Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.

Elizabeth Lawrence


I’ve been grumbling about the end of summer so I thought I’d give you a list of the things I love about Fall.

20 Little Things I Like About Autumn
Flannel sheets at the end of a long day
Candles Flickering
Smelling cinnamon, oranges & cloves
Roasts, Potatoes & Carrots
Reading a good book snuggled in soft blankets
Cozy socks
Pie in the oven
Chili and corn bread
Looking from the inside out at the wind blowing through leaves
Glow of lamps through windows
Laughter filling a room
Cider and popcorn
Caramel apples
The trees changing colors.
The blue of the sky in Autumn, and giant white puffy clouds in it..
The scent of mulled cider.
Pumpkin roll and pumpkin bread.
Colorful mums in the garden.
I do hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday weekend. I’ll be off after work today to my ‘little place in the woods’ until Monday evening. As always you all will be in my thoughts and prayers.

‘On Ya’-ma

Your list is great. The changing leaves is at the top of mine, followed by crispy local apples.

Hi Ma...your list of Fall is great...but I am missing my summer already...noticing lately the days are getting shorter...not my cup of tea so to speak...I do enjoy the fall coloring and leaves changing...but not the cold weather that follows...oh well..the fall does give us "football" which we so enjoy watching LOL...hope camping is all you want it to be for you and the family...hugs from Ora in KY
