SPF - Seasons change

First let me wish my cousin Amy a happy 40th birthday. I cannot for the life of me figure out how she got to be 40 already. But she is one of the coolest people I know and I hope she has a great day!

Kristine's assignment for this lovely fall day is as follows:

1. Show me your season changing. I know it's finally fall when we light the coal stove. This is some of the coal we will be using shortly. It was actually cold enough last night we could've used the heat, but I already told Hubby not to bother lighting the thing until he gets back from his business trip next Thursday. The stove and I have a rather tempestuous history.

2. Show me the beauty of where you call home.The most beautiful thing about home for me is that I can relax and just be me. Which is not to say I'm not me when I go somewhere else, but just that I can't 100% totally relax anywhere else. For example, white socks with black pants. I didn't even think about that when I got dressed because, hey, I'm at home!

3. Your favorite part of the weather changing.

Watching that red bar drop below 80 (or 24 for my Celsius-minded readers). As long as it's over 80, I can't get comfortable. I get a little thrill of excitement when I look at the forecast for the week and there's nothing over 75, and then it just keeps getting lower. I'm smiling just writing this! And is it any wonder I love the fall? First my birthday, then Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas. What an awesome season!

So, did you play?


  1. I love it when the temps fall, too!!!

    Good SPF. I played, too.

  2. I love the colder weather as well...and we just turned on the heat for the first time last night. When the house got to 62 degrees, we decided it was time. :-)

  3. I have never had a coal stove -- I heat with propane, which makes me a bit nervous, but that's what Steve put in. I don't do well with high temps outside, either. It's great that yours are cooler now! Very nice SPF and pix!

    Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Janna I *heart* your new design! SO CUTE!!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Wow -- we did a lot of feet pics this week!

  5. Hi there! Very creative. Love the coal. I'd never have thought of that! I'm in PA too.

  6. LOL about the white socks and black pants...that's a sign of true relaxation I think...

  7. Excellent pics! I agree with you entirely in regards to the temps! The last couple of days have been below 80 for the first time since before Spring!!!!

    Thanks again for stopping by my are welcome anytime!

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Hey Jana. I love fall, too. {Happy Sigh}... I also really like your new template background.

    Have a nice weekend :)

  9. Hey Jana

    Glad to hear you're a fan of THE OFFICE. I love it when others recount their favourite parts of the show because then I get to enjoy it all over again!

    Like your new template. Was your old one the Pirates one? It was good too but if you're like me, I like to change things up once in a while.


    Hope to catch ya next Friday after the show!!!

  10. Looks like you are kicking back relaxing. It is still hot here.
    Thanks for coming by and commenting. Have a great cool day.

  11. The way it goes for me is fist Christmas, then on the 14th of Jan my birthday!

  12. I can't get excited about anything under 80 degrees ;) but I'm glad you're glad...that stove sounds intimidating...
