ten things i love about fall
posted by soe 1:33 am

With snow predicted in the mid-Atlantic region tomorrow evening and with dark and somewhat dreary weather punctuating the unexpected extra time on my hands (Honestly, it’s so November. I’ve just gotten spoiled living in the south, where cold and dank weather doesn’t generally arrive until December or sometimes even January.), I’m having a harder time than usual remembering how much I love fall. I thought it was time to recap ten of the things I love about it to help get me back in the mood (since there’s still another five weeks left of it…):

  1. The foliage.
  2. Cider doughnuts.
  3. Halloween and Thanksgiving.
  4. Coffeeneuring.
  5. Wearing handknits.
  6. Apples and quince and squash.
  7. Comfortable weather (as compared to winter or summer) for long, leisurely walks or bike rides.
  8. New tv shows. (We’re enjoying several including God Friended Me, the Magnum P.I. reboot, A Million Little Things, Happy Together, and Single Parents, which is nice because nearly everything we watched last year got canceled or bumped to a spring start.)
  9. Digging up the potatoes in my garden. (Because it’s like a treasure hunt.)
  10. Hot drinks. (And the fact that everyone stops thinking I’m weird for drinking six cups of tea a day. They still think I’m weird for plenty of other reasons.)

How about you? What do you love about autumn?
