I shared my struggles with the fall season last week so I thought I should spend this Friday sharing five things I do like about fall.
Hopefully, I can find five things! If this were a summer list, it would be an easy task. However, finding five things I like about this season may be a bit more of a challenge. Good thing I love a challenge!
Five Things I Like About Fall:
Certain foods just require cooler weather. Please, do not serve me chili on a one-hundred degree day. However, a cold and rainy damp fall day. Yes, please!
Most trees around here are just starting to change colors. I know they will only become more vibrant and beautiful as the season continues. A few trees though have already lost most their leaves thanks to those windy days that fall brings (I happen to also enjoy the windy days. It doesn’t really get old saying, “It looks like a rather blustery day!”)
The Time Change Back To The RIGHT Time
I like my sleep. It annoys me when Daylight Saving Time takes away an hour of it every spring. “The days get naturally longer and shorter!” and “Let’s move to a state that doesn’t participate in this nonsense!” might be heard coming from my mouth on more than one day. At least, fall gives me back my hour. Give me my light in the mornings where it belongs!
My TV Shows Return For Their Season Premiere
Summer television shows are a bit lacking. There are a few I don’t mind watching but I will fully admit to not really making an effort to watch American Ninja Warrior every week. Once October arrives, so do the television season premieres of all my favorite shows. Also, Netflix usually finally gets around to adding in the new (to me) seasons of a few more shows.
I Like Candy
This might be a repeat of number one but I think candy does deserve its own category. This is the time of year when it seems to be most abundant. Candy corn, Almond Joys, Mounds, Reese Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers bars, Milky Ways (frozen!), Caramel Apple Suckers, Tootsie Pops, Gummy Worms,Bottle Caps, starburst,…What’s your favorite candy?
