I love the weather - cool and crisp, sometimes very foggy (mysterious!). Its cold enough to be interesting and wear layers and its awesome to be out in for hours...without getting too hot & sweaty or way too cold & numbing.
I love apples and winter squashes and making stews and starting to bake again after avoiding the stove and oven for most of the summer.
I love Halloween, and dressing up, and the myths around the thinning of the barrier between this world and the Other. There seems to be a lot of dreaming and possibility in Autumn. Usually this time of year is a very creative time for me, with writing. Not this year, I'm so busy, but I can still feel the ideas pushing in my brain.
I don't love that Christmas stuff gets earlier every year, or that it gets dark so fast (candles are nice, but at 5 at night its a bit much...), or that I start to shut down into 'hibernate' mode, but still. Autumn is my favourite time of year. :)
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's learning to dance in the rain.
Fall colors and food, spending time with friends, holiday spirit, the joy of giving and most importantly FAMILY!
Family getting together, holiday movies, christmas decorations, etc.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be

I love the Indian Summer and Autumn leaves. Now, that's over, and I think about that family gathering which will be great fun and the pumpkin pie too!
I like that it is getting colder. As a runner hot weather is my enemy.

Just that holiday feeling. The glow and happiness. My grandson sat and went through a catalog this morning over here at my house. He circled it all. Now that is the part I love the most....such excitement and when the day comes he will be happy just to open gifts, he won't remember what he circled. I just know the excitement.
It all begins with me.
Everyone is happy
It's not about what you can't do. It's all about what you can do. Never ever give up!
Spending more time with my daughter, son-in-law and, last, but certainly not least, my grandson! The food is good, but incidental.

What is your favorite thing about this time of year?
For me, it is the warm food! I love making beans and cornbread...it's one of my favorite comfort foods!
Take Care and God bless,
