!

chellekay said...

that is crazy! It is still summer!!!!

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

I haven't seen it, but a gal from play group today said that she saw that the leaves were turning on the trees round here too! She said that she had recently learned that the leaves start to turn when the sunlight starts to decrease.

GoteeMan said...

no. say it ain't so...

well at least soon I can "fall back" then... I could use another hour...

Casey's trio said...

I love fall!!!!

les_mason_curt said...

Well, at least you have rain and green grass. we have not had consistant rain and our grass in our yard is so crunchy that Mason will not walk on it. he tells me"ouch, Momma, ouch!" I love the fall, it is my favorite. your grass looks like i could take a nap on it! ahh, i think i can remember what a nap is....

Rhea said...

What the heck, tulip tree? You speaking another language or what?! lol

They start selling fall clothes in the stores around here and it's still in the 90's. CRAZY!

Cecily R said...

See, and I was just thinking that I was so READY for fall to come!

Laura said...

I think I could have warm weather year round and never grow tired of it. I am just NOT a winter gal.

Heather said...

eww, yuck. no kidding.

armyfamilyok said...

We have a huge tree in our front yard. It's losing it's leaves too. I think it just got too hot and went for so long without rain. At least I hope that's what it was. I'm NOT ready for fall!!

Sydney said...

It's feeling like fall here too. It makes me sad. We had 100+ inches of snow this winter, had the rainiest June on record, then had like a month and a half of summer. Now it's done. There's already a tree changing colors in the neighborhood. My tomatoes haven't even ripened, and it dropped to the low 60s overnight. Good sleeping weather, but I want summer a little bit longer! :-(

Melissa said...

Our trees loose leaves all year round. It's crazy.
