In the interest of full disclosure, this post was inspired by this Yes and Yes post. I seriously love that blog.
It’s starting to feel a little bit like fall here in Reno, although the afternoons are still TOO HOT. Fall is my favorite season (and the season my wardrobe is most designed for), so I’m a little bit pissed by the late onset. Alas, the sun gives no fucks about how I feel.
Here we have, in list form, 10 fun fall things to do:
1) Drink a pumpkin spice latte.
I know it’s cheesy, but they are JUST SO GOOD. One morning while I was in the shower, Mr. W went out and got me one. I think I’ll keep him.
2) Knit something.
I need to do this. I really enjoy knitting, and I have a blanket that I’ve been occasionally working on for about 2 years.
3) Make something homemade that you’ve never made before.
I’m thinking about trying to bake a loaf of bread from scratch. You could try pumpkin pie, spaghetti sauce, or cheese. I’m sure there are non-food options too, but I haven’t had enough coffee to think of any.
4) Carve a pumpkin.
I haven’t carved a pumpkin in years, and I am determined to change that. I even have a balcony where I can display it now!
5) Play a game or do a puzzle.
Summer is all about outdoor activities. Fall is a great time to enjoy something inside like an old game or a jigsaw puzzle.
6) Go for a hike.
On the flip side of 5, we are running out of nice days, so enjoy the fantastic fall weather too.
7) Start shopping for Xmas gifts.
It builds anticipation, and helps prevent a mid-December freak out.
8) Take some pictures.
Pumpkins are very good at holding a pose.
9) Go to a football game and drink hot chocolate.
Actually watching the game is not required. I personally enjoy it, but I know not everyone feels that way.
10) Try a seasonal beer.
Then let me know how it was!
Happy autumn! Hopefully winter doesn’t come too fast!
