Who Are We Kidding ?...Fall In South Louisiana

This is not my driveway...our leaves have fallen  due to heat and lack of rain...

Who are we kidding?
Fall is not really in the air here in the South.
I must say that I am so jealous of those that have tweeted and blogged about putting on their sweaters.

Bloggers are having Linky Fall Parties...
If I wait till cooler temps, heck ya'll will be putting up the Christmas trees...

Let me explain Fall in the South.

 Fall here in the South is in our hearts...
 a state of being.
 Yesterday when I got in my car at 3pm it was still 100 degrees.

Fall  in south Louisiana is
Friday night high school football in shorts with mosquito spray.

Blaise receiving his letter mans jacket last year...note they are sweating and have not even opened the jackets.

Fall in the South is  
saying a prayer we will not get
 another Cat. 4 0r 5  hurricane in my lifetime,

 or best yet...
 hoping the neighbors won't laugh as you put out the fall wreath with sweat running between your boobs!

I'm sure Martha never has sweat running down her boobs while hanging a wreath...heck look at that sweater and scarf!

NOTE...this is not my daughter..LOL

My daughter asked Monday if it was
 ok to still wear white...

I told her,  "Of course, Labor Day has
come and gone,
 but Mother Nature does not know that and
it is just too hot to wear all those fall clothes."

Fall in the South is,
 All my northern friends are sippin
 Starbucks Pumpkin Latte...
I'm still sippin my Wedding Cake flavored Sno Balls..

Yesterday we planted our Fall we hope and pray for cooler temps (the 70's would be nice) and just a little rain.

If we wait for cooler temps...
Halloween would be long gone and the calendar will be well on its way to Turkey Day.   
But don't feel sorry for me,
because I have fall in my heart.
 This weekend I will be pulling
out all the fall decore..
Let's just hope I don't have a heat stroke
 in the attic...

I thinkmwe can solve that problem sister. The open road is calling our name. It is pointing north and I think we should listen. Country living Fair maybe??? That's what I;m talking about!

I know how you feel. We're still in the 90's here in Idaho! Come mid-October, we'll have a day where it changes overnight...literally! Enjoy putting up your Fall decor :) I keep it in my heart too!

I lived in Georgia most of my life, now in NC. We are actually getting cooler temps. Tomorrow is suppose to be in the 60's with rain... today is 85

You are so funny, Melissa!! It definitely sounds like it is still summer in your neck of the woods. I's still put up the fall may make you feel cooler!

This post had me laughing out loud at my desk! Love it :) I live in Tampa, and we won't be getting cool temps for quite some time matter, the fall decor is going up this weekend! And I will likely go through two sets of live mums because the heat will surely kill the first bunch before Halloween!

I love your blog as I do your sister's - I live in the Southeastern part of Louisiana also and was wondering what your planted in your garden - fixing to plant my square foot one - also, wanting to extend an invitation to you and your sister to make road trip to Franklinton, LA Washington Parish for the annual Free Fair - held from October 19th thru 22nd - check out their web-site- will give you a little insight about it -

Girl, you are cracking me up! I'm thankful that here in the Memphis area we have cooled a bit, but we're supposed to be back up to the high 80's again next week. Boo! :( I love fall so much...wish the temps would cooperate for the long haul! : )
