The end of summer blahs

I think I've got the "end of summer blahs." Yes, I just totally made that up. Okay, wait, I just googled it; I guess I didn't.

Yeah, I don't feel like doing anything... productive. So, this will be a somewhat frivolous post.

It's getting closer to autumn, so I have been working on autumn-y type stuff. When the fall comes I actually drive into town and wander around on the sidewalks and take pictures of people's trees. I've been processing / editing some of the photos I've taken over the years to put on my "sarahknight" etsy shop. These are some of my favorites (so far)...

Anyway, since autumn is coming, other than photographing leaves and watching flocks of birds fly south, there is something I am looking forward to: the fall television season.

Yes, I like watching television. And, no, I'm not ashamed to admit that. I am also certainly not one of those people who would ever consider trying to hide my television in an armouir. In fact, I would like to buy a bigger television...

Anyway I am looking forward to some good old fashioned leisure time with:
House (Fox)
Supernatural (CW)
Dexter (Showtime)
Californication (Showtime)
Bones (Fox)
Fringe (Fox)
Castle (ABC)
Criminal Minds (CBS)
Community (NBC)

In the mean time, this summer I have enjoyed:
Leverage (TNT) — Eliot is dreamy!
Memphis Beat (TNT)
The Closer (TNT)
The Gates (ABC)
Scoundrels (ABC)
And the one and only season of "Happy Town" (ABC)

I'm kind of bummed that the "Memphis Beat" season ends next week — I was really enjoying that show. Hopefully it comes back for a second season...

So, what are your favorite tv shows?

Hi Sarah, that's the reason we usually take a short vacation in August - it gives us a boost. Try it. Love your tree shots!

Oh yes ~ fall is near ~ you can smell it in the air!

My favourite shows that I am looking forward to returning for the new season are:
Modern Family
The Tudors
The Dragon's Den
New Series I will try out:

I'm looking forward to it ~ no shame involved being excited about your favorite TV programs returning! :)

I love autumn! As much as I love swimming and this summer we got to take fridays off, but I love weather in the fall!!! I can't wait for the cool weather and pretty leaves and Halloween!!

I'm looking forward to the fall also and I too enjoy some great TV shows like The Closer, Leverage, and Castle. I've been watching Rizzoli and Isles, Covert Affairs, and White Collar. I pre-record them and skip over the commercials. I can understand why people get a large TV. Entertainment at home has great flexibility--food break, pottie break, telephone break.

I've got the "I'm so sick of summer blahs!". We've been having a heatwave of 100+ temps, and our whole summer is 95 or above. Looking forward to cooler temps! I watch too much tv, too, though less now that my favorite summer show has ended (So You Think You Can Dance).

Lovely tree photos! I must say I am looking forward to cooler temperatures, colorful leaves and migrating birds. It has been an especially hot summer here in the midwest so I'm ready for autumn.

Happy fall tv viewing!

Fall is the best time of the year to take photographs in my opinion! Loved your shots of the trees!
I am getting excited for "The Good Wife" to be back on t.v.
