Twenty Little Treasures

Remember the post where I kicked and screamed to hold onto summer? Well, I won’t be forced, but I can be wooed. Autumn is whispering my name softly in the light smoke of the first fire. He is calling me out to the forest with the swish of falling yellow leaves. He is tempting me with crisp red apples and caramel. I am warming up to him.

Melissa at The Inspired Room encouraged me to blog about my favorite autumn treasures:

  • Tattered red leaves in a bowl on my dining room table.
  • Fleece snugglies from the attic.
  • Family walks after dinner under beautiful sunsets.
  • Freshly-picked Apples for candying and bobbing.
  • Kids’ superhero costumes and flying through the house.
  • Bonfires with neighbors.
  • Thousands of migrating birds (“pepper”) against the mid-afternoon clouds.
  • Dry corn fields to trample. 
  • Old plaid shirts and hay for stuffing scarecrows.
  • Lighting the first fire of the year.
  • Monday Night Football with kids.
  • Sunday Newspaper (on the floor in front of the fire, during the football game).
  • Hubby’s lined flannel shirts–on me.
  • Acorn tops for filling glass jars.
  • My dad’s chili and cornbread and banana pudding.
  • New shoes to snuggle my toes.
  • Backyard Cowboy Camp Outs with freeze dance to Roy Rogers’ music.
  • School buses burping up squealing children.
  • Fall festival dancing and pumpkin picking.
  • Thanksgiving recipe cards smudged with pumpkin pies of the past.
