I love your lists and this one doesn't disappoint. It inspires me to think more about Autumn and prepare for beautiful leaf filled days.

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

Always love your lists and love that you're doing a swap. If I can manage it, I'll sign up! Hope summer was good to you. And what's 'Indian Summer'?

I love your list.
I love you

Amy said...

Sounds like a perfect autumn to me! And I love the way your list resembles something of an acorn! :)

Tracy said...

Oh, this is a sweet list for autumn. I'm planning on a good clear out and rearrange of closets & cupboards next week. Need to put away summer clothes here and get out fall/winter-wear. Little Women (the 1994 one, with Winona Ryder) is my fall film of choice. As the story begins close to Christmas, it always puts me in a frame of mind to embrace the new season. I baked a streusel coffee cake this morning--extra cinnamon! ;o) Happy Days, my friend ((BIG HUGS))

Jennifer said...

delicious list:)

Jeanie said...

I know I always say this because I love your lists. However, somehow after reading yours, my list gets a lot longer!

Great list! (And thanks to Tracy for the excellent reminder of Little Women.) I wish you a very happy start to autumn, Relyn.

What a wonderful list and beautiful photo.
I was out running errands yesterday and at a doorway shop they had a huge basket full of cinnamon pinecones. It took me right into autumn. I could smell it all day long. Mmm . . . a spicy sweetness. Next time I will buy some to take home.

I feel like I just walked through a pile of autumn leaves with a sweet breeze blowing and lots of time to spare.

Oooh, these are good suggestions for Fall. I looked up Dancing at the Harvest Moon online and it looks like a good read under a warm blanket on a cold night. I'm going to look up Indian Summer in a moment. Thanks for the suggestions, Relyn!

HKatz said...

Anything to do with cinnamon and apples gets my vote :) And a picnic - I hope you have blue skies and wonderful cool weather for that.

Gigi Thibodeau said...

Love your list, Relyn! Wish I could do a couple of those items with you! Think I need to make a list for myself, too. This weekend, apple-picking and closet organizing will be at the top of my to-do's!

What a joy to be visiting you this afternoon. Thanks for always being such an inspiration, my friend. You are the best. xoxo Gigi

What a wonderful list. A perfect list for Fall. So cozy and loving.

I just made some apple crisp this evening!
I put some pear in it for the very first time.
I think it will be the last.
Not so crazy about the pear.

Oldies, but Goodies
