My birthday is in the Autumn, I have so many wonderful memories of my birthdays, friends, fun, cake, and more..
But most of all, I love the colors, the crisp fresh air, the almost rustic look or country cottage feel of my deck covered in needles and cones from all the tall pine trees, and with colored leaves from the oaks and maples. making a scar crow to sit on my front stoop, I enjoy autumn fairs that take you back in time and festivals hay rides and mazes too.
I love the Fall harvest fruits and vegetables, apple picking and resulting pies or warm apple crisp, pumpkins with faces their insides scooped out, roasting seeds, making pies, muffins, and pudding from them, leaving none of the giant gourd to waste.
The smells of the burning wood in fireplaces and of the pies in my oven, and of the soups on the stove, as well as of the scented candles filled with the odors of the season, treasures like pine, spice,pumpkin, apple or cinnamon.
Halloween, oh how I love the decorating, the spooks all around, and so many costumes, adults and children, sporting fantasy and fun. Children with treats in their bags running about door to door, showing off their favorite superheroes or characters from books or TV. haunted houses, and ghost tours then stories as well. Then the thrillers and chillers watching movies after the candy giving is done , getting some popcorn and snuggling close while ghosts and demons send chills causing gasps, and a great end to Halloween night.
Then we have Thanksgiving, the trees are almost empty of leaves, but the laughter and hugs of family and friends fill rooms, along with the smell of a turkey that has been cooking all day, as do the sounds of sports on TV, and the parade with the announcement that Santa is ready for his big day.
I don't know how anyone could dislike the fall season, oh, yes, it is chilly and soon it may snow, but just think of the icy ponds full of children and lovers skating about, and how pretty the snow really will be, and we can just think for a bit and realize just maybe the beautiful crystal like icicles glistening beautifully out the window that the glass is not half empty but half full and we can find beauty in so much .
