5 Things: Ode to Fall

Labor Day is upon us here in the States and you may know what that means. Fall. The has been a bit chilly in the morning and it is like *BANG* fall is here. So without much ado, here is my ode to fall:

1. Pumpkin this, pumpkin that.

Jack O’Lanterns, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup. Pumpkin, a native North American vegetable!

2. Corduroys.

There is nothing like the swishing noise that corduroys make. In fact, I broke out a pair this week and wore them. The sound is reassuring to me and I just love how they feel. I loved Corduroy, the bear, growing up as well.

3. Colored Leaves.

With Tropical Storm Irene this year, the leaf peepers might stay away but if there is one good thing about the approach of dreaded winter is the pretty leaves that New England is know for. I definitely want to go apple picking this year and perhaps do a bit leaf peeping myself.

4. Flannel Sheets

With the return of the chilly weather, flannel sheets make their appearance. I love the coziness of them. Another reason not to get out of bed in the morning.

5. Hot Apple Cider

I have been to bring people to the the hot apple cider side. Yum! Spiked or not, it is good and warms me up. I can’t wait to have my first cup. I may have to have some when picking apples and going leaf peeping.

What are some of your fall favorites?


  1. Fall is my favorite season and I agree with every one of your five things! As a matter of fact, I just had pumpkin spice coffee the other day. Mmm, pumpkin!

  2. I love all that stuff about fall too! The only thing I don't like is the weather....I'm always cold!

  3. pumpkin muffins and pumpkin beers!


I love your comments!
