Fall Fun

I love fall. It doesn’t last long here, but I enjoy it while it’s here. Why do I love fall? Here are a few reasons:100_7379

  1. Pumpkins! What’s not to love about these roundish, orange, vegetables. Carve them with funny faces and roast the seeds. I do draw the line with pumpkin spice everything. I think I came across pumpkin spice Oreos the other day. Really- it’s gone too far.
  2. Cool Breezes and falling leaves. Temperatures are hovering in the mid-80s. Yes, that’s fall. The leaves have turned to a crunchy brown and blow in swirls down the street. The oppressive humidity has lifted and you can feel the earth take a breath. Happy sigh.
  3. Costumes! Does that need explaining?
  4. Festus. Festus the Halloween Rat hibernates most of the year but reemerges every fall to scare my children. He’s doing a terrible job this year. If he’s not careful I will feed him to my cat. If you have any ideas, places to hide Festus, please let me know.
  5. Roasting marshmallows. I love gooey, globs of flaming marshmallows. Just screams fall.
  6. Hot apple cider.
    Yummy. Pair this with a warm muffin and I am one happy chick.
  7. Halloween. This actually mixes several things on my list. Costumes and candy.
  8. Candy. Granted, candy is available year round and I can’t think of any candy in particular that I enjoy in the fall. I just want to eat more of it in the fall. Wait. That may be a bad thing.
  9. Festivals! Fall or October in Alabama, is full of festivals: Free Comic Book Day, Greater Gulf State Fair, Shrimp Festival, BayFest, and on and on. Every time I turn around there is some festival going on. Always something to do.
  10. It means Christmas is just around the corner! Bet you didn’t expect that!

There you have it. The top 10 reasons I love fall.

What do you love about fall?

Festus gets in the way, again.
