I already decorated the outside of my house last weekend in order to get the stuff by the first, since that is today--a Friday, and I work all weekdays. It's still very hot unfall-like weather in my part of California. But it was like this just a year ago and both times I had to endure hot weather to get my decorations up by the first.
Will be posting and reading what other participating blogs have come up with. It's gonna be fun!
