autumn - a wish list

Meh. I'll blog more personally tomorrow. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning and came up swinging. And I'm still not quite over the weekend.

Plus I don't drink coffee, so when I wake up in a bad mood I just have to sit in it, wallowing crankily, until it ebbs out of my system. Onwards and upwards, people.

autumn wish list:

lovely evening walks

yummy hot chocolate

succeeding in carving pumpkins

getting to go apple picking

"exploring" the Halloween candy aisle

sipping hot apple cider with cinnamon sticks

snuggling in fuzzy blankets

finally getting to wear my boots

laughing at the babies who are wearing the most ridiculous and/or adorable costumes

falling asleep with the heater on

wearing my new fingerless wool gloves (and not getting them caught on any of my swiss army knives)

falling in love with new poetry ( I always fall back in love with poetry in autumn)

buying cheap school supplies (hello, life time supply of post-its!)

finding more hiking trails to explore

taking more photographs

good tv shows this season (both new and returning)

holidays, holidays, holidays

enjoying the leaves changing color

being stoked about the possibility of camping in October

putting candles in the windowsill

baking again

and the promise of change and transformation, towards a brighter moment and better version of ourselves...

I love your list!!! I actually got to break out my heavy blanket last night and put it under my quilt (it was in the 50s here) and I'm so ready for boot weather!!! XOXO

I would like to do at least one of those autumn-like things with you when I come to visit in October. Hopefully two :)

i like that your wishlist is so positive. i absolutely HATE that winter is around the corner but things like this remind me that fall is still standing between me and the horrible cold :)
