Fall is in the air….sort of!

Hiddy Hi all y’all in the Lawn Chair Nation!

Just turned my calendar and it says it’s fall. I guess because it’s October and the official sanctioned date for the commemoration was September the 22nd. Here in East Texas, we still have summer and danged if the rain hasn’t stopped! We had pretty good rain all summer but right after Harvey, it stopped. Strange, but that’s just weather in Texas.

Fall marks a change of seasons whether the temperature is cooperating or not. Here in the Deep South, we can enjoy being outside well into November and I’ve seen some of the prettiest weather you can imagine at Thanksgiving! Everybody around here and most other places I’m sure is busy with school football. We’ve been to Denton to see the grandson do some quarterbacking and thankfully we could sit in the shade! Poor kids were soaked from the heat and all that running around. Oh well, it’ll be winter soon enough.

So, what to do with your Lawn Chairs? Since the evenings are getting cooler, and for us that means the low 80’s, I suggest getting together with friends and family in the backyard, take a deep breath and enjoy the time you have before all the Holiday festivities kick in. Maybe you’re like us, with all our kids scattered about, we do a fair bit of traveling so our sitting around opportunities diminish and then we have other civic obligations that begin this time of year. Why is it, the older you get, the busier you get? How does that work?

Taking time for one’s self is an important health consideration. Therefore, spending a little time relaxing in a nice Metal Lawn Chair in the comfort of one’s own surroundings is actually part of a heathy life style. Sort of like, eating skinless chicken breast! I like mine barbequed of course. The simple act of taking time out from a hectic life gives the body an opportunity to regain its strength. And if that happens to include a frosty adult beverage, then so much the better!

I hope all y’all have a very pleasant fall season and please try to relax in your Lawn Chairs as often as you can. It’ll make you a better person and improve your well being. Just keep with it and you’ll soon see what I’m talking about!

Talk to y’all later!
