Tuesday Top Five – What I love about the Fall

Hello Friends!  I’m deep in the middle of a book deadline (due September 15th!) but I came out of the cave long enough to realize that summer is waning and we are headed into the next season.

Now, I love summer – the heat, the pool, the smell of sunscreen and chlorine – but  am glad to see the change happen as well.  And, here are my top five reasons:

1.  Fall food.  I love good, old fashioned comfort food and when the summer salads are gone, give me stew, soup, or yummy casserole.  My favorite is my homemade chicken pot pie.

2. Fall TV shows:  Five words.  Hawaii 5-0. Alex O’Loughlin shirtless.

3. Bad weather: Nothing like a good snow storm to force us inside to do nothing but hibernate. yes. please.

4.  Turtlenecks:  Love the ribbed kind that hug my body and look good with jeans and work pants.

5. Christmas: Best holiday ever. I deck my house out like freakin’ Macy’s and run up an electrical bill that makes my husband cry.

See you later,

  1. I love fall too, Robin, even if it only means I’m back to a regular schedule with school starting again. I love the crisp days, the changing colors, the new clothes! I even like the pool being closed so my friends can’t whine about me staying inside to write.

  2. I love fall! It’s my favorite time of the year. The colors are my colors. I can where my deep jewel toned greens, purples and darker colors. Jeans, sweater tops and long-sleeved jersey knit tops with a black blazer are my faves with my ankle boots. I love walking in the mornings when the air is crisp, autumn scented candles, Sunday night bonfires out in the back yard, with a dish of apple crisp and warmed apple cider. Preparing for the Christmas holiday is always fun–but that could take me a whole page of comments…next time 😉

    Good luck on your deadline, Robin!

  3. Happy fall! I have to add candy corn and those yummy candy corn pumpkins to your list! I have a bit of an addiction. 😉

  4. Okay, so I HATE turtlenecks. I think it stems from the time I was a kid and my parents made me wear them and I felt like they (the turtlenecks, not my parents) were strangling me. In my kindergarten school photo, I’m wearing a blue turtleneck, a yellow courdoroy jumper, and I have this miserable expression on my face.
    I like the rest of your list, though! Good luck finishing your book!

  5. It’s definitely one of the things I enjoy about living in this part of the world is the gradual season change (unlike Chicago, my other hometown). I also feel more settled in the fall, and yes, the holidays are all good, but Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorites. It’s the perfect mix of family and friends, relaxation and sharing, that embraces all.
