It is 8 am and the temperature is 50 degrees.  The trees are already dropping their leaves.  The ground is covered with them. The tomato plants are dropping their tomatoes even before they have a chance to ripen. The trees and plants seem to know that it is almost time for their season to end.

The flower beds are now blooming in brilliant shades of yellows and golds.  The farm stands have an abundance of pumpkins and mums. These are all signs that Fall is almost here.

I hate packing away my summer clothes and bringing out the cords and long sleeves.  I don’t want to let go of my sandals and will hang in there till the last minute.

The sensible thing to do is to start bringing out the Fall and Winter clothes now.  Don’t wait till the last minute to check for missing buttons, broken zippers, and pants that need to be taken in or let out.   Are you wearing a lower heeled shoe?  Anything need to be shortened?
