Fall is here. This year it feels like fall came over night. Last week we had temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s, which is unheard of here. We were setting record high temperatures. I used to always enjoy fall, but living in Ohio has changed that a little bit. I still like fall and the colors around this part of the country are absolutely BREATHTAKING...but I don't feel like I ever really got a summer even with the hotter temperatures. Maybe that's just part of getting older...No more summer breaks, no more days of lounging around or going to the pool daily or fun amusement parks everyday. I guess the main reason I'm not looking forward to fall this year is because I know that cold and sunless skies are ahead and will be here before I know it. I am going to try my best to fully enjoy fall this year. Tonight I got out my Halloween decorations! Decorating will ALWAYS get you in a good mood! Also this year I have decided to make my own pumpkins. I finished my first big one last night and I am absolutely in LOVE with it :) I plan on making my own little pumpkin patch, but they are taking me a lot longer to sew than I thought. For some reason, I couldn't get the pictures in the order that I want and I'm too tired to spend any more time on it, but here's the pictures of what I have so far:
This one will be the biggest pumpkin in the patch:
Here is my big pumpkin with my two little "trial pumpkins"
So, I put my phone on top so you can see just how big this one is. I didn't mean for it to be this big, but I still love how it turned out!
