Fall is here!

But you'd never know it. Here in NH, the temperature will climb to almost 90 degrees with high humidity. HUH???? It's the end of September and how the heck am I supposed to get into the spirit of all things fall with this heat?
I want to go buy mums and pumpkins in the worst way, but the mood has to be right, and it's so much better on those apple picking and hayriding excursions when there's some leaf-crunching going on under foot.

Fortunately, it's not supposed to last more than a couple days, and by my birthday (on the 29th, people!!! wooo! 29 - AGAIN!) maybe it will feel more like the season it's supposed to be, instead of the season that seems to be dragging on in an endless loop!

I am looking forward to lighting a nice little fire in my newly revamped fireplace . I love that cozy, relaxed feeling of sitting by a warming fire. It defines "home" for me. Not to mention it's a nice way to keep our oil bill on the down low.
For anything you ever wanted to know about alternative home heating, follow this link to read up and compare a ton of options. Even if you're in the middle of a heat wave like me, it's never too early to prepare for colder days ahead.

As you might have noticed, I entered Remodeling My Space's "Remodel, Blog & Win contest. If you like my style, it would be great if you'd take a minute to drop a vote for me. (just click on that button in the upper right hand corner) Make sure you check out my older posts to see what we've done up to this point.
