Ok, this is in response to a “Back to Blogging” challenge that I took part in last year. It was about posting fall bucket list ideas; what activities we wanted to partake in to celebrate Fall. I have updated the list for 2017 by adding a couple new ideas. Fall is great season for planning new activities, and finding new ways to celebrate the change of season.
So here is the Fall bucket list ideas I want to accomplish in the next couple months before winter gets here.
- Make another 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 new burlap fall wreath for the front door. I will post pictures when it’s done. 🙂 Here’s a link to a fall wreath that I made last year: Fall Wreaths – My Current DIY Project
- 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.) Anyway, check out my Holiday Decorations Pinterest board to see what I am aspiring to this year: Holiday/Seasonal Decorations
- Go get one of those pumpkin latte things that everyone is always raving about. I don’t drink coffee very often, 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.
- Check out a local corn maze this year. There are several where we live, since we live in a very rural area. They all seem like fun, and most serve hot chocolate, etc. I have never done a corn maze in my life, but it seems like the kind of thing to do for fall.
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 are your bucket list ideas 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!
