The First Day Of Fall Arrives

Dear Diary:

The first day of fall starts today at 9:54pm.  Summer sure has left us in my part of the world, and its departure was fast.  This morning it was 0C when I got up.  A little too crisp for my taste.

But in my second world I can always find a place with plenty of sunshine.  I found one with the sun and a lot of fall foliage to enjoy.

The Countryside proved to be an ideal spot.  I found a field where the grasses have turned with fall.  As I walked through it, several deer were eating them up.  I loved the birch trees since those trees are what I have in my area.  Nice touch.

Enjoy the wonderful colours of fall.

Good Night for now.

Why Does It Always Rain On The Weekends?

Dear Diary:

We've had great weather this past summer - hot days, cooler nigts and very little rain.  But it seems whenever I want to go to some interesting place, it begins to drizzle.  I wanted to visit Strawberry Island.  I heard it was a picturesque place showing a bit of fall colours.  So off I went last Saturday expecting the best but ran into the worst.  RAIN!

I was lucky to have my umbrella with me.

Strawberry Island is worth a visit but watch for personal homes.  There are signs posted signifying if a house is privately owned.

Good Night for now.

Did You Make Your Bed This Morning?

Dear Diary:

Yes, it's National Make Your Bed Day.  I'm sure most of us - ahem - do make our beds each morning but some statistics say that the majority of people do not make their bed every day.  This morning I was prompted to make my bed in both worlds.

It has been said that by making the bed after you get up, it gets you into an organizational mood so the rest of your day falls into place.  I don't really know about that but making the bed does make me feel I've accomplished something even before I get to work.

If you make your bed each day, you run a better chance of having a good nights sleep.  A smooth bed helps cut down the tossing and turning when the covers just don't seem to be coming the right way. 

Check this website for the top 6 reasons for making your bed.   

Good Night for now.  (and don't forget to make your bed!!)

Labour Day! Does It Mean Summer Is Over?

Dear Dairy:

People say that.  "Labour Day signals the end of summer."  Hmmm.  The way the temperature has been going in my part of the world, that phrase could be right.  There has definitely been a cooling off period.  However, I am hopeful that we will get a few more days of warm weather coming up.

In my second world, I'm guaranteed of good weather - most of the time.  So I called on Chloe to come with me while I toured a lovely area this Labour Day.  She's game for anything so we flew out to Whimberly, a gorgeous sim that shows fall at its best.

Later in the day, we flew out and had a great time exploring the various aspects of the sim.  A worthwhile trip for sure.  There was so much to see - paths to follow; residential establishments to peak into; and sitting areas to relax in.

As for me, back from vacation means laundry and clean-up.  A true "labour day" as far as I'm concerned.

Good Night for now.
