Fall is in the Air

Now that school has started I think I am finally starting to get back into some kind of  a routine around here. We were so busy in the summer with camping, company and traveling that lots of things, including my diet (healthy, not weight loss) and exercise plan, went out the window.  Remember how I was so proud of myself for beginning to jog?  Well… that slowly came to a stop when the humid weather hit. Don’t get me wrong, I love the heat but I do not enjoy jogging in it. 

As for trying to eat healthy that is almost next to impossible to do when camping and really why would you want too?  Part of camping is making spider dogs and roasting marshmallows for smores. And the best part about camping is frying up bacon and eggs for breakfast in the morning. Some things you just don’t want to mess with you know?

I’m pretty sure last weekend was our last camping adventure of the season, (sob, sob).  We actually spent it with a couple of our amazing friends in their camper which was a nice change. It’s getting to that point now where it’s almost a wee bit too chilly for camping. In the mornings as your climbing out of the cold camper into the colder great outdoors (shivering) you’re asking yourself, what is it I enjoy about camping again?(wink)
Although summer is winding down there is still something that excites me about the fall.  Maybe the thought of getting a new pair of boots? (Joke, well kind of...) Seriously though, I do enjoy seeing the colors of the leaves as they change and I do look forward to pumpkin flavored everything and I love the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival.  I look forward to our family’s annual trip to the apple orchard to pick fresh apples and take photos. We are also traveling to Cape Breton to visit family in the fall as well. So although it is sad to see the summer season change there is still lots to look forward to in the fall.   
What does fall have in store for you?


  1. I need routine too, in a couple of weeks I get my life back from work and would like to get back into running!

    What are spider dogs?

    1. Hi Corinne, spider dogs are when you slice the ends of hot dog so when you roast them over the fire the "legs" curl up to look like a spider. They are lots of fun and taste really good. My kids love them. Thanks for your comment!
