MAIN Home Life Fall Fun Guide
a Touch of Autumn
the excitement from an author whose
favorite time of year is when the weather turns frosty
- along with
more cool resources to fun Autumn activities just up ahead...
calendar pages drop so quickly and Summer is over - the fun, get-togethers,
vacations, outings, family, etc. Absolutely not - the most colorful,
exhilarating and exciting season is about ready to arrive.
Fall - Harvest Time - whatever name you attach to this time of
year - it is a tribute to the world around you as the holiday
season is fast approaching and great times are just ahead.
Fall gets the "baking" instinct in you up and about
- whether you do the baking or a quick trip to a neighborhood
bakery. Warm, fresh and succulent apple offerings - apple pies, doughnuts
with cinnamon and sugar, and caramel iced sticky buns to name
Trips to apple and pumpkin picking farms, hay stacks,
wagon rides, Indian corn, corn stalks, colorful mums (yellow,
white, burnt orange, vibrant purple) and pumpkins - tiny orange
globes and even white ghostly ones to the biggest, brightest jack-o'-lanterns you can find on a cool Autumn afternoon. There are gourds and
straw bales and garden decorating and soon assorted nighttime
creatures will be lurking around corners and doorways.
Maple trees are ablaze with color along an old country road during a weekend fall foliage tour.
Fall is fun
- Autumn is absolutely tantalizing. Whether you are sipping on
a warm glass of apple cider or working your way through a corn
maze - just make sure that you and your family or friends venture
out and take advantage of each and every Fall day - and don't
forget that true sign of Autumn - a campfire or bonfire in your
back yard or in a woodsy campground.
The scents of Fall fill the
air and the breezes bring adventure anew. Jump in that leave pile
like you were a kid again and toast those marshmallows. You are
never too old or young to enjoy Fall - so ENJOY!
