Sweet November ????

Many people dread the beginning of winter. 

  • The shorter days.
  • Cooler, OK... COLDER weather.
  • The pending snow and long winter.
  • Shovelling snow.  
  • Scraping icy cars

For some odd reason, I'm not one of those people.  I love the fall.  

  • The beautiful, sunny, crisp days which are perfect for walking.  
  • The brilliant blue sky.
  • Multicoloured foliage. 
  • The first fire of the season, crackling in the wood stove.  The smell of which never fails to remind me of going to my grandmother's farm.
  • Looking forward to the day when the landscape will be wearing a stunning and pristine white coat. 
  • The excitement of a coming snowstorm and the relief when everyone is home, safe and sound.
  • Big Sunday dinners of turkey, roast beef and meatloaf.
  • Hot apple cider, hot chocolate topped with a dollop of freshly whipped cream.

Do you fall (pun intended lol) into the former or latter group?

Sadly I have to say I would much perfer the dog days of Summer. But i do have to admit I love many of the reason you love Fall. I just dont like being cold and Im not fond of shorter days.. But I do love the Fall foilge and colors. The smeel of the fire crackling and hot chocolate and apple cider to mention some of the reason I dont mind the Fall and Winter and can get by. Though my favortie hoilday is Christmas. I love white Christmas and crips snow faling in the air with a fire in the fire place with the smell of pine from the Christmas tree. to name a few.

I fall somewhere in the middle of those two. I love the colours of autumn, the smell in the air after the first snowfall, fires in the grate and cosy cups of tea. I really dislike scraping the windshield, shoveling the drive and hauling water to the hens and goats.

I like the changing seasons. It give me something to look forward to when the end of 'old' season is drawing near.
I like the warm evenings in Summer, the lazy days spent in the shade, the abundance of flowers. In Fall, I like the crisp cool air, being able to get out in the yard without the bugs, the glorious colours of the changing leaves. In Winter I love the crisp snows(not the shoveling, a lot, but I don't even mind a little of that). Then the new fresh growth of the Spring and that smell in the air is always exciting.
I guess I'm living in the right place for all of that

I LOVE Fall for reasons from column A and column B...I love that its getting darker and I like the snow as long as it doesnt get too too cold. But you forgot to mention the most important reason to love fall... The bugs are all dead (or hibernating) ;)
