Sunday Salon / Sunday Post – I HATE FALL Y’ALL – Weekly Rewind – Mail Call


The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
You can also link up weekly on Readerbuzz.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by
Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.



I do hate Fall, mainly because I loooovvvvee Summer, but it is weeks like these that bring my hatred home. Temps start to drop, sunshine is spotty, and rain seems to last for days. I did see a little sun this week and it was warm for a couple of hours but Friday when Daughter #1 arrived to kidnap me for a haircut it was raining and with each minute that passed, the colder it got. She had more than a haircut so we were at the salon a couple of hours and by the time we left, I was wishing I had brought my winter coat. We did look fine when we left though. 


Then on Saturday, Daughter #2 and I headed to the last football games of the season and we layered up our clothing because baby it was cold outside and the wind was blowing. 

Yes, that is me. I was bundled up like that for Kaden’s game and then moved into the shelter (where this picture was taken) to watch Remington’s last two games. I couldn’t feel my feet for awhile I was so darn cold. 

Kaden’s team did great again and won 36 – 0 to remain undefeated for the season. Remi’s team also did fantastic and the kids picked up some skills to build on for next year. They all had so much energy and didn’t seem to be bothered by the cold at all.  The boys did come home with us, so their mom could sleep after working the overnight shift. I am still thawing out as I type this. 

Mr. Dollycas took this picture.

Last Sunday before all the blustery weather hit. Natalie was with us and we went to a pancake breakfast put on by the fire station in our home town where my father was chief until he passed away in 1988. We were joined by Daughter #1 and Remi. We have not attended the breakfast in many years. It was heartwarming to see a dedication to my dad as soon as we walked in the door and viewed the history in pictures in the meeting room with the grandchildren. We also ran into some wonderful people we don’t see much anymore since we moved out of town. It was good to catch up even for a few minutes. I also received a Mary Baker hug and those are priceless.

  1. I had to turn the heat on this morning, so I guess fall is officially here! You look so cold at the game! I’m glad I don’t have anyone to watch play yet! It’s so nice that the fire station has a dedication to your dad. Pancakes sound good to me now! I am reading And Then There Were None right now. I’m going to participate in NaNoWriMo this year, so I am doing some “research” by reading the queen of mystery’s books. I want to write a Victorian mystery. I just do it for fun and my books never make sense! Have a great week and happy reading!

  2. I’m just the opposite….I like summer, but I adore fall. I love to get all bundled up and be out in the world. It’s so hot during summer that I feel like I need to stay inside more.

    The cookbook looks fun. I hope you will tell us about it soon.

    Have a great week!

  3. What part of the country do you live in? It’s still summery here in eastern North Carolina. Highs today in the low 80’s. I’d looove some cooler weather!

  4. The football game photo made me laugh out loud… I remember those days all too well!! We have just moved to Florida and I am thrilled not to have to deal with cold, snowy winter anymore. Stay warm!!
