Fall is in the Air

The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Who would think that sitting at a computer all day moderating a chat would be so exhausting? I was fried by the time 9:00 came last night! And I get to do it all over again today, lol. It was fun. It was crazy. It was busy. What a blast!

DH and DD are planning on boating today. Not much more boating weather happening up here -- it's cooling down dramatically, like someone flipped the "fall" button. Nights are down in the 40s, days will have highs in the 70s. Yesterday, I wore a sweater all day (of course, we had all our windows open and it was only 62 degrees outside, lol, but we do like our fresh air). This morning when I went outside to put the bird feeders up, I didn't get attacked by bugs ... are the mosquitoes gone? That would be a plus for certain.

In any case, my plans for today are chat moderation and website maintaining - I need to build all our pages for next week in between chatting and giving away our three eReaders (that part will be really cool).

Are you up to anything interesting?

=========================




You Are Mocha Iced Coffee



You are bold and confident. You enjoy taking risks, especially when the rewards are great.

For you, there's nothing better than the taste of sweet success. You crave power.



You have a dominant personality, and most people are drawn to your strengths.

You are very creative and inventive. You follow your passions, and they rarely lead you astray.



About 50/50 ... though I do like a good mocha latte.

Not much going on over here.

I tried to go into the chat and couldn't find where to go. I'll try again today.

We'd been gone most of yesterday so I missed the chat. Sorry!
I read the part about the weather where you are and told Chris I wish it were like that here. I truly adore Fall.
I was a Vanilla Iced Coffee: You are subtle and modest. You tend to hang back in a crowd and watch what's going on.
You actually have a lot to offer, but you make sure not to boast about it.
You are sweet, loyal, and accepting. You are a true friend to everyone in your life.
You bring out the best in people. You are secure enough to let others shine.

I hope that's true! *G*

I hope you have a great time on your chat today!

It's pleasantly quiet here. And cooler today, too. 77 right now.

I went to the chat - really lots of activity there. I can believe you are tired after a 2 days of busy chatting.

Visited my guest blog post. Went to church and took a nap. Either have a cold or allergies. Nothing exciting.

It's chilly here, too. I hope the chat went well. :)

Wow temps def have dropped there. It is a bit cooler here too 72 at night and 92-95 during the day lol, I guess fall hasn't made it down here yet, but it is less than 100 and the humidity is less too.

Just ran a bunch of errands, did laundry (laundromat sigh), cleaned apt, groomed both dogs, all kinds of fun stuff lol.
