I crossed a number of things off my Fall Bucket List last week! I’m not sure I’ll have them all crossed off by the beginning of December, but this has still be a successful fall! Having a few fun things to look forward to and a list to tackle helped me stay in the moment and enjoy all that autumn had to offer.
We had a couple tense moments while I was trying to learn to drive the Volvo, but in the main, our marriage survived and I can now say that I can drive a manual transmission without too many hiccups. Last weekend I successfully drove her home from Costco!
You know how sometimes you try a new recipe and instantly know that it will become a favorite? These Ginger Snap Cookies were like that for me. These are amazing. I’m surprised they lasted long enough for me to package some up for our neighbors. I am already trying to figure out when I can steal a few hours to make another batch.
In the interest of full disclosure, this picture isn’t really from the walk we took on Sunday afternoon – it’s a cropped photo from a few autumns ago. We really did take a walk though! And, I walked through piles of leave on the sidewalk and heard that satisfying crunch – which of course scared Ike. One of the things that was so great about the walk was that we didn’t take our phones. No distractions (and no photos). I hope we can sneak in another one of these before winter sets in.
How was your autumn this year? Any last minute activities you’re trying to squeeze in before Christmas?
