Rambling Thoughts on Fall

The tastes...
Candy corn, spiced apple cider,
Pumpkin lattes, caramel apples,

The sounds...
A cat purring in the sunlight that filters through the window blinds,
Goats crunching fallen leaves,

The smells...
Cinnamon and apple candles,

The change in the things we do...
Time to finish the first cup of coffee before the sun comes up,
A long list of winter preparation "to do's,"
Spider web ninja dances,
Putting the mower away for (hopefully) the last time,
Slowing down and edging off the road for combines,

The chill...
Well-worn sweatshirts
Furnace check-ups,

The sights...
Straw bales to stack for winter bedding,
Wagon loads of pumpkins,
Chicken tracks in the mud,
and scarecrows

  1. One of the things I like about Fall is pumpkins ;) :) Pumpkins everywhere and in everything :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
