It's Autumn Time! It's a Autumn Time! The Leaves are Falling Down!


Happy Autumn!

I realize my Autumnal greeting falls a day late, but I was doing homework last night! So, to my dear Aunts, and family, do not worry! If am not posting a blog I am most likely doing my homework. My life is just that awesome.

I am ecstatic for the fall weather that we have been having and will continue to have (hopefully for a little bit longer). It is so refreshing to walk outside and not be hit by a blast of heat from the inferno known as summer time- in- Provo. The leaves turn such beautiful and rich shades of red and yellow. My favorites are the bright golden yellow leaves. Especially, the Aspen leaves. It's delightful to walk through the trees and have the leaves fall all around you. Walking through crunchy leaves is always a must have experience during autumn. But also, I will have a girly moment and declare how much I love fall clothes! I simply adore a good pair of jeans, a light sweater, and boots. I love love love boots. I bought a new pair of short boots that look really cute with jeans...and I plan on buying a green sweater that will make my hair look reddish..and..and... Girly moment over. That was almost too much for me. I will redeem myself by saying that I also love football as well. I won't make it to any of the BYU games because of work, but oh boy, I love to hear about them later! I also have a fond spot in my heart for high school football. And football and falling crunchy leaves just go hand in hand.

Poor Danny is not as excited for fall as I am. Gravity will rear it's ugly head and cause all the beautiful leaves to drop on the stairs leading down to our door and all over the yard. Once he will rake up those leaves, the leaves from the park across the street will blow over to ours thanks to that northern wind. This is what happened last year. I guess this is the price to pay for having such gorgeous and large trees all around us. Trees make his wife incredibly happy though, so I think he can bear them. ;)

A note about homework: I am researched out! It seems like all I have been doing that past few days is researching journal articles on PsychEBSCO. I found 15 good ones for my Literature Review in my Psych. writing class. I am researching studies done about Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy with religious patients. There is controversy whether or not REBT works with people who have religion. The rest of the articles, about 4 of them, are about parental attachment in college students. This is for my Psych Testing class. We are studying the levels of attachment in college freshman.

Oh, and another peice of interesting information. (interesting and horrifying). Christmas is here in retail land! My store set up the first of our christmas shop on Sunday and Monday. I really don't know what else to say about this other than "come on people! It just became autumn!" Oh well. It is a nice display we have. The theme is something like 'all things merry.' So, check it out sometime..maybe after Halloween. There are disney themed decorations and I saw some cute penguin things.

Well, it is getting a bit late. I should be off to get my things ready for school tomorrow.

I love Fall too...but it is usually too short! We went down south today and went 4wheeling in the mountains. BEAUTIFUL leaves! And in sections the aspen leaves were fluttering down on us...very fun.

Your homework/research sounds....well....I won't say it, but I'm glad it's you and not me. ;)

Keep up the good work, and I'll be staying away from the Christmas displays for a bit....it's still a WHOLE LOT TOO EARLY for that!

It is definitely too short! That sounds like so much fun! I love Aspen trees so much! Y'all do the coolest stuff!
hahaha. I wish the research wasn't me but oh well. It is interesting, I just don't like doing it.
It's too early for me too! It hasn't even been my birthday yet, so of course I can not think of something else! ;)
