What's to love about Fall?

I was thinking about how much I love seeing the leaves changing colour and the stunning images they create as they turn. I love getting ready for Hallowe'en, coming up with original and interesting costumes (I went to a bar dressed as a nun when I was 19... turned a lot of heads!) and carving jack-o'lanterns. I love the smell of the first wood fire of the year and pumpkin pie and having family dinner at Thanksgiving.

But I don't love that I once again have rodent(s) in my house. I don't love that my garden is brown and drab again. I don't love the thought of scraping frost off my car windows in the dark before I can leave for work or the thought that soon we'll have snow to shovel too. And I hate that I already need my headlights at both ends of my shift. Doesn't matter whether it's morning or night, I'm driving in the dark. Ick.

What do you love or not about Fall?

I love nothing about fall. I think the leaves are ugly, the trees without leaves depressing, the snow suffocating.

I don't suffer from SAD or anything. lol

I LOVE Autumn!

The colours are magnificent.

The leaves on the ground look pretty.

I like the cooler days after a hot Aussie summer.

I like cooking casseroles, stews, puddings, and having porridge for breakfast.

I like the fact I'm still alive to see another season! :)

Right now? .... I'm enjoying our southern hemisphere SPRING! lol

I love the colors of tree's leaves. I had a maple in the front of my house, when the sun shinning between the levees I so beautiful... ..Nice memories...

I love sounds of my boots between dried leaves and when my hands become cold and I need to keep a big hot coup of coffee closed to be warmed again. Cold without hot coffee is a tragedy! LOOOL. I love THE FALL when I was enough little... to enter under a wool shirt fine tobacco smelling, to warm my self....he, he, he soo old I am now, looool. I love the sun in the fall is not burning is not freezing is just as you need to be. I love the Halloween... and to see the children soul in each adult soul. I HATE THE COLD of souls, hearts and environments, even if you tell it diplomacy or seasons balance, he, he, he. I love fall if is closed to summer, he, he, he!

FALL IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND WELCOME

fall means that the humidity and heat are gone..you can get out and walk w/o the heat overwhelming you

trees are beautiful, leaves soft under your feet

but i can understand how some people in the northern climates will be see the coming of snowstorms and high heating bills, my neice and her husband, both with health problems, live in ohio and they have to hire yard help winter and summer, the salt is hard on their cars, but humans adapt and when sping time comes we are saying OH NO SUMMER IS NOT FAR BEHIND and they are saying, OH YES SUMMER IS NOT FAR BEHIND

I love the fall! I love the smells of wood fires, fresh dirt, cinnamon and crisp apples. I love kicking up piles of leaves and taking my grandkids out Trick-or-Treating. I love the bright blue skies and the brilliant colors of maple and oak trees. I love Thanksgiving and family evenings by the fireplace with steaming mugs of cocoa. In short, I love everything about fall except the fact that winter follows it.....I'm not a fan of cold and damp and grey days that stretch on endlessly for months and months. But for now, I'm enjoying the sights and smells of Autumn, and won't worry about what I can't control.

I just blogged about what a wonderful fall day it is and how much I enjoyed my hike in the park. I also said that the season that follows fall is my least favorite.

I forgot about the World Series!! How could I forget the annual culmination of my second-favourite sport?

I also forgot about football and how disruptive it used to be to my television watching pleasure! As in, Oh crap, the game went long again and now I'm going to miss the start of such-and-such! Thank God for TiVO.

Marla, you might not enjoy trick-or-treating as much if you lived near me. We plan our kids' costumes so they can wear a snowsuit underneath, and they often are slogging through several inches of snow on the big night. Of course, it's dark here by about 6 pm then and the kids are all-but-invisible.

Ugh, fall. Don't like it a whole lot. I need to live 6 months in the US and 6 months in Australia so I can have only spring and summer! I just find fall and winter depressing. Maybe I need to become a football or hockey fan....

there is a famous quote said about the inhabitants of buffalo:

"in the winter, you can't tell men, women and lamp-posts apart. in the snow, they all look the same!" :p

that said, all the girls looked totally hot inside hsbc arena during a sabres game... and they looked totally hot at an after party at chippewa street :d

did i mention that hockey season was upon us???? :bow:

go sabres!

 

unrepentant sabres fan!
