I'm now ready to fully embrace FALL! It took me a while longer this time because the summer seemed so short. Having a big snow storm in May might have added to the desire to prolong summer. I know many of you have been "into Fall" about a month now. Yeah, I'm getting a late start. But just to make sure Fall doesn't come and go without embracing all the beautiful things Fall has to offer, I'm making a FALL/AUTUMN BUCKET LIST.
Here are a few things on my list:

                                                  Buy some Mums
                                                  Take a drive and enjoy the Fall colors
                                                  Walk through the woods
                                                  Make apple pie and apple crisp
                                                  Decorate for Fall

                                                  Roast marshmallows over the fire pit
                                                  Bring out the sweaters
                                                  Tailgate party at a football game
                                                  Rake leaves and jump into them ( or let the grandkids jump into them)

                                   Bring out the ginger, cinnamon, and pumpkin scented candles
                                   Make bread and butter pickles
                                   Buy some pumpkins and bittersweet
                                   Go to the Fall Farmer's Market
                                                    Go to the Fall Junk Bonanza
                                                    Make chili and corn muffins
                                                    Make caramel apples
                                                   Make caramel corn

         One more thing...It wouldn't be Fall without taking my Mom to a church lutefisk dinner...a    Scandinavian tradition  with all the many Norwegians and Swedes here in Minnesota.

So what's on YOUR Fall Bucket List?


  1. I love this idea! I think I'll make a list, too. We're going to our first Fall festival tomorrow so that's a start! Happy Fall my friend!

    1. Happy Fall to you also! Have fun at the Fall Festival!

  2. 😍. Your bucket list is loooong! Definitely, we need to get those apple recipes cooked.

    1. Looking back, I noticed that most of the things on the list seemed to be about FOOD! Guess I better get cookin' !

  3. Sandy, I LOVE fall, too! And I love your bucket list! I would have to say that one of my things to do, is to get to Minnesota so I can meet you in person! (Do you remember I have relatives there?? It really is a possibility!) And speaking of jumping into leaves....have you seen the You Tube video of the dog having so much fun playing in a huge pile of leaves?? It's adorable!!)

  4. So get movin' and get here! ; ) That would be great fun!
    Haven't seen the video yet. I'll go check it out!
    See you soon?
