It is comforting to many when fall season arrives with the cooler weather, tree leaves turning color, and children going back to school. This season often brings fond memories of years past, of raising our children, warm home cooked meals and perhaps of close relatives’ home visits. Kids will often bring home school projects, pumpkin drawings, and Halloween costume ideas and in general be very excited about the fall season. It is great to see so many parents participating with helping out their children while having some fun of their own. Many remember how great it was for them during this fun time of the year.
Now that the kids are in school many parents could take some time out for themselves. When taking care of ourselves then we are then better able to care for our families. It would be great to at least spend an hour a day to exercise, plan activities for the family or even organize the home. When children arrive home later on in the day, we may feel more refreshed and better able to focus on them. Even if a person works; a day out in the week could be taken out for self-renewal and fun activity planning.
During the fall season the family gets into their routine schedule and time management is very helpful. Today, many women take time out to read their favorite magazines, cook books, visit the gym and organize or decorate the home. There are many activities that not only make the home look great but also bring great joy. Today, even many men that are caring for their kids often take time to care for themselves while also planning fun activities for their children. There are many inexpensive ways to decorate for the fall season and many simple recipes for preparing great home cooked meals. We may often be surprised as to how easy it could with the use of slow cookers and healthy easy to prepare recipes.
One easy decoration that many enjoy is the decorative small garden bench. These could be found easier during spring and summer and then decorated for yearly activities. For example in the spring the bench could be placed on a porch for decoration with a container that has blooming colorful flowers. Then in the fall as this picture here shows the same bench could be decorated for fall with artificial fall leaves or other fall season decorative art such as those for a fall harvest or Halloween for the kids’ enjoyment.
The fall is one of favorite seasons that help bring so many great memories. My children are now grown however I still take the time for fun activities and cherish watching so many enjoy the season. Here is a picture of my grandmother who would often receive us at her home on week-ends and close to the holidays. She lived to be 100 and I truly miss her cooking and comforting words of wisdom. This was in the Caribbean however regardless of geographic locations fall is always about sharing time with family and celebrating the coming harvest in the year. Here are some pictures depicting the joyful colors of Fall.
Colors of fun in the fall season.
