Boys of Fall
I have new sassy hair for football season. I have gotten my team colors flip flops out and fluffed them. They are made of 100s of little strips of fabric that dance and wave every time something good happens on the field or when the wind hits them--whichever comes first! I have an outfit already laying out ready to put on Friday. I am considering going to get my toenails painted red and black which are the school colors.
These are the rituals that I have done for decades to welcome one of the best parts of fall. Wow, that makes me sound really old! I have always loved going to football games. Unlike Pantster, I don't have a lot of memories of when I was very young but one of my very first memories is of going to see a high school football game on Friday night with my daddy. We went with his best friend and his daughter who was my age. I got new shoes and a new shirt in the school colors. It was a GREAT time, especially since my mama wasn't there so I got to eat lots of stuff from the concession stand and run wild with other kids that we didn't even know!
Do you have any rituals that you do to bring in the fantastic season of fall?
