Thursday Thirteen Numero Dos

Thirteen Things about why I love Fall

1. The patchwork of colors that the leaves will become - red, gold, orange, purple, yellow.
2. Hockey - Big Red Wings fan, as well as a huge fan of my son who will be a second year Mite this season.
3. College Football - Go Blue! (U of M, of course)
4. Crisp days with brilliant blue skies.
5. Going to the cider mill for cider and donuts.
6. The feeling of anticipation as a new school year starts.
7. Watching all the birds stop at our house for a snack from the Hawthorne and crabapple trees before they head south.
8. Saying hello to the fall flowers.
9. Our town's Fall Festival, which provides a weekend of enjoyment for all.
10. Going pumpkin hunting with my boys for their jack o'laterns.
11. Cooking stew, soup and chili again.
12. Quiet mornings and afternoons with both children in school.
13. Writing outside.

I admit what I like about Fall is decorating for Halloween. :)

Kris Yankee said...

I'm slowing getting more Halloween decorations. But that is one of my favorite holidays!

Babe King said...

Oh how lovely! We're just heading into spring so we're all daffodils and apple buds. :-)

Jennifer McK said...

I LOVE the Fall. I could totally relate to the scene in "You've got Mail" and the bouquet of new pencils.

Debbie Mumford said...

Mmmmm ... love apple cider!!

Ava Rose Johnson said...

I love the colors too. So gorgeous and warm.

Paige Tyler said...

Sandra Ferguson said...

I love pumpkin hunting.

Oh, and then there's Halloween. Mine are too old for costumes anymore, but I love the fun of the night and seeing the little ones out in all their finery.

Amelia June said...

Sounds lovely, but living in the desert means I don't get much of a fall ;)

Enjoy those leaves changing for me!

Elle Fredrix said...

Yes! Fall has always been my fave season. And it's such a relief after a stinking hot summer!

YACWW Moderators said...

FALL! I still want summer. Where did it go? Although, I do love the colors too :)

This week I am thanking my fellow TTer's by having you to pick my book trailer. Just my way of thanking you for being so supportive of me.

OMG, I LIVE for fall! Can't wait, can't wait!

Heather said... cider, the crunch of leaves underfoot and the annual cemetery tour -- all reasons why I love fall!

Jenna Leigh said...

I cook chili all the time because that's one of my fave dishes. But one thing I like about Fall is that we'll get some temperatures in the double digits. Hopefully anyway. Love the 13!
