Welcoming Fall

Yesterday was the perfect weather for the first day of Fall in our hood. Overcast, cool and some quiet time inside watching football. Yep, perfect.

Ohhh how I love this season!
I love...
How the days are slowing getting shorter. A rest for nature but also for us.
Cool nights and warm days.
Planting seeds for a winter harvest.
Soups, Chowder and Chili.
Football, of course!
The feel of my knitting needles back in my hands and the clacking sounds they make.
Falling leaves and their rainbow of colors.
Warmth from a fireplace.
Pumpkin Pie
Apple harvest
Scarfs and Sweaters, yay!

How about you guys, what do you love about Fall and what's your favorite season?


  1. we got rain the other day and cooler temps - and for that i like autumn. :)

  2. Pumpkin everything :) Autumn is my fave, but Spring a close second. Love the pic and your "faves" too! One perk where you live: planting seeds for winter harvest :) a bit jealous on that one.. lol! -Tammy

  3. I love it all! Fall is my favorite time of year. :)

  4. Love all of the above...and candles and time for books...But my favorite season is spring!

  5. Amen, sister! I love going to bed at 8 pm and not feeling guilty! I love making crocheted rag rugs, the warmth of the goat when I milk her, kale, collards, Swiss chard, and hot apple cider, hot herbal tea with local honey and oh, how I love the change of the seasons. But, talk to me in February, I'll be ready for July.....

  6. walks after work in the dark
    lights on in folks homes so I can take a peek inside to see their coziness
    dutch ovens slow baking for hours
    vintage room lights casting soft glow
    hand knit throws to cover up while movie watching
    mugs....filled with warm surprises
    the slow resting pace for the soul

  7. I ADORE autumn!
    It is the bestest and most coziest season:)
