Dare #48

Happy, happy Monday! It's amazing how much better my spirit is after a weekend of relaxation and recuperating! Literally, I feel like I did nothing, and as unproductive that is, I'm kind of thankful this morning. Not to mention I feel SOOO much better, no more stupid cold!

Here is your dare this week:
Dare #48:

Being that the official beginning of fall is this week, tell me;
1. What is your favorite thing about fall?
2. What is your least favorite thing about fall?

Friday night was quiet. Have you ever heard of Well it's a place where you pay a certain amount every month for DVD rentals. Well we had three new movie's on hand that we wanted to watch. Friday seemed like the perfect time.

When I was a kid EVERY Friday was "Movie Night in Beechgrove" at my house. We would have spaghetti for supper and then go to Quyon with Dad to pick out a movie and a treat (chips usually). Then we (brother and I) would all snuggle into the basement and watch a movie. It was a great tradition with my parents. I would look forward to it every week! So, last Friday, Ryan and I had our own "Movie Night in Beechgrove".

Saturday was a day of doing nothing. A couple loads of laundry but that is it! I actually was wide awake in bed at 7:00 AM but there was no way I was moving so I picked up a book and read until 9:30...peaceful! I worked that night but the night went by fast.

I woke up late on Sunday morning and had some breakfast. Ryan got home from work early and was spending the afternoon golfing with my dad, brother and Pat (friend and co-worker). So, I found a REALLY girly movie to watch while he was away. Well not only did I watch one SUPER chick flick but two. First was Letter's to Juliet which turned out to be a really cute movie! It felt you with a sigh of happiness at the end of it.

Next, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was on next. Again, another movie perfect for a boyfriend-less Sunday afternoon!! I ate leftovers for supper so I didn't even have to cook. Like I had said; quiet, relaxing and lazy weekend....perfect!!

How was your weekend?



  1. I was outside most of the weekend...I decorated the front of my house for fall - then yesterday I cleaned up the yard - cut the grass and pulled some weeds that we had killed! Accomplished a lot and it felt good.
    It was beautiful out, I actually thought yesterday when I was in my tank top that it would be very wierd if I had gotten sunburnt on Sept 19th when I didn't even get a touch of red all summer but I don't think I got sun burnt but I defintely felt like i could have!

    What I like about Fall - well I like the colors of the leaves and will accept it a lot more now that I don't have a bizillion to clean up this year...woo hoo!
    What I don't like about Fall - well the colder temps and well its hunting season, which means for 2 weeks I have to drive into the city alone (because hubby is off) and I fear every morning that it's going to snow or be icy...LOL

    Have a great week!

  2. I love the fall colors! I HATE the cold weather. Cold weather is hard on my "old" body! My knees can be freezing cold in 110F degree weather! and me wearing jeans. You can feel how cold they are through my jeans. So imagine what cold weather does to them! They ache!

  3. I love the fall! It is my favorite time of the year!

  4. Hi Lindsay! I love your blog! Even though I live all the way in Arizona, the things you write about sometimes feel familiar to me because of my family that lives in that area! I think to myself, "Hey, I've been there before!" LOL!

    Fall is my favorite time of the year! I love to decorate in earthy colors, burn fall smelling candles, go woodcutting, and bake things with pumpkin or apples in them.

    What I don't like about fall is that first hard frost that makes everything in the yard die. It looks so ugly, and I know that it will be 7 or 8 months before things start to green up again. :(
