I know it’s not autumn yet, and I know that it won’t even FEEL like autumn here until mid-November or so, but I love this time of year. My brain always equates “September through November” with the three months of fall, and dammit, despite the weather, I’m going to treat them like they are the three months of fall! I have lots of things I want to do this autumn. In no particular order:
Go to the corn maze. It’s not far away and not too expensive and it’s pretty much the closest we can get to a midwestern version of a pumpkin patch.
Decorate the house for Halloween early this year. Because why not??
Include a ghost circle. This was my favorite Halloween decor we’ve ever done, and we haven’t done it in 15 years.
Read lots of good books for RIP. Of course!
Participate in NaNoWriMo and attend some in-person meetups. This one scares me. I haven’t done any writing in about three years, though, so I NEED to get back into it somehow.
Have at least one fireside night. Mmmm.
Host dinner, or a girl’s night, or an autumn party… Or maybe all three?
Finally get myself some brown boots! Don’t ask why I haven’t done this when I’ve wanted them for years now.
See the Downton Abbey movie in theatre. Most anticipated movie of 2019 for me.
Dress up for Halloween. Jason and I are thinking Scoops Ahoy outfits.
Wear more beanies/hats. I always forget!
Watch Hocus Pocus. Of course.
Make pumpkin muffins. Mmmm…
Go thrift store shopping. I’m not sure why I associate this will autumn, but I do, and I hope I can find some great things there on the cheap. We have some really awesome thrift stores in the area.
Watch football. I don’t really even need to put this on here. Of course, we’ll be watching football.
Decorate pumpkins. We always buy pumpkins but it’s been quite some time since we actually carved them.
What’s on your autumn bucket list? Are there summer-lovers out there who hate me for putting this up when August isn’t even quite over yet? Heh. Sorry, y’all – I have to dream of autumn, it gets me through these 100+ temp days!
