Grandparent's Say It Saturday



Fall has arrived! Though you might not know it from our temps here today! I heard it will be around 106 today!  Around here we start to get a little giddy at the thought of cooler temperatures and look forward to getting outside more, and perhaps with a little fall gardening; or hiking in one of the local mountain preserves here. I look forward to it all, but now is the time that I start putting into action my Family Harvest Day plans.

I must confess I have been slow this year about getting the ball rolling, but I have given it a little push and things are moving along. We usually make Scarecrows at our Harvest Day as a group project. You will find my tutorial how to make a Scarecrow from last year here at this link.

Do you have fall plans? Is there a special way you celebrated the changing seasons with activities, home décor, or outings? How about visits to the pumpkin patch or farmers markets? Do you do something special for Halloween?

Thanks for coming by today! I hope you enjoy linking up and/or reading all my linkers today! Stop back in a day or so to check out new linkers ok? And don’t forget to leave them some comment love so they know you were there.

  2. In Michigan today it's 60 and raining. Time to wish we had back the 104 from last July!
    We do family fall events, but they are centered around Halloween. Pumpkin carving and a party for my adult kids is the usual, but this year I am adding a spin on your Harvest Day idea with one of my own...dinner and a craft with everybody!

  4. Oh, the triple digits you Arizonians suffer. Blech! Will be in the upper 70s here today and I'm loving it. Off to buy some craft supplies for the Halloween craft Bubby requested we do when I visit in two weeks. That's TWO WEEKS! Hooray!

    Have a great day!

  5. Connie, In response to your question about the glasses.
    Yes, we always take as many glasses as we can when we go to do a medical mission, sometimes we send a sea container ahead of time. We have a native optometrist who can fit used glasses for the people. Also, just plain reading glasses are very useful because many of the people just can't see up close. Any one wishing to donate used glasses can send them to me and they will be put to good use. E-mail me for my address. Blessings to you.
