Good morning gals.
I wanted to tell you about Marie's giveaway over at her blog, Primitives by Olde Lady Morgan. Marie has been busy creating goodies for Fall and she's giving away this witch-e-poo, which I simply adore, especially her quirky little pumpkin necklace!
One of the requirements for entering the giveaway is that we make a post telling why we are looking forward to Fall. Oh, I do love the warmth of summer, but Fall is such a special time too.
Where I live in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, we have lots of rolling hills and farmlands. The area comes alive with color. I love the beautiful colors...the yellows, oranges, reds, greens and browns. I love the smell of fallen leaves. I love the nip in the air. Here in the Northeast, we also experience very warm days...called Indian summer. These final days of warmth are our last glimpse of Summer past, as we prepare for the cold Winter months.
I love pumpkins and gourds and cornstalks. I love our annual family outing to the Corn Maize at a local farm, where we purposely get lost amongst the dry corn stalks and throw corn at each other.
I love the abundance of local apples, just calling to be bitten into, baked into pies, apple dumplings or crisps. Oooh...and my mouth waters at the thought of an ice cold glass of apple cider or a mug of mulled cider on a cold evening.
I love preparing the bounty of the garden into tasty treats, making jams, jellies, salsa, applesauce and relishes to put up for the long winter ahead.
I look forward to watching the farmers spending hours and hours harvesting the vast acres of field corn and soybeans.
I love getting together with family for our annual pumpkin carving, and dressing up to scare the local trick-or-treaters.
Fall also means Friday nights spent at the high school football games, drinking mugs of hot chocolate and routing for the home team.
Oh yes, Fall is wonderful.
Thank you Marie for making me take the time to remember why Fall is such a wonderful transition into the Winter.
