Ten on Tuesday...oh, another one!

This time it's 10 things you love about fall, and since I really do love fall, I think I can play along with this one, too!

1. Cooler temperatures. I am not a summer fan at all, I hate heat and humidity. So I adore not having to run the A/C all the time!
2. The air is crisp and clear - and that means I can walk outside on the Greenway! Saturday, I shared a lovely walk with my WW buddy, and it was delightful to get the exercise without dripping from the heat!
3. It's apple and pumpkin season, and that means it's time for my two favorite low-point treats: Baked Honeycrisp Apples with Maple Sugar Candy (2 points), and Pumpkin Fluff (1 point)!
4. I can turn on the oven again and bake potatoes (usually sweet ones, but sometimes an Idaho!). And roasts...with potatoes and carrots and celery - roasted veggies!
5. Warm woolies - sweaters, and fingerless mitts come out quickly, because someone in our office still runs the A/C and freezes us out...not naming names.
6. I kick into high gear with knitting and sewing items for holiday gifts and for charity.
7. Football is back on TV and once in a blue moon you'll find me catching a Steeler's game and knitting...(shhhh....don't tell anyone!)
8. It's soup season! Out comes the crockpot and away we go with all the recipes I've been collecting with an eye to cooler temps and the need for a wonderful steaming bowl of soup.
9. White pumpkins and purple mums!
10. The Meezer comes back to bed - to burrow underneath the covers, heat-seeker that she is...I miss her in the summer time...I have no idea whether The Tonk will join us or not.

I love "soup season". I can't wait to crock up a big pot of something yummy. I'm just not ready to be so cold. *hugs*

I love fall, too! Especially soup and warm woolies, and cuddly cats :)

Another vote of agreement.

Our kiddens haven't learned to cuddle under the blankets yet. Instead they attach your feet whenever you move them. Funny the first 3 or 4 times...

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
