20 Little Things to Love about Fall

Although the calendar still has a few weeks until fall, the beginning of September marks the start of fall for me. Here are 20 little fall pleasures that I enjoy:

1. a changing focus - from outdoors to indoors
2. apples - apple crisp, applesauce, baked apples, apple pie
3. candles - flickering on the breakfast table, or in the evening
4. birthday season for our family - 3 in Sept, 1 in Oct, 2 in Nov
5. the second weekend in October - Thanksgiving for Canadians
6. building fires in the fireplace

7. listening to the rain fall during the night
8. roasted vegetables
9. snuggling under a warm duvet
10. scuffling my feet through crisp leaves
11. dahlias
12. stitching or knitting in the evening
13. fat pumpkins
14. family dinners around the dining room table
15. wearing socks
16. homemade soup
17. sweaters
18. changing colours in the garden
19. sewing
20. blue, blue skies and crisp air

  1. I have to agree with all the wonderful things on your list for the enjoyment of Fall.
    The only thing that worries me (being a fellow Canadian) that Winter is not far behind it!

  3. I agree, I agree, I agree! Fall is my most favourite time of year... except that it is hurricane season... which floods basements...which ruins new floors...

    Thanks for the comment on my blog!

  4. I think I could say amen to everything on your list!

    Fall is my most favourite time of year. There's something of darkening evenings that makes one want to draw nearer the fire..... it's a cozy feeling.
