My Fall Bushel List

Why settle for just a fall bucket list? I’ve decided to make a fall bushel list instead! Might as well dream big and see how many of these things I can really manage before winter arrives on December 21st. Note my list is in a very random order. Bold items added to make post easier to read.

  1. Enjoy a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte

  3. Attend all the high school marching band competitions (2 down)
  4. Make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and share recipe on the blog
  5. Visit Louisburg Cider Mill and get some apple cider
  6. Make my mom’s apple cake and share recipe on the blog
  7. Enjoy my fall scented candles on a dark, rainy day

  9. Watch for migrating birds
  10. Make apple cinnamon leaf ornaments for a fall tree

  14. Have a Harry Potter movie marathon

  26. Make a pumpkin pie
  27. Bring some outdoor plants inside (need to get pots)
  28. Collect some pine cones
  29. Eat some candy corn (but not so much it makes me sick! Goal)
  30. Learn a craft

  32. Have a lazy Netflix day

  34. Drink a hot tea in the afternoon
  35. Go to the Farmer’s Market before they close for the year
  36. Visit the KC Zoo
  37. Attend a fall festival
  38. Make Taco soup
  39. Go to Trader Joe’s for some fall inspired treats
  40. Try the Halloween Ice Cream at Cold Stone Creamery (J and I already agreed we need to get the smallest size and maybe split it even)

  41. Clean out car, make sure there are blankets in trunk for cold evening football games
  42. Try out the new coffee shop near my work (I received a gift card for it last Christmas and still haven’t made it in there!)
  43. Host a get together in our home
  44. Make fried green tomatoes

    well, you’ll keep busy! Do you think you’ll do most of these? I do.
    Fried green tomatoes… well I might have to try that with the tomatoes that finally fleshed out on the vine only to have frost last night. While covering them I broke a branch and took it inside.
    It feels good to make a list and know what would make you feel good. I’d say that’s VERY organized.

    Thank you for your kind words. Knowing me, I’ll probably at least do all the food related items. Hope to conquer at least half of them. Our first frost warnings are probably around the corner, it’s finally chilly at night and in the mornings OR it’ll warm back up and be in the mid-80’s again. Who knows around here. Hope you have a great weekend!

    I love #30. I try to learn something new each year and I also try to can a new recipe each year. This year I failed miserably. Hoping for a better year next year.

      I should be better about trying new things. Hope 2020 (seems weird to type that!) is a much better year for you!
