Ok, this is in response to a “Back to Blogging” challenge that I took part in last week. Yes, I didn’t get these up and posted with everyone else. I had other things I was posting about at the time, so I am playing “catch up” and posting them now. Better late than never, I guess. 🙂
So here is a short list of the items I want to accomplish in the next couple months before winter gets here.
- Make an autumn wreath. I was out shopping yesterday, doing my errands and trip to the grocery store, and I happened to stop by the local JoAnne’s fabric and craft store. And I had a coupon, so lets’ face it … resistance was futile. It was inevitable. I love coupons, and will find a way to use them if they are good enough. So I bought some supplies to make a great burlap fall wreath for the front door. I will post pictures when it’s done. 🙂
- Actually carve some pumpkins this year and decorate the front porch a bit. Heck, let’s decorate the whole house – if I can find the fall decorations. I do that every year; it gets to be halfway through a season, and I suddenly remember that I have decorations to put up. I never seem to be on top of decorating for the holidays/season. For whatever reason, they tend to sneak up on me and I find myself unprepared. But not this season! (Famous last words, if you know me … we’ll have to see if this season will be any different than in the past.)
- Go get one of those pumpkin latte things that everyone is always raving about. I don’t drink coffee much, so Starbucks is like a foreign country to me. I don’t know the language, or the culture, etc. But I keep hearing about these supposedly wonderful fall drinks they have there, and I am curious. So maybe that right there will be fodder for another blog post all it’s own.
That’s pretty much it, I guess. I don’t have any grandiose ideas about what I will accomplish this fall. Mainly, I just want to enjoy the season, and wear my sweater that I love so much. 🙂
What’s on your list for fall? Any projects or outings that you have planned? Please share … maybe you will give me (and the rest of us) some good ideas!
