Things I love about fall....

  • Leaves running across the road like cats.
  • The sawdust smell of a fallen branch (in anyone's yard but mine!).
  • Spongy grass.
  • Netflix Sunday afternoons with hot chocolate and blankets.
  • Hats.
  • Cloud animals. 
  • Pajama pants. Finally.
  • Costumes and candy. (Lots and lots of candy.... costume optional.)
  • Long, hot baths with a book. 
  • Walking the dog in the wind.
  • Cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Aspen leaves applauding the breeze.
  • Closed-toed shoes. And new socks.
  • Oak ball wars.
  • Crunchy footsteps.
  • Enormous, lopsided pumpkins on my tiny, lopsided porch.
  • Baking cookies. And bread.
  • Rain.

What's your favorite thing about fall?

  1. Sweaters coming out of the cupboard, crockpot chicken stew and dumplings, and frost at the corners of the windows.

    Good list!
