Friday Favourites – Fall Things

It’s been a crummy summer, but somehow I’m still looking forward to the fall. I love this stunning season almost as much as I love the spring, and even though I loathe the long, frigid months that follow, I still enjoy the lead up, the anticipation of fall. 

Here are some of my favourite fall things:

Hibernating begins. And I’m not talking about the bears. I’m eagerly awaiting things to slow down, to catch up on some sleep, to rest for a while.

TV! Boardwalk Empire, The Walking Dead, Parenthood, and Survivor! 

Long, lazy nights.

The gorgeous fall colours – I could drive around and stare for days.

Turkey and everything Thanksgiving. Particularly pumpkin pie.

The smell of cool, crisp days.

Diminished concern over donning a bathing suit.

Knitting, which is something my fingers itch to do as soon as the nights turn cool.

Stews, soups and roasts.

Cuddling up under cozy blankets.

No pressure to be out ‘enjoying the weather’ so I can curl up and write – or read – without guilt.

Curling up in front of the fireplace.

 What are your favourite fall things?

  1. I totally agree with the staying inside without guilt! That’s one of the things that’s been hard about not working…I could be outside all day, every day but sometimes I just want to sit on my couch and read and not worry about heat and sun exposure! Lovely list!
