The Signs of Fall

I woke up this morning with thoughts about Autumn/Fall, a season that not all countries got the chance to experience. In the tropical climate there is basically two seasons, rainy days and summer days. There is no such thing as winter and fall like here in the US. Fall or autumn season does definitely has its own unique characteristics and interestings facts.

My hubby and I started talking about the things that change around us when its fall, and here are some of the things that we noticed as:

The Signs of Fall

People started cleaning up the rain gutters of their homes and replacing new gutter screens.

Spiders wanna force their way into your homes! So watch out, they could be just few inches away from your door, ready to sneak in when its open.

You started smelling smoke and seeing smoke in peoples chimney.

People started buying and bringing firewoods and logs and stack them near the fireplace.

The squirrels are double-time and last minute picking acorns for winter foods.

The leaves in the trees are turning yellows and reds.

People gear up with their leave blowers and rakes and started clearing up the yard full of leaves.

You started using your heater almost everyday and the electricity bill started rising!

You see a lot of flower bulbs for sale in most department stores, supermarkets and home improvement stores.

You need to warm/heat the car before you can drive and leave in the morning.

You see pumkins, lots and lots of pumkins, wherever! Decors, stores, farms, etc.

You started hearing the Christmas songs in the supermarket and seeing christmas decors for sale in the stores.

You will noticed more Christmas holiday movies advertised and being played on TV everyday.

You grab your jacket everytime you go out, even for a few minutes because getting cold out. In other words, it is hard to get out without wearing a jacket anymore.

Have a nice and wonderful Fall/Autumn spirit to all!
