Something else for a change

A list of things I love about fall (in no particular order).

Wearing a big cozy hoodie on cool nights

Apple picking in Vermont

Endless amounts of fall foliage and colors

County fairs for the fried dough and farm animals, but not so much the carnies

The smell of leaves

and gourds and squash

Comfort foods like mashed potatoes, slow cooked stews, and zucchini bread

Cicadas and crickets

Cooler nights mean more snuggling necessary (man and beast)

Tomatoes and carrots and zucchini

Fewer summer tourists in town

Football Sundays (the perfect excuse for long afternoon naps)

Halloween is coming!

What'd I miss?

aaaah, extensive list, can't think of anything i'd like to add. i love the change of habits that comes with the change in seasons.

Very cool. I miss fall. I miss just about all those things you've named. Where I live now it's pretty much hot and humid 365 days a year. If I was to wear a "big cozy hoodie," I'd pass out! AD

I'm in Michigan, and fall has arrived also. Doesn't the change of seasons lift your spirits! I pity people who cannot jump into a big pile of wet leaves...

Oh yes, jumping in leaves! How did I miss that one?
