While I’m actually a Spring time lover, the Fall makes me think of lots of fun times. It also makes me think of my brother who loved this time of year more than anything. His perfect day was rising at 5 am, putting on a pair of Carharts, (sometimes rousting boys out of bed to hunt), riding in the woods, and, of course, sipping on a little bourbon. Life was good. So as the leaves begin to fall I think of all of wonderful things that this time of year brings.
In my own home, Fall gets the vote for favorite season from my boys and The Husband. I think they see it as cooler weather, football, Friday night lights and more football. What more could they want?
You know how I love a list so here are some of my likes, dislikes and others shared by some of you:
Outdoor and Indoor fires
Time change so there’s light in the morning – a particular favorite of mine!
Starbucks Pumpkin Latte
Planning Thanksgiving Meals
Chilis and Soups
Jeans and Boots
Cool Outdoor Workouts
Smell of Burning Leaves
Short, Dark Days
Cold Outdoor Workouts
Busyness of the Holidays
It looks as if THE GOOD outweighs THE BAD. Maybe that is true with any new Season as maybe it’s just that we all get ready for a change. I love that each new phase of the year will bring on new attitudes, habits, eats and activities. They also bring on new sets of memories, whether good or bittersweet.
What about you? What’s your favorite Season? Why? What more needs added to the list?
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
