Happy Monday...the LIST!

We love Fall because .....

Candles and Pumpkins
Fall foliage and Pumpkin Marmalade
Fall colors and cooler weather
Reds and gold...the colors of Fall
Relief from the heat, nice cool air,
wonderful new foods on the menu, football season
The changing of the seasons
Blogging and celebrating it's arrival
Apples, sweaters, football, leaves, candles, rain - it's all great
My happy fall moments are watching these crazy whimsical
squirrels in the chestnut trees snatch the nuts and hide them.
Hearing the sweet things that my boy says about it
Kids born in the Fall...I like the cool mornings and warm afternoons,
the harvest type suppers, dark evenings with the fireplace.
I love the smell of woodstove smoke as I would walk through our
little town in Connecticut in the early morning.
The beautiful fall color. The taste of REAL fresh apple cider from
Sky Top Orchard in Flat Rock. Butternut squash soup.
Being able to wear sweaters

Isn't our list wonderful...and encouraging?
Thanks to everyone that gave me reasons to love Fall!

I am going to copy these into my journal
and ENJOY the Autumn season!

And to keep us busy...
my friend, Freckled Hen shared some links
for fun Halloween projects!
HERE'S the LINK!
And she even found me a black cat!
I've been looking for one to make!
THANKS!

And go to the Graphics Fairy for
some amazing Halloween clip art!

The weather man is predicting temps in the 40s this week
for our lows so the mountains will be even cooler......so
we should be seeing some glorious Autumn colors soon!

Stormy weather over the mountains this weekend!

Enjoy your Monday...
my favorite day of the week!

What a wonderful Fall list! Thanks so much for posting a link to my blog and for stopping by for a visit! You have a lovely blog here and a gorgeous banner. I love Lavender, we have it planted all over our yard as it's one of the few things that we can grow easily in our red clay soil!

Pumpkin marmalade? Sounds delightful! I'll have to look for it- I'm a huge pumpkin food lover. So excited for fall!

Reading that list made me feel like I was literally taking a walk through Autumn. She opened her doors and let us all walk in. Rain in Bellingham tonight and the leaving are starting to swirl. Time for hot bath and hot orange spice tea. Much love from me to you.
