Today is the first actual fall-feeling day we've had and it's only the first week of September! I realize that this bliss will more than likely not last and that we will plunge back into scorching temperatures again once the real fall weather is supposed to arrive, but I'm enjoying it while I can. I have a long mental list that I wanted to make note of. Autumn festivities that I want to accomplish this season: Plant mums in the window boxes. Make a wreath for our front door. Carve pumpkins. Make cider. Cook with lots and lots of pumpkin, squashes, and spices. Go to an apple orchard and use those apples to make homemade applesauce. Wear lots of scarves. Bike bike bike! Go on a short backpacking trip. Stay warm by the what? WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE! Bonfires at the parent's house. ....and many other things that I can't think of now, but will hopefully remember before it's winter and it's too cold to do anything but curl up on the couch.
